As the children get older, the holidays are becoming more exciting, especially Christmas. Our weekends have been busy baking holiday treats, making Christmas crafts, attending holiday events, and decorating the house. We also started a new tradition last year that includes Elf on The Shelf, so each morning the kids wake up all excited to see where he has moved to, he’s been a bit lazy starting off this year, but I’m excited to see what mischievous places he will get himself into this year.
My husband and I both celebrated Christmas with different traditions growing up, so we have combined a few to carry on with our own family. Every Christmas Eve my husband’s family would drive around looking at Christmas lights while trying to spot Santa and Rudolph in the sky. My family on the other hand would have a nice dinner Christmas Eve and then each child was allowed to open one present, we have carried the one present tradition on with our family, except it is for a new pair of pajamas. Once the kids put on their new pajamas we then head out to look at all of the Christmas lights and try to spot Rudolph’s red nose in the sky. Last year the kids spotted him, so we had to head home to get into bed so that he would come.
