Our Christmas traditions include spending Christmas Eve at my sister's house with my side of the family where we eat an amazing variety and amount of food, drink lots of yummy drinks and sing Christmas carols by Mitch Miller. The red folders were typed and put together by my grandpa many years ago. Oh, and usually shots of Pucker are served before each song :) We normally go to 5:00 Mass on Christmas Eve but this year Eric was scheduled to usher at the 10:00 (new time) and Josh was an altar server so we missed out on the singing this year. (these pictures are from last Christmas)
As it is for most parents, it is a late night but thankfully our kids sleep in compared to a lot of other kids on Christmas morning. We usually make monkey bread, but didn't this year for some reason. We had a nice breakfast all the same and then opened our gifts.
After we've put things together and played for a little while, we all get ready and head to my mother-in-law's house for the rest of the day.
We have a nice dinner, open gifts and then play games and eat for the rest of the evening!
