I can’t wait for after dinner! We are carrying on a tradition we started a few years ago. When I was little sometimes we got to open up one present on Christmas Eve and the rest waited until Christmas morning. Kai and I decided we’d like to continue that and since we do the 4 presents (something they want, something they need, something to wear, something to read) we wanted to have an additional family present for our Christmas Eve present.

Our family present has a new pair of jammies for each of us, a Christmas movie, and special drinks and snacks. Then we all put our new jammies on, get in the car with a few of the snacks and drive around town looking at Christmas lights. When we get home we put the movie on and all cuddle in a big pile of pillows and blankets. It’s kind of the best.

Have a beautiful holiday! What are you thankful for today?
