5 days until Christmas!
Presents are bought & wrapped and our plans are set.
I am so excited to spend time with the fam & celebrate.
My favorite tradition?
It's hard to pick one, but I would say... Christmas morning breakfast.
When my sisters and I were little, we would wake up early and bring our stuffed stocking into mom & dad's room. Each present is carefully wrapped (Santa is a busy guy!) and we open them one at a time.
After stockings, we would line up to go into the family room. (my dad often had to set up the camera)
Santa would leave us one gift under the tree that wasn't wrapped!
As we played with our new toy, dad and mom made breakfast. On the menu:
Green eggs & ham
fresh squeezed orange juice
& my dads special rice recipe.
Then, after breakfast - we open our presents from the parents (one at a time).
This year, Christmas morning at my parents will be a full house. My sisters, mom, dad, TL & the bro-in-laws, and of course, nephew Ryan. (& the pups!)
We celebrate our Christmas with TL's family on Christmas eve. My MIL is a fabulous cook - but we may go out this year.
I am so excited - I feel like a little kid.
I am happy to be able to spend the holidays with my family.
