Christmas Traditions

So this year being Georgia's first Christmas, we have decided to make Christmas Eve all about our family. It will be strange not being with extended family but I always said once we had children, no more traveling. Selfishly, I want Christmas morning to be all about my children and their "Santa time." This year we are going to church and then going to look at lights. We'll come back and have dinner and snuggle up and watch a Christmas movie (or ten!). I want my children to grow up with fond memories of our Christmases together. We will travel to see all of the extended families Christmas day but I like the fact knowing Christmas Eve will be all about us.

My FAVORITE movies of all time are Home Alone and National Lampoon Christmas Vacation....and Love Actually is a close runner up...I've been overdosing on Christmas music and today especially it has really pumped me up for Christmas!

Tonight I am going to finish my wrapping..this year's theme is black and white polka dots with lime green and red ribbons....I'll make sure to take lots of pictures!

Stay tuned for my next giveaway! If Santa falls short, this will definitely make up for it!!!
