My friends at MomDot are hosting a Christmas of Dreams blog party for the holidays. Have you noticed the button over there---> Day two is sponsored by LaPlates and Lets Go Strolling and Natitys Design. Today's question posted by Alicia is a request to share our family traditions...
A Christmas tradition started a couple years ago by my dad when he gave my son the story "Twas The Night Before Christmas". Now he reads that to him ever year on Christmas Eve after dinner. So sweet!
Another Christmas tradition around here is that Santa does not wrap his presents. He usually hides them downstairs as well. We open Aiden's presents from us under the tree, then we head downstairs to see what Santa brought. We have another tree down there and that is where we have the presents my husband and I bought for each other. While Aiden checks out his Santa loot, my husband and I exchange our gifts. Then it is off to the kitchen for some bacon and pancakes.
Santa brought this last year, it was fun!
We tend to do things the same on every holiday each year. Seems like our little family is carving out their own traditions as we go. This Easter we spent the night at a local Best Western with an indoor water park. I would LOVE to make that an Easter tradition. We had such a great time there. My son really loves to swim and it was hilarious to see him in the pool and playing with all the slides and the lazy river. Hopefully we can do it again next year!
