Christmas Traditions!

January 2, 2011

The day after Thanksgiving the Christmas decor goes up!

We always watch "Christmas Vacation"

Take the annual Family Christmas Tree Photo.

Go on our "Christmas Date"

{we took the Christmas tree pic before date night}

Take tons of pictures to go in our holiday Christmas photo album that J's mom gets us every year.

Put one of our family photos in our yearly picture ornament.

Secret Santa Exchange with my mom and step dad's side.

Early Christmas with Jonathan's grandparents (his mom's side).

Christmas Eve service with my mom's side
(and the little ones open some gifts...Molly Kate thinks Uncle Jonathan is SO funny!)

We do Christmas day with Jonathan's family.
(Jonathan's nephew, Caleb LOVED smashing all the trash...with chocolate on his face)

We celebrate with my dad and step mom on New Year's day (They usually go out of town the week of Christmas)


Here is a list of the things Jonathan and I managed to get accomplished over our 2 week break despite all of the holiday craziness.

Of course we picked the same blog book covers, we're oddly identical, remember?! It only seems fitting =) And can you please come clean out our garage because it is the pits and I have no idea where to begin! We can still fit our cars in, but that's about all I can say for it's organization...
