12 Days of Christmas Traditions--Christmas Day


Isn't it so much fun anticipating Santa's arrival?  Caleb--our google maps-obsessed boy--loved tracking his travels around the world last night.  

Santa doesn't wrap his gifts.  He just leaves them near the stuffed stockings.

Look what he left this year:



He usually leaves a few small gifts in the stockings.  Like headlamps and A-1 sauce.


He always leaves books for everyone.  And lots of candy.


After our Christmas breakfast--french toast made with egg nog, sausage, bacon and eggs--it's time to distribute the gifts from under the tree.


My mom's gifts were so cute.  She did all of them with a monogram.


Natalie couldn't wait for Caleb to open her gift to him: a whoopee cushion.





We spend most of the day lounging around, playing with new gifts and watching movies.  We usually stay in our pajamas for most of the day.

Evening always brings a nice Christmas dinner.  We get out the goblets and toast with our Martinelli's.


And that's how we do Christmas.  

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

Looks like a perfect Christmas day! I want to know if Caleb used his A-1 on that dinner?!

I LOVE all these posts about Christmas Tara. I really think they should be made into a little book. These are such great memories your family will have forever and forever.

Looks like a fun day. Owen got a scooter like Alyssa's from Santa too...only green. And it snowed so he hasn't been able to try it out. Love your Christmas dishes :)
