"Christmas is such a special time for our family. Growing up my family was very big on Christmas, so I wanted to carry on the tradition and make it important in our Family. My Husband, Kenzie and I have a Christmas tradition. We get new pajamas every year and wrap them up and then open them on Christmas Eve. We of course wear them that night! I love this tradition, because we all go shopping for our pajamas together. It is such a fun family outing!

We also have another special Christmas Eve tradition. My family goes to our Church's Candlelight Service. Then after the service our immediate and some extended family go to my parents house and eat Enchilada soup in amazing bread bowls! Following that we sing some carols & open up some of our gifts. This makes for lots of memories and so much fun as a Family!

Christmas to me makes me think of great times with my family, shopping in crowded stores, warm fireplaces and the glorious smell of pine & taste of peppermint lattes. I love the songs, decor, winter attire and significance to the season. The only only thing I dont like about it is that I have to wait 12 months before I get to experience it again."
