Do you and your family get to open one present each? Do you read the night before Christmas? Do you leave cookies, milk, and carrots of for Santa and his reindeer? What about the presents, do you put them all out before Christmas eve or the night of after the kiddos go to bed?

When I was little we would be allowed to open one gift and leave milk and cookies. When I met Patrick he didnt do that, he did read the night before Christmas though, and there were no presents until xmas eve after the kiddos were in bed. I thought he was cRaZY! Last year we had them out right after black friday. I liked it better because I didnt have to be up till 2am wrapping lol

Growing up, we got to open one or two presents. One was always pajamas my mom picked out so we'd be all cute and coordinated for Christmas morning Christmas Eve was always the extended family get together with lots of food, movies, and games.

I continued the pajamas on Christmas eve tradition. This year he's getting a couple sets though. I couldnt decide We wont be venturing to families houses this year, hopefully just stay home with our new little one by then. Depending on when he makes his debut, we may be open to having people visit us.

Well, if Charlie Brown Christmas is on we watch it.
I also read the Gift of the Magi by O. Henry.

Leave a couple of cookies and milk out for Santa/Father Winter and thats about it really.

I think we'll leave cookies for santa this year. Greyson keeps talking about making Christmas cookies and santa cookies. Christmas cookies we can eat, santa cookies are for santa
