Family Traditions on Christmas Eve
I know this is really late but I wanted to share what we have done on Christmas Eve for a few years now.
We open presents - one at a time, youngest to oldest. We like to see what each other has given not just see what we individually receive. This tradition makes it exciting for the giver and the receiver. We're not as slow as dad though! - ha ha ha
The kids also open special presents from a special family in Juneau (the Hendersons). These presents are pajamas! The kids look forward to wearing new pajamas the night Santa comes. The kids couldn't wait to put them on. They all wanted to sleep with the little stuffed animals they received too! Thank You Kevin and Janet for making Christmas Eve night a little more exciting! Makayla remembered before she opened her present and couldn't wait to put the pajamas on even before she opened them!
