What’s your favorite holiday tradition? This week it’s Maggie and Christy’s turn to answer.
"One of my favorite family Christmas traditions is that Brian and I exchange our gifts to each other on Christmas Eve after we put the boys to bed. Christmas morning is usually pretty chaotic and we are always focused on the kids so this is a nice quiet time for us to really focus on each other and enjoy exchanging our gifts. It also gives us a chance to stop and talk about the true meaning of Christmas and reflect on the things we are grateful for. I love it!!"
Our family enjoys many Christmas traditions. There are so many that each year, I get so excited because it really brings our young family together. One tradition I really look forward to (and I know my kids do as well ) is making Christmas Pajamas. Each year, I buy Christmas flannel fabric and make pj's bottoms for each of my kids. I also buy them plain white long sleeve shirts, which we decorative together. First, I iron on a printed holiday saying, then we get out my holiday foam stamps and paint. We have fun going to town personalizing our pj shirts. My kids look forward to this each year and now it's turned into an extended family tradition. My sisters and I get together and make the pj's bottoms, then our kids spend the afternoon decorating their pj tops. It's definitely a memory I cherish each year.
