What is your favorite group or family activity to do during the holiday season?
We decorate our tree together. I put the tree up and the lights on and Elexis and my husband put the angel on top. We all put on the ornaments. We pop in a Christmas CD or pull it up on iTunes. This has been our tradition since Elexis was born. We used to decorate with a theme and had bulbs, now our ornaments are all special meaning ornaments. I love our tree.
Another tradition is Christmas eve. Elexis gets to open two presents. She gets to open her new pajamas and a movie that we can watch that night. Her pajamas are usually Marie from the Aristocats. It's her favorite movie and I love that Walmart usually has Marie pajamas. I'm quite excited for her to open her Christmas eve movie this year. She has been obsessed with the movie Hugo more over Asa Butterfield. Celebrity crushes have officially descended upon our house and Asa Butterfield is at the top. I'm just glad he is still a teenager (he is 16...excactly 3 years and 18 days older than my daughter...she tells me all the time).
Anyway, those are our traditions. Tomorrow I wrap all of her presents, it is her last day of school for the year.
