Flashback to Christmas Day 2014
Pajamas, homemade egg and ham breakfast by Dad, cinnamon rolls, fresh coffee by Mom, family, presents, stockings....and love sure makes for an exhausting, but absolutely WONDERFUL Christmas. I wouldn't have it any other way.
I know I always blog about my Christmas mornings with my family, but this time I'm going to tell you about a new(ish), fun tradition that we have been doing that we just love! Secret Santa Stockings!
Along with a a gift spending limit, we have also implemented stuffing stockings for each other into our family Christmas tradition. On Thanksgiving, we draw names to determine who we will be giving a stocking to. It's so much fun and my favorite part of Christmas morning! We have really become creative with our stocking gifts. We have been doing this for about 7 years and we have so much fun with it. Over the years, the stockings have gotten bigger and some have even turned into Santa sacks! Lots of yummy snacks, fun gifts and surprises will always be found in all the stockings....and for the past 4 years, there's been a little something for Brady and Brysen found in each stocking, too. :) I love it!
Below are the pictures from our fun-filled, crazy Christmas morning, which always turns into Christmas evening before we know it. :)
