Day 1 Christmas Blog Challenge

Well the holidays are officially here. Thanksgiving is just a couple days away, then begins Christmas. My most favorite holiday ever!! Yes I do love receiving gifts. I love wondering what my hubby and family will get me. But honestly, I just love the season. The music. The decorations {momma already decorated for Christmas, looks beau-tiful :)}. The food. The desserts. I love it all!!
I have never joined in on a blog challenge, and I saw this Christmas one over at Aly's I thought it would be fun to play along :)

Day 1
Christmas/Holiday Traditions

~When we put up the Christmas tree at momma's house we always watch Miracle on 34th Street. This is an all time favorite movie of mine. Once this occurs, it is offical that Christmas is coming.

~Wrapping presents with momma. I usually always know what she gets my sister and I help her wrap those gifts. I love wrapping gifts, although I will admit, they do not look the best.

~Getting our new ornament for the year. My momma started a tradition with my brother and I when were little. It was that she picked out a new Hallmark Christmas ornament that was a series and would get us the new one every year. Well Erich's ended when he was in junior high I think...mine continnues to this day. I get houses...yes you heard me right, houses. You might think it is odd or funny or weird, but that is what momma picked :) We are going on 27 years of houses. I have all but 1. I think we accidentally threw it away one year :( ( I keep meaning to find it on ebay)
Here is this year's

~We usually spend Christmas Eve with my dad's side of the family, but that isn't going to work this year now that we are here in Texas :( Kinda makes me sad that we won't get to see all our families this year. We will be spending it with a new family this year. Ok, well not new they are my cousins, but new to spending holidays with them.

Well, go join in the fun over at Aly's blog. :)

Happy Holidays!!! :-D

My mom does the ornament tradition each year too! Only she picks an ornament that matches mine and my brothers' personalities. A great tradition, isn't it?
