Hi Jody,

I sure enjoyed reading thru your blog and looking at the pictures of your beautiful family. What adorable children you have!!

I didn't grow up with any christmad traditions, but wiill be with family this year for the first time in 15 years. Will be spending the holidays with mom, aunts, uncles, cousins and some family I haven't met yet. So this is my new tradition starting this year. To spend time with family and enjoy the season (something I haven't done in the past).

What part of Texas do you live in? My daughter and I recently moved to Lubbock. I haven't lived in Lubbock for many, many years, but his has always been home.

Wishing you and yours the best holiday season ever...

Hey Jodi Sue,
My children's favorite Christmas tradition is the choosing of one present that can be opened on Christmas Eve. They love poring over them and trying to decide which one is the best so they can open it first! We did the same thing when I was a kid. If we became too obnoxious the week before Christmas, we were told we wouldn't get to open our Christmas Eve present. Very motivational.
Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

We have SO many favorites!!! Cinnamon rolls on C'mas morning, flying to China on C'mas morning (oops, that was a one time thing, not a tradition), Nate (our "elf on the shelf"), reading a tiny story book under the tree while eating Hershey's Kisses, lots of C'mas music (esp SCC and Amy Grant) played loudly thru the whole house, riding the Pink Pig (pics coming soon to a blog near you!), pic with Santa with Ally's referral group (all from the same SN list), our HUGE C'mas tree, our mom/daughter ornament party (which, is this Sunday if you are in the area!!!), etc....

Hey hey Jodi!

You don't have to put me into the drawing, I just wanted to share.

EVERY SINGLE Christmas my family has a tradition to bring up my most embarrassing moment as a kid.

One Christmas, when I was about one year old, my mother was on the phone with my grandma who was on her way over for Christmas dinner with the rest of the family. When my mom looked down and I had stuck my finger in my dog's butt. She screamed and ever since then my family decides to bring it up every year.

I am usually the "butt" of the joke.

Girl you know I LOVE Longaberger so I couldn't resist.

I didn't have much of a Christmas growing up so unfortunately, no traditions to pass on to my kids really. Looking back, its amazing that as a kid, I was still overjoyed with the season regardless of the fact that there was never much under the tree. We would use my dad's tube socks as stockings and there were always fruit and nuts and some candy in them on Christmas morning. I don't know why I remember that but I loved it!

Anyways, my tradition now is quite different! When we have our family Christmas with my mom and sister and her family, we aren't quite "traditional". We have Indian tacos for lunch and the kids all put on aprons and help my mom make the homeade puffy tortillas. The kids will get their rolling pins and roll them out etc. Not sure when we started this but we have been doing it now for years. The kids really look forward to "Indian tacos" at Nana's on Christmas! Of course after the tacos, they open their gifts from Nana and Aunt "Winnie".
