I'm going to write about Christmas in two posts. Part one will be Christmas with my family. Part two will be Christmas with my husband's family. We started off the celebrations with Christmas Eve dinner at home with my grandparents and some extended family. After that we went to my family's house for a Christmas sleepover.

Christmas has always been one of my favorite holidays to spend with my family because of our fun traditions. We have a sleepover and then make up a song which we sing at the top our lungs to get our parents up. (This year my husband, son and I slept in the basement, so we woke up to a phone call from my siblings singing the song they wrote.) We also line up youngest to oldest at the top of the stairs and take a picture while my dad goes to see if the Grinch came. :)
|Our son wasn't awake when we took the picture the first time, so we recreated it after. :)|
After the video we opened presents.
|We always do stockings first. Kiddo got a fun lion puppet washcloth.|
|We made our son a kerplunk toy for Christmas. |
There are jar lids inside that he can drop into the hole at the top.
|He loved the bright colors of the wrapping paper.|

After a wonderful Christmas day, we had dinner with my family and then spent one more night there. We spend the day after Christmas doing puzzles, playing games and racing Mario Karts (one of my favorite holiday activities). We also took our son sledding for the first time!
