We just love Christmas time and everything that goes with it! But sometimes it’s hard to step away from the busy day to day and remember to just take in the season, and remember (as trite as it may sound) the reason for the season. William does a good job of helping us to stop and smell the Christmas tree 😉 He squeals with excitement every time he sees it and we have to stop and touch the branches and admire the ornaments. And also try to keep him from grabbing the breakable ones- we’ve already lost a couple! In turn, we talk with him about Christmas and baby Jesus’ birth and His return still to come. We’re hoping as William gets older those are the things he is excited to celebrate at Christmas. We’re also pretty sure he’ll be excited about the presents!
Our family is all about tradition and we shared a little bit about our Christmas stocking tradition last week. Another tradition we love is wearing matching Christmas pajamas. This tradition has been going on since Stia was a toddler and we loved initiating Katherine into it when she and Justin were married. After we get home from Christmas Eve service, we eat dinner, put on our Christmas pajamas and then we each open one gift. On Christmas morning, you can find us all in our matching Christmas pajamas, sitting around the fire opening presents and eating a leisurely breakfast. Most years, we try to stay in them all day!
What are your favorite Christmas traditions? We would love to hear! You can see last year’s Christmas pajamas tradition here!
