Christmas Traditions

I love Christmas traditions! We don't have any that are super unique, but I love them just the same. So here's the play by play. Every Christmas Eve we go down to Andy and Melissa's house and stuff ourselves so full with the most delicious food.

We have lots of fun seeing Grandma and Grandpa Behrend because we hardly ever get to.

And of course we act out the Nativity. This was Aliah's first year being in the pagent. She loved dressing up like an angel and going to see baby Jesus.

Then of course the night ends with Christmas PJ's!

Christmas morning was great too. We opened presents then went over to Spencer's mom's to open more presents. Then we met back at my dad's to eat a Christmas Feast, and of course, open more presents! Here's Aliah with all her loot.

(Just to brag about my savvy shoping, we only spent $30 on her!)

I arranged for a talent show in both families. Unfortunately I can't upload any video, but it was really great. We had singing, piano, guitar, flute, cello, and even a saxophone number. I'm so excited to make my family do it again year after year and take credit for this grand new tradition!

We hope everyone's Christmas was Merry and Bright! Ours sure was thanks to great friends and family!

Kelsey,
Talent show is such a good idea! Milko and I've been thinking a lot about establishing traditions this season. For me it turned out to be so important! :) I was really biased on how we spend Christmas :) I've been asking around even random people at the store while shopping for Chirstmas or New Years, or Thanksgiving, what traditions they have in their families. So, one that we established is making presents for each other for Christmas. We bought things too, but hope there will be less and less of those with each year (they were actually just practical gifts that we would need to buy anyway : ) and more of those we make ourselves.
You are so awesome! We want to do something together with you. The sooner the better :)Do you have any ideas as of what we can do?
