Love, G'Pa and G'Ma

A Traditional Christmas Breakfast

Christmas Eve Slumber Party
On Christmas Eve all my kids pick one bedroom that they want to sleep in and they gather their sleeping bags and have a slumber party. The idea of sleeping in the same room stems from the idea that the earliest...

Every Christmas eve I pop an extra big batch of popcorn for the family. After we’ve all eaten our fill, we string the rest of it for the birds. We decorate the two big pine trees in the front yard with several...

Wedding Memories Every Christmas
I haven't done it myself but I knew someone I once worked with that had two children. Each year she purchased one Hallmark Christmas ornament that had the year on it and a handmade ornament she bought...
Countdown to Christmas (Advent Calendar)
When my sister, brother and I were young we always looked forward to December 1st. That was the day Mom hung up the Advent calendar at the end of the hallway and we began our countdown to Christmas. We...
Christmas Baking Event
Every year my mom, sister, aunt and two cousins get together for a day full of holiday baking. We've been doing it since we were kids. Now that we're all adults, we take turns hosting the event. The...
The Nutcracker
Every year my two best friends and I go to see the Nutcracker Ballet at our local playhouse. We get all dressed up, go out for a fancy dinner and then off to see the play. After the play, we go back to one of our...
Lighting the Advent Wreath
In anticipation of the Christmas celebration, our family lights an Advent wreath each night before dinner during December. I purchase a some green boughs and four taper candles (3 violet and 1 rose colored)...
Christmas Shopping Excursion
Every year all the women in our family plan a weekend shopping trip for mid-November. This not only gives us a chance to get away and have fun, but it also gives us all a good jump on our Christmas shopping...
