Merry Christmas

We thought we would share with you some of our Christmas family traditions:


“Our family has pizza on Christmas Eve every year with my sister and her family. We also follow Santa on the NORAD tracker.”  


“We stay the night with my in-laws on Christmas Eve so we can all be together on Christmas morning. We also bake cookie on Christmas Eve.”


“We all go to the Christmas Eve service at church to watch Mya sing. After that we have a celebration with food and gifts with my in-laws. On Christmas Day is just us, and the kids. We spend Christmas with my parents and siblings before and after Christmas since everyone is all over the place.”


"Our family Christmas traditions begin the day after Thanksgiving. We put up the tree and the following day our elf, Wesley comes back. We have lots of little things we do during the season, but the ones we started specifically after we had our first baby was to buy an ornament to represent whatever each kid was into that year. This year, little C has a Pac-man ornament and little D has a Spider-man ornament. And then on Christmas Eve, we open the box that Wesley left us containing new pajamas for each of us and the Night Before Christmas book. We all change into our new jammies, bundle up and go look for Santa while checking out Christmas lights. We come home, Daddy reads the book and we go to bed and attempt to sleep! And speaking of sleep, Big A and I have both been staying awake all hours of the night because -we- are too excited for Christmas!!!"

So from The Nurse Mommy family to yours, we hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
