Merry Christmas! I wanted to take some time to thank those of you who read this blog and keep up with me through Instagram and Facebook. All of the comments here and in person mean so much to me! Words cannot express my gratitude! Thank you, for allowing me to share my passion of clothes and fashion. I am constantly amazed that so many people follow along!
Here is a look at my Christmas Eve outfit. I love that we dress up for dinner and I get to pull out some of my heels I don’t wear that often! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends! Ours was one of the best and full of wonderful traditions!
We start with Christmas Eve dinner with my husband’s family at a local favorite Japanese restaurant. His family has been going for 32 years! This was a tradition that was started with his grandmother that we’ve continued even after she passed away. Now my grandmother is invited and joins in the tradition.
After dinner, we head to my parents house where the kids receive PJ’s from Santa. It is always crazy with all the kids filled with excitement! We are now up to 8 grandkids 9 and under! It is fun seeing them running around together and ripping into their presents!
Christmas morning is my favorite time! I absolutely love coming out and seeing the presents piled around the tree! That is one of my favorite Christmas memories from when I was little. I always hated when my brothers woke up ahead of me and sorted the presents before I woke up! Now my parents come to our house in the morning. I love that we still spend it together. I can’t imagine not having them there.
After the morning festivities, we head to my grandmother’s house. You never know what you are going to receive with my grandmother. She recently has downsized her house and decided to wrap up random presents for everyone to open. We received a flashlight and a photo album. Grandma this year, also wrapped up some of her shoe collection to share with some of us who were teasing her about her old lady shoes!
Then in the evening,we head to my husband’s parents house. This year, they switched things up for everyone by wrapping everyone’s presents in the same paper. The kids had to follow a legend and find all of their gifts. The kids thought this was a lot of fun!
I love hearing what others do for the holiday. What are your family traditions?
