A Very Merry Christmas to All!
As I mentioned on the Repli-Kate It Facebook page earlier this week, I had wished that I would be able to spend time with my family. My wish was granted and I am now here with them celebrating the Christmas Holiday :)
I wore two different outfits today, One on my morning walk, and then the second for present opening and Christmas Lunch (I wore the same blouse with both outfits).
I don’t normally wear a hat on Christmas, but given the fact Kate wears a Hat to church I thought I would accent my outfit with a fun little pillbox hat.
Christmas/Christmas Eve is one of my favorite family Holidays. We are all about traditions and spending time with each other (granted I am sitting here posting instead of playing card games ;)) Some of things we do every year are the following:
- Christmas Morning: Traditional Breakfast/Brunch with Mimosas
- Christmas Morning/Afternoon: Play the cheesiest Christmas Jingles while cooking
- Christmas Morning: A morning walk with the Dogs
- Christmas Morning: Unwrap Presents in Turns so that everyone can witness the giftee opening their gifts
- Christmas Afternoon: A game of Cards
- Christmas Afternoon: Eat an insane spread of Food (Prime Rib, Yorkshire Pudding, Roasted Vegetables, Homemade Bread, Mashed Potatoes, Green Salad, Personal Apple Pies)
- Christmas Night: A game of Monopoly
- Christmas Night: Watch a Movie together
- NEW TRADITION: Me, taking photos of everything to share with you….my family…not amused lol.
What are some of your traditions?
