Christmas Traditions

I cannot believe Christmas Eve is already TOMORROW. I have been counting down the days just like when I was kid because I am overly excited about celebrating Mila’s VERY FIRST CHRISTMAS! It’s been something I have thought about since I found out I was pregnant. I love Christmas that much. I have been considering what traditions I wanted to start for my family and cannot wait to see how the weekend turns out.

I was overwhelmed by the success I had with all of her pictures, so I decided to share quite a few of them. I mean, I could not just pick of them, she’s just TOO CUTE.

Look at that cute little baby butt!


Now that we have had a cuteness overdose, back to our family traditions! Since my very First Christmas, my mom would buy my sister and I a unique ornament and now I have an awesome collection on my tree. I absolutely had to do this for Mila since it is by far one of my favorites. Something new that I have always loved and wanted to do was matching pajamas for the entire family. Connor’s family celebrates Christmas Day in their pajamas all day so I thought this would be a fun way to continue that tradition for Connor and our new family.

Tomorrow, we will be spending the day with my family, which will include lots of movies, baking, cooking, and presents in the evening just like usual. I cannot remember when we started this tradition of opening presents on Christmas Eve, but I believe it was because my parents were so eager to gift us our presents. Christmas Day we will be celebrating with Connor’s family which, like I mentioned, we will be wearing our pajamas all day and have friends and family over to celebrate. I can already imagine that Mila will be the star of the show this weekend.

It’s exciting to begin some new and old traditions with both of our families combined. I am eager to see our family traditions expand over the years to come!

LET THE FESTIVITIES BEGIN!
