you two definitely have a resemblance!
we will be getting a tree this weekend. i LOVE christmas decorations. i think i have 7 boxes now but maybe this year i'll pare down the **** i'm not using.
on christmas eve we pick one present to open. i will try to convince the family we need to go to church. sometimes they oblige. we haven't been at all any other time this year but i feel some urge to expose them to more than the consumer aspects.
christmas morning we wake up early and look at stockings and see what santa brought. i usually make some night-before breakfast thing that i can stick in the oven (sticky buns or chili cheese egg souffle). we don't let anyone go too crazy til we've had some coffee. open presents. call our parents & sisters. play with toys.
we usually have ham for christmas dinner in the interest of making something very easy. no turkey for us because we just had one in november. one year i made roast beef and yorkshire pud. mmmm. christmas dinner
it's usually just the 4 of us.
this weekend we are riding this train
with santa. it'll be our first time.
