I've been thinking about some of my favorite Christmas memories today.. If any of you know my mother, then you'd know Christmas is a pretty big deal at our house so i've got memories and traditions galore. Here are some of my favs;
  • Waking up in the morning in CA to find a piece of Santa's suit stuck in the fireplace and huge white foot prints on the tile.
  • Staying up late on Christmas Eve while my sisters sleep and read Christmas books.
  • The drama of taking picture after lining up on the stair youngest to oldest Christmas morning. "Who's breathing their morning breath on me", "I look ugly", "so-and-so'd feet are touching me".
  • Mom and Dad stalling Christmas morning by taking pictures, turning on the music and the setting up of the video camera.
  • Getting a cell phone Junior year and crying my eyes out. Dad found one last present behind the tree afer we were done and it was my first phone.  
  • Laying under the Christmas tree after its all decorated.
  • One year we delivered gifts to a needy family, I don't remember much about that night cause I was young, but I remember being freezing, running away quickly, and loving the feeling afterwards.
  • Watching all the Christmas claymation movies.
  • Dancing to Lady Gaga all Christmas day at my dads last year.
  • Being so proud of my moms decorations and lights.
I've got so many happy memories of Christmas and so many good feelings when I think about it. I hope there are many more to come!
