TI have a few. The first one I don't do anymore, but it was my favorite when I was little. I would sleep in my brother's room on Christmas Eve. Little did I know that it was because they didn't want me to go down stair before they were ready. One that we do know that we are married is go cut down our own Christmas tree with my in-laws.It is such a long drive and we get lost every year (due to my brother in law). But when we get there and cut it down, make the journey home and put it up. I know that it is Christmas. One other one, that we won't be doing this year due to schedule and funds, is going to Voicemales Christmas concert. I have gone every year except one in the last 5 years. Now it will be two but that is ok. I love their music and the spirit that they have. Plus it is a lot of fun.

We open New jam jam's Christmas eve so we wake up kinda cute. Steven and I also try to go to temple square after it has snowed (fresh) so the lights glow. We also spoil each other silly. My mother-in-law has a Christmas cookie exchange where we all make a batch of cookies for our cookie jar we made last year. My moms side of the fam does our Christmas party the day after Christmas.

My family does dollar gift shopping. It started way back in the day when there were six kids at home and we didn't have a lot of money. My mom wanted to teach us that it doesn't take a lot of money to buy someone a nice gift. So every Christmas Eve we pick names and go to Walmart. We can't spend over $1. It's so much fun to try and find clever things that cheap. I absolutely love it. Christmas morning my mom makes egg mcmuffins. Delicious! That's pretty much it. We stay in our jammies all day long, watch movies, and nap. Now I am super excited for next week :)
