Day 11 - 12 Days of Christmas!!

Hello Everyone!

Wow!  Only two more days until Christmas!  Where has the time gone?  There seems to be so many different things going on around here.  2010 was a wonderful year and I have all of you to thank for that!

Tonight we are having friends over for an early Christmas Eve.  Every year, since the year we were dating, we have had "Make Your Own Pizza" night on Christmas Eve and then acted out the Nativity.  This is a tradition from my hubby's side of the family.  Since we have been invited to another friend's house tomorrow we decided to go ahead and have our tradition tonight.  People will be arriving in about 2 hours so I need to hurry and start the dough.  Everyone gets to make their own pizza!  Doesn't that sound like fun?  I found my dough recipe this year from allrecipes.com and it is called Pizza Dough 1.

We also let the kids open up one present (which is always a pair of new jammies that they instantly change into for Christmas morning).  We will probably do that one tomorrow night when we return. 

Here are pictures of us from last year on Christmas Eve.  Do you all have any fun Christmas Eve traditions?


 This was the first year that we didn't have a real baby for the baby Jesus.  I normally have a bundle of joy that we use.  :)  It looks like it will be dolls until the grandbabies start to arrive.  Not too soon, though!  My oldest daughter is only 12!
 Daddy gets to be the donkey every year!  LOL!!  The kids love that.  Don't know how many more years he is going to be able to do that one.  :)
For today's giveaway the winner gets to pick ANY two My Pink Stamper items.  I have 17 stamp sets to choose from and 4 DVDs!  



Just leave a comment sharing a tradition your family has.  If you don't celebrate Christmas then please share one of your family's traditions.  :)

One favorite tradition is going to a family movie on Christmas day, after all the presents are opened and the hoopla has died down.

We would make a birthday cake for Jesus and also let the boys act out the Christmas story and then as they got older to read the story from the Bible.

That is a great tradition to share with your kids! Every year on Christmas eve we got to open one present. The rest we had to wait for Christmas. My husband and I still do that every year on Christmas eve.
Merry Christmas Robyn!!

Great fun and wonderful memories! Our family has many traditions like family devotions before any gifts can be unwrapped but a favorite is table gifts. Anyone who comes to Christmas dinner (even if you didn't come to unwrap gifts) receives one last gift after everyone is through eating!

Merry Christmas!!!

We have a Swedish Christmas Eve meal. We call it a White Christmas because everything we eat is WHITE! (or as close to white as possible!) Best tradition ever!

Kathy's-Krafts said...

We love to go to 6:00 mass and then watch Christmas shows until the boys have to go to bed, my hubby and I watch the tree for awhile then try to sleep before we are woken up at 6:00am.

mereshupe said...

We go to church for Carols, Candles and Communion every Christmas Eve. Christmas morning we all gather as a family and my Dad reads the Christmas story from the Bible before we open gifts. He has been doing that since I was a child....and I'm 32 now. It's cute to see my nephews enjoying the tradition too.

MERRY CHRISTMAS ROBYN!!

A great family tradition we all enjoy is to spend Christmas eve watching old movies from the years when my children were young. Now that they are all grown (gulp) and have families of their own, it is fun watching the grandkids laughing at mom and dad when they were so little...

Christine said...

Christmas Eve is my birthday! We always have a nice dinner, usually out, and then go to church where the nativity is acted out with live animals and all on the alter. Merry Christmas.

Nicole said...

We have a birthday cake for Jesus and sing Happy Birthday to Him. We also stay in our jammies all day and enjoy family time. We have our "big" dinner on Christmas Eve so we eat finger foods all day long.

Janajo said...

We have a couple. The one the kids love the most is getting up early Christmas morning and making the 2 1/2 hour drive to my Grandma's farm. We do our gifts Christmas Eve morning so that we can get up and head out by 8:00 Christmas morning. Another one of our favorites is the candlelight Christmas Eve service at our church. We also all enjoy driving around to see the Christmas lights.
Have a great Christmas!

What agreat tradition to act out the nativity. We leave the children's stocking outside thier doors and when they wake up early they can start to open them before everyone else gets up. I did like your idea of the 12 presants and letting them try to figure them out and hide them Christmas morning.

wolfescrappers said...

How Fun i love that nativity idea!! Our tradition is that our 2 kids get new pj's too and we all sleep in the living room near the tree (they are heavy sleepers so they dont hear us). when we wake up we read the Christmas story from the bible and thank God for sending the best gift ever. Then we open presents!!
Merry Christmas Cardon family!

Mindy said...

We have a Mexican buffet on Christmas eve, my mom and dad did this when my sister and I were kids. When I got married to a wonderful man with 4 kids I choose to make this our tradition also. Now over 21 years later the whole extened family shows up at our house christmas eve for food and fellowship. We also do the pj's even to this day my adult childern cant wait to open them. Have a Merry Christmas as we celebrate the birth of Christ. Mindy1qc@msn.com

Sabine said...

Being from a European background, on Xmas eve we actually get to celebrate xmas and open the gifts then. We have a simple dinner of german sausages and my moms fabulous potato salad, then open gifts. My hubby used to have a gingerbread man on xmas eve, so now he and the kids enjoy that tradition and get to have one shortly after opening the gifts. The kids are already very excited! Merry Christmas to u and your family Robyn!

That is sooo sweet Robyn! And I think your Hubby will be able to be the Donkey a little longer I'm sure... At least til the youngest is about 8! LOL Our tradition for Christmas is just to "HANG OUT".... Every year we spend Christmas Eve together watching Christmas movies and just being together before Midnight mass.... After mass it is off to bed sooo Santa can come! :o)

Louvenia said...

Great family tradition. Ours is to get together on christmas eve with my family and eat lots of food and open presents and then drive around and look at all the christmas lights.

Petra said...

We also go looking at Christmas lights on Christmas Eve. But the PJ's sound like a great idea :)

Susie said...

Usually love decorating the tree with my kids, this year we haven't done anything, we lost my mom and father in law and this christmas is so sad. We are spending the christmas with my mil and maybe make a new tradition.

Ashley @ Bride on a Budget said...

Our tradition is to always open up a present on Christmas eve.

Susan from SC said...

Our tradition is not having a traditional day for my nuclear family gift opening. My parents and inlaws have always wanted us to be at their respective homes on Christmas and Christmas Eve so my children have always just found a convenient day before Christmas Eve to celebrate. When my children were young they'd start campaigning to open the gifts as soon as school break began! Many people wouldn't like having a non-traditional gift opening time, but we've always enjoyed it.

Christie said...

we have pizza for Christmas Eve at my mother in law's house. And we all laugh about how terrible a tipper my father in law was before he passed away. Then we all over tip the pizza guy and share dinner. We miss Al dearly, but he still makes us smile...even from heaven.

Amanda said...

Great family tradition. Our family tradition is every Christmas Eve making cookies together for Santa the next morning. Then, on Christmas morning, having a nice, big breakfast as a family. We then, go spend Christmas afternoon with the aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. Lots of fun to be had!! :)

SpunkyOne said...

On Christmas Eve for a long as I can remember we Cook a Prime Rib, cut potatoes into Jojo's. Usually about an hour or two after everyone is done eating and everything is cleaned up we load into the biggest Van available, normally mine the Grand kids call it The Nana Bus, and we go look at lights. We have Christmas Tree Lane, Christmas Wreath Lane, Misfit Lane, Candy Cane Lane, ect. These are like 8 to 12 blocks that every house is decorated.

Merry Christmas

We have a "Christmas cow" that is a gag gift that get given to a different family member every year - of course disguised in a fancy package to make it look like it's something really special. When you are gifted with this lovely blue and white porcelain cow, you have to display in PROMINENTLY someplace in your living or dining room until you get to re-gift it to someone next year. It's always a good laugh when you get the dreaded cow. Any of the children above 12 are eligible to get it too. When I was a kid, my parents would always pick out a good Christmas movie that had just come out and we'd all go that night.

Megan said...

We always have a Christmas dinner, and my dad reads us the Christmas story from the bible. Then we open presents & play board games. This year, my husband and I bought Pictionary to play. We are pretty excied. :) (Even though it is an old game. haha)

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

My entire family on my mother's side usually get together on Christmas eve but this will be the first year we will both be missing it and that me, my husband and children will be celebrating just us. We are stationed in Germany here with no family so this year we have started new traditions. For tomorrow one thing I am looking for is making cookies for Santa with my daughter. Merry Christmas

Linda S said...

On Christmas Eve we have a carol sing around the piano then go to church. My Dad used to read The Night Before Christmas to my daughter. Now that he has passed, she reads it to the rest of us. Wonderful memories!

We celebrate my parents house with a Birthday cake for dad since it is his birthday. (Dad passed this year though). Then we come home have a birthday cake for baby jesus and then open a present. Yes Christmas jammies. Even though my youngest is 19, they still all want to know where there christmas jammies are. This year I had 10 pairs to buy!

Every year my kids get a new ornament for the tree. Since we've only had 3 Christmas's with children next year is the first year they will have enough decorations for their own tree. I'm going to buy them a cute little pink tree to decorate next year, since I have two little princesses... :)

Norma said...

love your christmas eve tradition! that's a good looking donkey you have there!! My boys are all grown and only 1 lives close by so we don't get to do much together anymore but when they were younger we would always have Christmas eve buffet. They brought girlfriends when they were older, family that could travel would come. It was always such a fun time to gather and lots of good food. Christmas morning was ALWAYS to grandparents house after opening gifts and about 50 family members would all gather for a wonderful meal and presents.

We always do the christmas story Christmas morning, but for Christmas eve we enjoy driving around and looking at Christmas lights.

Our holiday begins with mass at 4:00. Then we go to grandma's house where Santa has visited early. We share a warm night with family and get straight home to get ready for Santa's visit at our house. All five of us wear our hristmas jammies Christmas morning. This is my favorite time of the year, because I adore this special time spent with my three boys and husband! Merry Christmas!

Katie said...

We give a new ornament to each child for a symbol of the year to put on the tree. They look forward to see what we choose to 'represent' that year!

craftycards4u2 said...

We had the same tradition until my children grew up, now they do it with their children. As grandparents the grandchildren come the week-end before Christmas and we bake cookies, pumpkin bread, bark, and freezer jam. We make some kind of ornament, and gift. Then it all gets wrapped for special presents from them to their parents. Been doing this for 16 years so far, and love it. Merry Christmas Pam

Katie said...

We all get new pajamas too! Then Christmas morning we put on our santa hats and put a breakfast casserole in the oven to bake, while the kids open their presents from Santa. When they finish opening their presents, we all sit down to our Christmas breakfast.

Damaris said...

Such a great tradition!! I think once our newborn is old enough (next year) I'd like to start a tradition like that!! Every year since we've been married (4yrs) we watch "ELF" on Christmas Eve, open gifts at midnight and then watch "A Christmas Story" on Christmas day. Thanks for the chance to win great prizes.

2 More Days!!!!

Merry Christmas Everyone & Good Luck!!

JenBenLola said...

We don't really have many christmas traditions that we still do since we've grown and moved out... but growing up my parents had a large stocking, you could fit an adult in side and my parents would fill it up for gifts for all of us (Instead of individual small stockings)... It'd take alot of things but after we opened all our big gifts we'd go to our stocking... It would take hours to go through but we loved it. Not sure why we loved it at a young age because most of it was stuff we'd need throughout the year (ie, toothbrush, floss, hair brush, ties, etc.) But it was the highlight of our christmas morning and made the morning long instead of quick! :) JenBrierley2 at gmail dot com

EricaQ said...

Our Christmas tradition is a couple of things. But movie on Christmas day with everyone. But on Christmas eve we get together and have dinner.

My favorite family Christmas tradition is one that started when I was little. My dad always read Twas the Night Before Christmas to my brother and I. Now that my DH and have a 3 year old daughter, he reads the story to her. He wanted to know why I didn't read it, since it's my family tradition. But I told him the Daddy has to read it!

Tradition...we have a few but I think the newest tradition to our Christmas celebrating is preparing our church for their annual Dessert Theatre. This was our 3rd year to hold it. It takes many hands to complete but the Gospel message is presented to the community and that makes it all worthwhile. Our family is honored to help with it.

We make pizzelles on Christmas Eve. They're super tasty Itallian wafer cookies and we use my husband's great grandmother's recipe.

Anonymous said...

We didn't have many traditions when I was growing up for Christmas other than having my father's family over for Christmas dinner. That ended when they split up and Christmas became a big stressfull day. When we had our son (Dec 19th) 2 years ago we decided we would change things a little to make it less stressfull and appreciate our new family more and start our own traditions. We open one gift Christmas Eve (also PJS) and then we get up on Christmas morning and open presents and then have pancakes. After that it is off to both families (my dad passed away 3 years ago so we don't go to his family anymore) an have 2 different big meals. This year my MIL passed away so we will only be going to my mother's house. It will be a relief to slow down and appreciate the season and set some traditions with our son.
Thanks for the chance to win and have a very Merry Christmas with your lovely family.

My husband has a son from a previous relationship so he usually gets to spend christmas day with his mom and her family. So every year we have started celebrating "our christmas" the day AFTER christmas! We still wake up and have lots of presents and the whole shebang! The last few years we were lucky and santa left a note explaining that he noticed our son wasn't home christmas eve so he would make a stop at our house on the way back to the north pole on christmas night! He always loves it!!!

My favorite tradtion on Christmas Eve is getting together with my in-laws for Tamales and Tortilla Soup and trying to get the kids to wait until midnight to open presents... btw, it never works.

As a child we would be in FL. Where my Grandparents and ALL my Grandpa's siblings go for the winter. They also live in the same town during the summer months on the 30 acres. Then we too got to open one present which became our Christmas jammies. Now that I am a Mommy I spend Christmas Eve at my Mother In-laws. We see my sis in-law in a Christmas play at church and then have Chili and open presents.

We usually decorate a gingerbread house. But this year I found a gingerbread village (with 5 smaller houses), and it was just perfect, everyone got to decorate their own little house.

We don't really have a Christmas Eve tradition; however, we have a special dessert on Christmas night. We make Ice Cream snowballs with vanilla ice cream, roll them in white or colored coconut (some are left plain for those of us who don't like coconut), then place a birthday candle in each one and freeze until after dinner. (we usually make these a day ahead) We then serve everyone a snowball, light the candles, turn out all the lights and sing Silent Night and then Happy birthday to Jesus. We then eat the snowball until the candle light goes out and then turn the lights back on. It feels like Christmas when there's 30+ candles lit and everyone is singing together.

Our tradition since our kids are older now are to open gifts on Christmas Eve, they are 17 and 19 and can barley wait that long. On Christmas day we always have a big dinner with our family. My whole family nieces, nephews, sister-in-laws, etc. This has alwas been a tradition in my family to have a big dinner with our extended family on Christmas day. God bless you all at this very special time of year.

My Parents always have an Open house on Christmas eve, which really hasn't been the same since my Dad passed away (this will be the 2nd Christmas with out him)then we all go home around mid-night or later put our cookies out for Santa and wake up Christmas morning, have Christmas with our families, then we head out for the rest of the families, my Aunt and Nana, My Mom's then the In-Laws

Victoria said...

We have a very strict schedule for Christmas. On Christmas eve we go look at lights. On Christmas morning we open stockings and then Santa's present, youngest to oldest. Then we have breakfast, which is usually coffee cake. Then it is the rest of the presents one at a time taking turns, and once again youngest to oldest. Then time to play and a family dinner. Usually after dinner we play a board game. Always fun! Merry Christmas!

This year, we had to cancel our Christmas Eve traditional "open house" dinner and game night due to weather and illness. So, I will be home tomorrow night all by myself for the first time in 46 years (my whole lifetime!). We hope to not get snowed in on Christmas Day! If we do, our backup plan is Sunday. We all gather for a luscious pitch-in meal, eat, and then we open all of our presents, one-at-a-time. Then dessert. Then, we all pack up, load up and go home. I have a small family and we all live very close to one another. Its great! I am very blessed. Thank you, Robyn, for all that you bring to your family and to all of us, your extended family!

We go to church on Christmas eve, then open a gift when we get home - new pjs for everyone to wear to bed!! Then on Christmas morning, I wake up early and get breakfast casserole going and we open gifts while its cooking then eat after gifts are done. The rest of the day we hang out and enjoy each other while the kids play - its our day to shut the world out and celebrate Jesus' birth and our family!

We have a Happy Birthday Jesus party every year on Christmas Eve Day (Christmas Day is too busy! for it.) Appetizer type foods and birthday cake.

Fosburgh Family said...

That is soooo crazy in my family since I can remember we make pizzas on christmas eve then act out the nativity and then we all get to open one present. Earlier in the year we draw names an we have to make that person a gift and that is the gift we get to open on christmas eve.

Colleen said...

Traditions seem to have fallen by the wayside in our family as we now move things around and do whatever it takes to keep one sort of new family member happy.

Our family reads the Christmas story form the Bible and then open presents.

Robyn,
Love your traditions with your family. We use to open present on Christmas Eve. Santa came on Christmas morning. That way everyone can rest (Cook) most of the day on Christmas. Kids have a hard time waiting on the gifts. Since my birthday is close to Christmas Mom would let me open something little every day up till Christmas. Thanks for the giveaways and all your do for us.
"Merry Christmas & Happy New Year" to you and your family..............

As many of my family members gather every Christmas Eve,some of us attend a 4pm "Family Mass" and others stay up for Midnight Mass but we meet @ 7pm and do the Navitity Story by song, in spanish! It's called a Posada. MOST people gather outside the home and knock on 3 different doors, the 3rd allowing us in. We usually have the children take turns playing Joseph & Mary. Not all of us know the songs very well but those that do make up for it.

We get together on Christmas Eve as a family opening gifts from each other, having a big dinner & just enjoy spending time together. Christmas day is quieter and we all stay in our own homes. This way everyone can relax and enjoy the day.

We watch fun Christmas movies while wrapping presents on Christmas Eve, then spend a quiet day at home with the kids on Christmas.

Sounds like you guys have lots of fun - and great memories-in-the-making! My husband is a pastor, so we always have Christmas Eve services at our church. We take the Lord's Supper and also have a special time of baptism - what an awesome Christmas present for that person and their family! We usually open 1 present that night, then open the rest on Christmas morning. Our boys are grown, but not married, so no grandkids. Our niece lives by us, so she and her family are coming to spend Christmas evening with us - and she has a 5-year-old boy and a 6-month-old baby girl. Having the little kids sure make Christmas fun, don't you think?!

Merry Christmas to you and your family. Thanks for all you do! You're awesome!

khd said...

Looks like fun Robyn! One of the traditions that my husband and I do every year is fill stockings for each other. But because I'm so nosy (and so is he!) we wrap up the stocking presents. It's usually small stuff and hard to wrap, but it's a lot of fun. :) Can't wait until we have children so we can make stockings for them. When I was younger we didn't do stockings, but I wish we had!

Hi,
Our christmas tradition is to play bingo(the mexican version) a few times and the winners get latto tickets insted of money. When we run out of tickets we draw numbers from a hat and open one gift, one person at a time in number order. That wat everyone can see the reaction of the person opening there gift, and also see what they got. It's a lot of fun and it also takes us a long time opening gifts in that way.

Happy Holidays

The family get together every Christmas like most and we really enjoy everyones company. After a few goodies to munch on while the turkey is still in the oven we gather the children around and my son (now with a son of his own) reads the precious story of the birth of Christ from the bible. The first Christmas ever, then we/he explains to the children that that is why we give gifts to each other to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Well after the story and any questions we exchange gifts and then go on with dinner. We just have a wonderful time together.
May I wish you and your entire family a BLESSED CHRISTMAS filled with love, joy and peace. God bless you!

My family has stretched Christmas out to four days of traditions. One of my favorite is Christmas Eve Eve we always watch "Its a Wonderful Life" and make Chicken Enchilada Soup.

My "kids" are 19 and 21. We still do the Christmas pj thing. On Christmas morning we open gifts and then have cherry ring (my mom started that) and later in the day we play games. Relaxing:)

My favorite tradition is the read The Night Before Christmas to my children. We usually sip egg nog during the story.
Merry Christmas to you and your family.

We have our big Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve so I can enjoy the kids and not have to jump straight from presents to cooking. We started when my kids were small and it's worked out very well. On Christmas Day, we have cheese and crackers and leftover meat for sandwiches so it's self-serve!

Cyd said...

Every year we have a huge family get together the weekend before Christmas. That way everyone is free to celebrate in their own way on Christmas day. With such a large extended family many have in laws to see or exes to send their children to, so it takes the pressure off. We have lots of food and we spend time catching up. I have party favors for everyone and gifts for the young great-nieces and great-nephews we have. My mother gives everyone family bags of small gifts she has gathered including her home made beef jerky and other favorites. It is a fun day. May you and your family have a joyous day!

Our family tradition is at our home. We have scented candles burning and Christmas/Christian music playing all the days surrounding. The kids are at hone for a little over a week and we try to avoid the tv as much as possible. I must say it's easiest to avoid the tube the first part of the week rather than the later! On Christmas Eve everyone opens one gift then bundle up and head for the 11pm service at church! We are all excited when we return home, the kids anxiously prepare for bed with visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads! My husband and I set the alarm for 2 or 3 am to set up the gifts from Santa! This process can take as long as 2 hours! We both pretend we are enjoying it! The anticipation of the next morning is how I want to live everyday with the anticipation of the 2nd coming of our Lord! Thanks for all you do! You are touching many lives with your gifts of creativity! Merry Christmas to you and your family, Pat

Oooo! We have so many fun Christmas traditions! Something that came from my family is letting the kids open presents on Christmas Eve, since Christmas day is usually busy getting ready to head to whoever's house we are going to that year. I also love going to our church's Christmas Eve Candlelight service every year! Great memories, and the kids love getting to stay up late! Merry Christmas!

we open our Christmas stocking stuffer gifts on Christmas morning, but we open all our gifts on Christmas night.

We like to bake Cinnamon Rolls and give them to the neighbors. We also unwrap PJs on Christmas Eve so they have new jammies to sleep in.

When the children go to bed I sprinkle glitter from their bedrooms to the Christmas tree. It shows the trail that Santa took while he was checking on them during the night... My sister thinks it too messy but my kids think it is awesome when they wake up...

My siblings are grown with children/grandchildren of their own. We have Christmas in our own homes, then congregate at my 84 yr. old Mom's house for more gifts. Then back to my house for dinner--sometimes as late as 6 or 7
All Mom's children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren from Calif. to Mass. will be here. FUN!!

Gosh this year is going to be so different from the last almost 40 yrs for my family.

Our Christmas tradition I guess has mostly centered around getting to all our extended families. We live close enough we could see my dad's parents and then we would stop at my parent's home on Christmas Eve. Christmas morning with our 6 children then get ready to see my mom's parents and then head to my husband's parents home. We would do 5 get togethers in less than 24 hours, it was exhausting but now that the grandparents are gone and my kids are mostly adults I am glad I was able to give them those memories.
