Family Traditions

What are your family's Christmas traditions?

We are a relatively "new" we are just starting our family traditions, but here are ours ;o).

On Christmas Eve we attend the Christmas service at our church at 10 pm...with the little ones outfitted in their new jammies. Here is Jackson in his new jammies, I didn't even think of taking a picture on Christmas Eve...but here is my little one on Christmas morning.
And here is Ady's can't see them very well, but what can you do? Do you like the hat? It's from Etzy!
We also exchange ornaments each year. Mommy and Daddy buy for each of the little ones and each other. We added a Chicago Bears (why Z likes them is beyond me...they are a horrible team, lol. Sorry if you are a Bears fan =D), Handy Manny, a cooking reindeer, a sweet pea, and a J and an M ornaments.

Here are my wonderful Christmas presents! Aren't they cute?

But actually here is one of my favorite Christmas presents....Reebok EasyTone shoes. Thanks honey! He swears that it wasn't his way of telling me I need to lose weight ;o).

Here is Jackers right away on Christmas morning. Could he be more excited?
After all the Christmas festivities what do we do? Play with toys of course! ;o)

And this is what my house looks like when we are ALL done. Messy, eh?

I would love to hear about how your Christmas went....and your holiday traditions! And if you have any ideas for my little family please let me know! I hope you had a great Christmas.


  1. Hi Jen, your kids are just cute as can be! I noticed on the blog frog forum (mckmama's) that you are from Iowa like me so I clicked on over to check out your blog. Looks like you guys had a fun Christmas! Merry Christmas and Happy New year! :)

  2. Thank you! I noticed that too, and checked out your blog....hehe. I am still reading through and haven't had the chance to comment, but I am enjoying reading your posts. What part of Iowa are you from? I am from the Quad Cities area...near the Illinois border. If it is easier just e-mail me @ ;o)

  3. Your kiddos are SUPER cute! Love your daughter's hat - those pom-poms are perfect.

    My hubby's from the Quad Cities too - grew up literally right next door to Davenport West High. :)

    Glad you had a fabulous Christmas!

  4. Thank you!

    Really? We live just north of the Quad Cities (that's the nearest, big town)....but we have to go there for all our shopping, etc. So we are very familiar with the area.

  5. We live in the Waterloo area. :)
