The memories of waking up super early Christmas morn and rushing to drag my parents out of bed knowing that everything was off limits until the video camera was ready and coffee was in each of their very tired hands. Though I love all those memories, you know one of my all time favorite traditions is emptying out my stocking! It always has been. Even since marrying Micah, my family has taught him how special stockings are and how many treasures can be hidden inside. I have even made it a rule that when we spend Christmas with his family that stockings being filled are a must! I don't care if it's last minute dollar tree treasures, those stockings must be filled with goodness come Christmas morn!
Micah and I have even decided that this year we aren't going to give gifts but just do stockings to each other (which technically is my favorite part, so it's a win/win for me)
I could go on and on about my favorite things at Christmas time but I have asked some of my lovely sponsors who are gracing my sidebar this month to share some of theirs as well! Such a treat for you guys! So sit back, turn on your holiday tunes while sipping your peppermint cocoa and enjoy what they all have to share!
And seriously peeps, these gals are awesome and if I were you I'd take some time to visit each of their blogs because they are some of my all time FAVE reads!
Hi My name is Ashlee. I'm a wife to Chris and mom to my 20 month old son, Luke. I consider myself a recovering perfectionist who is VERY thankful for God's amazing grace! My most favorite thing about this time of year is all of the traditions. I am your typical type-A personality so doing the same things the same way year after year always makes me extra happy. Whether it be baking the same yummy treats like my grandma's peanut brittle and fudge to the music we listen to while we decorate the tree, I'm a happy camper when things stay the same. Tradition is practically my love language!
