santahat Our Christmas/Traditions

I don't know if I'll remember everything for one post or
We get our tree the weekend after the US Thanksgiving.
Besides the regular going shopping, wrapping gifts, listening to Christmas songs etc.
We take a drive to see lights sometime in the week prior to Christmas.
Each of the kids have a Christmas elf. About a week before Christmas they leave them a little reminder note (to be good, comments on what they've done) and on Christmas eve leaves them a new pair of pj's for them to wear to bed.

On Christmas eve, we go to dh's Mom's. She opens her gifts on Christmas eve. Then we go to my Mom's. In Christmas' past, Santa stopped in to give a chocolate bar and list to the kids' wish list. Last year my husband bought a Santa suit and "signed up" as one of Santa's helpers.

We come home and the kids race into the house to find their pj's.
They put out reindeer food on the lawn, put cookies and milk out for Santa, carrots out for rudolph. They get to open a pre-picked present. We watch a movie til bedtime.

Santa comes, we open gifts. Grandma calls to see when we are going out.
Mid morning we head for my parents house and pretty much spend the day there. Families take turns dropping in and exchanging gifts. We have supper mid afternoon.

We then head for home to finish cleaning up the boxes and paper, let the kids check out the toys while we try to figure out how to get them out of the boxes!

I also write letters from Santa, so they get those about the second week of Dec.
