Day One: Christmas Traditions

Today is the first day of the 12 Days of Christmas challenge with Aly & Molly!
Go link up!

Every year on Christmas Eve, my second family (the boyfriend's family) has a party. Even though I have only been dating the boyfriend for almost a year, I have attended the party before this year because I have been friends with his family for a long time. The party consists of lots of yummy food and then everyone has to sit on Santa's lap to open one gift. It's a lot of fun and I am so excited for this year.

Last year's party...

I stole these pictures from my boyfriend's mom :)

My family has a tradition that we open all our Christmas presents on Christmas Eve at midnight because that's when Santa has delivered all of them. Last year we didn't do this because everyone was too tired to stay up but we better enforce it this year!

Here are some pics from last year...

I can't wait for Christmas to be here! Have a wonderful Monday everyone!
