Soon all of these Christmas traditions will all come together as Christmas Eve is in just 12 more days! I am almost as excited to wake up Christmas Eve morning as I am to wake up on Christmas!

Christmas Eve we will probably sleep in, make a nice breakfast and head out to the mall to walk around and people watch (one of my favorite things to do). We’ll come home, wrap presents and make the Sour Cream Coffee Cake. For dinner, we will order Chinese and eat it while we watch a Christmas movie. We will exchange ornaments and put them on the tree while we enjoy dessert (something special thanks to Pinterest). Before bed, we will leave cookies, milk and reindeer food out for Santa, read The Night Before Christmas and put P to bed. Then Rob and I will fill the stockings, put the presents under the tree and relax by the fireplace. Eeekkkk, I am just bursting with excitement. I maybe 29 years old, but I still believe in the magic of Santa and the joy, gratitude, caring and mystical feelings it brings!

I hope you have enjoyed our 12 days of Christmas family traditions and check back after Christmas. I can’t wait to reveal our Christmas card, our handmade ornaments, and the Sour Cream Coffee Cake recipe and pictures.
