Lights, Eggnog, Action!

Growing up my family held religiously to our Christmas traditions. One was putting up the decorations the day after Thanksgiving and enjoying the lights with cookies & eggnog. Since we spent all day after Thanksgiving driving, we put our tree up the very next day after that. Abraham was SO fun this year. He loved looking at the ornaments & was so fascinted with the lights. Tyler was content to sit & enjoy the commotion.

Last year, Ken's sister Carie sent us this beautiful wooden Nativity. We've been so excited to put it out this year. Abraham loves it. The first night we got it out we sat with him and helped him learn the names of all the characters. The next day he was naming them all and he saved the 3 Wise Men for last. As he got to them, he got a look of concentration on his face and finally said, "them other guys", what a cute boy!

You've got to catch a boy's first taste of eggnog (mixed with Sprite) on video!

So cute. Ashton loved the eggnog too. He went around after everyone was done and finished off the drips in everyone's cup.

Eggnog is the best thing about Christmas...well, except presents. Camille's family is big into mixing it with Sprite, but I had never heard of it until her family had done it. Maybe it is a worldwide trend.

I love your wooden nativity! I need to get a kid friendly kind because my kids want to touch my nice one!

I've never heard of mixing eggnog with sprite. Sounds odd...

We waited a whole week +1 day to put up our tree this year (Peter was out of town Mon-Fri so we had to wait). But we definitely did the eggnog/cookie thing when we were done! And I love them other guys. At least he knew the most important players in that night!
