Merry 5th Day of Christmas Week

"The way you spend Christmas is far more important than how much." Henry David Thoreau

It's sadly amusing to sit back and remember about Christmas. It's sad because I have always thought that our family somehow was missing something because we didn't have strong traditions and ceremony. It's amusing because, now that someone is missing, I realize too late that we do have those established practices and now they all change.

Our Top 10 Traditions, A Listography
10. The hubster and darling daughter brought us the Christmas Eve delivery from the Pajama Elf.
  9. I make some sort of Christmas ornament for everyone (this year it's painted by hand).
  8. Gayla and the men go fishing while Mama and I take Darbster to the movies.
  7. Dana Sister brought us the Christmas Eve breakfast for dinner.
  6. Hubby Dearest buys me bubble wrap as a gift because everyone becomes a kid around BW!
  5. Gayla, Bubba and I pitch in to buy big gifts for Mama and Daddy.
  4. We drive around the ritzy neighborhoods looking at Christmas lights.
  3. Gayla receives something to keep her warm; Chad gets something for fishing; Darby receives something from A&M; I get a penguin something; Dana recieves something turtle-ish; Daddy gets something with bumble bees; and Mama gets jewelry or electronics we spend the rest of the year helping her use (:-).
  2. We raid the dollar tree and the $1 aisles for stocking stuffers.
  1. We have a fish fry for Christmas dinner.
