Why I just love the holidays...

So many of my favorite parts of the holidays have to do with traditions. I love going to the Christmas eve service at church with my family and singing hymns by candlelight. I love my old traditions with my family of eating blueberry muffins and running past the present room before going in for a sneak peek. And I have loved making new traditions with Drew the past 4 years. Here is our day of 3 Christmases in pictures...
Drew and I wake up and start cooking a big breakfast. When it goes in the oven we go down and start a fire and open our stockings in front of the fireplace. This is the second year in a row we have bought each other the same movie to put in the other one's stocking, Madagascar 3 anyone? Then we let our cats "open" their gifts and are entertained while they play with them. Then we go back upstairs and eat while watching Mickey's Christmas Carol. Then we load up our gifts and head to my parents house...
More stockings, blueberry muffins, happy doggies and lots of family time. Then it's on to my grandma's house for lunch.
We opened another round of stockings, exchanged gifts and stuffed ourselves with honey baked ham. After a big lunch we put on a Christmas movie and bust out the games. This year it was our Lord of the Rings Monopoly. When our stomach's start growling again we know it's time to head to Drew's parents for dinner and more presents.
And our last stop is Drew's parents house. We always get PJ's and  have a very big and tasty dinner followed by presents, Uno Attack and Christmas Story. The night always ends with me falling asleep on their couch.

And one last picture because it's not a Renner holiday without pet pictures...
I hope you had a very merry Christmas! Looking forward to reading all about all your holiday fun!
