23. Favorite Christmas tradition? Fireplace, Lit up tree, Sparkling wine on Christmas eve…followed by us usually falling asleep before the boys do.
24. Up early or sleeping in? Early, early, early…I have yet to teach the boys my tradition of putting on the coffee and Christmas music before waking mom & dad.

26. Does Santa wrap your gifts? No…DUH! The ELVES do it!
27. Do you tell the Christmas story? Haven’t yet, but we will be this year.
28. Do you leave cookies for Santa? Yes, of course! But I think I really like Natalie’s tradition -( Of course! Cookies and milk! And a note. And Santa writes back. And we keep all the letters {along with our Christmas photo/letter from that year} in our “Nativity Box” so we can look back from year to year.)

Alrighty, then. Let’s hear all about Christmas at YOUR house. Tag. You’re it!
