WWTK--5 things about Christmas

So this week's We Want To Know is more of a list than questions (Crazymama got a bit caught up in the season and didn't get questions asked, so therefore no answers can be made).  So here are the choices for lists of 5 things:
A.  What do you want for Christmas.
B.  What do you have to get done before the holiday?
C.  Your Christmas Traditions.
D.  5 favorite Christmas songs.

I think I'm going to go with C.  Christmas traditions.

  1. We make cookies on Christmas Eve day so we have fresh cookies to leave out for Santa.  Usually we make chocolate chip cookies, those go best with the Christmas milk (egg nog) that are left for Santa.
  2. We go cut our tree down in the forest as a family.  When Bruiser was a baby we didn't get this one done, but we did this year and it's nice to have a real tree again.
  3. We spend Christmas Eve at Nick's folk's house.  They make a good dinner and the kids get to open their presents and it takes the edge off the anticipation of Christmas.
  4. We check Santa's progress on Santa Tracker through the day Christmas Eve.
  5. We have all the grandparents over for Christmas breakfast together.  That way they get to see the kids open presents and spend time with out us having to make a big meal later.  This year we are going to go see a cousin of Nick's in the afternoon.  The kids will have fun playing and we always have a good time when we get together.
So those are some of the Christmas traditions we have, what are yours?
Go join up with the Lovely Mamarazzi (currently on bloggy break), Crazymama, and Queso.

Both sets of grandparents come over? Wow that would be great in my opinion. You have some wonderful traditions!

I hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas.

Those are great traditions! We bake treats, too-- hopefully I'll get some baking done before Christmas!

Love that you get to see both sets of grandparents and don't have to leave the house or go traipsing all over on christmas.

Hey there, I keep saying I'm going to do this WWTK thing, and this seems like a good week to start. How do I get the questions? I checked on Crazymama's website, but can't find any mention of it! Help!
