What you wanted for Christmas, just didn't know it!

My mom has always been good about carrying on traditions......things we looked forward to as kids and still as adults! 1 of those traditions she's carried over with our girls! Every year we come home {sometime during the beginning of December} to find packages sitting at our doorstep! We all squeal {even me!} with excitement to see what's tucked into those boxes!
The excitement begins to burst
as they tear open the packages
to find cards
and cuteness {don't you just want to kiss him?!!!}
mugs with hot coco and a chocolate bar
new soft snuggly blankets made by Aumie with names monogramed in the corner
and "The Night Before Christmas" with a recording of Aumie reading it to them!
A special treat from a special Aumie! Traditions.....I've said it before and you know I'll say a millions times more....WE LOVE THEM!

I love that Hallmark commercial where the 2 little girls are listening to their book from their Grandma.....Every time I see it, I wish I had enough money to do one for all the kiddo's in my life :) I'm sure Kayd & Em just loved it!
