Our traditions are probably like yours:
I made an advent string of envelopes that Maebelle loved opening every morning leading up to Jesus' birthday.
We have always gone shopping for our dogs on Christmas eve. We buy them each a small yummy treat and new toy. It was fun having Mae's help to pick out something for her buddy.

We have always had family over for Christmas Eve dinner and this year we decided to have a birthday cake for Jesus. We've heard of many other people doing this and it seemed perfect. Mae loves blowing out candles too.
Mae got to open one gift (of Christmas pajamas). This way she got a little practice and cute new pjs to wear.
We had a hard time getting her to open any presents, she was much too busy cooking. My mom and dad came over for breakfast and we left to go to their house for a whole other Christmas (:

Mae got more food and pots and pans for her kitchen.

As, you can see everyone enjoyed a ride and Mae loves having a companion!!!
Mae makes everyone a kid again (:
|My sweet grandee, sister, Mae and me. All his girls.|
We are so blessed by this family and the sweetness of our darling girl this year. We love this season of celebration and look forward to a new year. Happy 2012 friends!!
