    Santa cookies, putting out the Magic Key for Santa and leaving the reindeer food outside.. She'll then go up to bed and G will read her "Twas The Night Before Christmas".. (It's their thing)...

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what I’ve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and that’s all I need

    A Christmas Movie and White Christmas on the tv. We either meet up with the in-laws or my folks depending on the year. We swap every year. Other than that, a few drinks, cuddles on the couch, do our Santa Claus thing and off to bed.

    Growing up christmas eve we would get to open one present once everybody was home, then we would go to my grandma on my dads side for their christmas (They celebrated it there on christmas eve) and then christmas day would be with my grandma on my moms side.

    Which reminds me, I forgot to open my christmas eve gift before I left my grandma's

    be cool.
