  2. One of our favorite holiday traditions is going for a drive on Christmas Eve in our PJ's to look at Christmas lights :-)


  3. Mine is a combo of what Nicole and Marie said... we go Christmas light looking in our pjs and listen to Christmas music. Then we go back to my parents' house for hot chocolate and cookies. Our family is getting so big that soon we are going to have to rent a 15 passenger van so we can all go in the same vehicle! :o)
