Simplifying Christmas Day 4~ Share a Favorite Christmas Memory

I have a couple of favorite memories about Christmas. The first one is that every Christmas Eve we would all stay up till midnight and open one gift. We also opened the gift from youngest to oldest, so I always went first:) As a child I thought that was great since I was the baby of the family:)
My other Christmas memory was after we had opened all of our presents at home we would go over to my Grandparents house. Nana (Grandma:) and Popop (Grandpa:) always had something special for us and I loved being with them. I praise the Lord that I was able to have a great relationship with my Grandparents, and I am looking forward to being with them in Heaven one day!!!
Now that I am older I try very hard to make sure my children have a relationship with their Grandparents and they are even blessed to have Great Grandparents form my husbands family.
All of the to say my Favorite thing about Christmas is that we get to spend time with family:)

(Giggles) The youngest opening first. I would be the one to get that too. I was always the youngest in our family. I was the last Grandchild on both sides.

But our family did nothing like that.
