My favorite holiday memory is from Christmas 2 years ago. Tim and I surprised my mom, dad, brother, and sister-in-law by opening our gifts on Christmas Eve in adult onesie PJs!! It is now a tradition that we sit around in our onesie PJs and have our little family Christmas on Christmas Eve!!

Favorite Christmas Memory is our annual snow skiing trip. We would drive 16 hours to Red River, NM to meet family. We would leave Christmas day and ski up until New Year. It was a wonderful time! Now we are all grown and have jobs that would laugh if we took that much time off. :)

My favorite holiday memory is the one my mom did every year when we were kids (and until the last Christmas eve we slept at home). After my sister and I had gone to bed she would put our stockings together and put them at the foot of our beds. In the morning she would always say, "look, Santa wanted to come up and say 'hi' but he didn't want to wake you so he left your stocking by your bed." We always thought it was so cool that Santa came to check on us, and it was just something my mom continued to do even after we stopped believing in Santa. Years later she confessed that by doing that she also did it to give her a few extra minutes of sleep to have us go through our stockings and play with the little toys there before coming to wake her up to go check out the tree. It's a tradition that I will carry on now that I have a child.

My favorite memory was one year we had an absurd amount of boxes and presents under the tree and my 80-something year old grandfather, who was a man of very words, came up to me and said "That's alotsa damn presents under that tree. Take my picture." And he went and got down right in the middle of all of them and I took his picture. Then, a few months later, he passed away. But I still have his picture in the middle of all those presents. :)

My favorite holiday memory was actually the first year my husband & I played Santa. I was hoping to be up all night putting together toys but since she was only 9 months old we were done within an hour. This year is sure to be another favorite since we've added a baby brother!

My favorite happened just last year. My son (4 at the time) only wanted a red 4 wheeler for Christmas. We had warned him that if he woke up first he couldn't open presents but had to come get us. The path from his room to our room takes him right by the tree. I can still hear his feet running on the hardwood stopping at the tree and then SPRINT to our room to wake his sister and us up. He couldn't believe that Santa had actually brought it. He sat on it the whole morning and wouldn't get off of it. He even opened more presents and ate breakfast on it :-)

Elain ann - I have a lot of great Christmas memories, but I think my favorite are just those from my childhood. That magical feeling of waking up at the crack down, sitting on the couch with my little brother, guessing what was under the tree from Santa.

One of my faves is when daughter Leigh was 6 or so. Hubby and I were putting together her new bike downstairs. We looked up and she was on the stairs watching us. We told her we were putting it together for the little neighbor girl. I think she believed us!
