Exploring New Tradition: Muffin Pants

Hello World!
It's been a while since I've been in blogland. Truly, my seasonal job took too much of my time. I extremely missed being involved in blogging world. It has been insanely busy at work with all the holiday shopping along with gift returns and exchanges at work, but at least I had that one day off to spend Christmas day with the family.
 
 Another home, another tradition. We immensely enjoyed exploring a new tradition. We spent our Christmas with a family who are very musical oriented and a great servants in the ministy. We lit advent candles, had scripture reading and sang hymns.




Hubby and I couldn't help but share our hidden talent.
 
 
...did I say, talent in lip sync.
It was a sweet sweet Christmas tradition at the De Garmo's. To start off , each one in the family made two kinds of cookies on Christmas eve. We had our share of Cranberry and Walnut Oatmeal cookies.

The sweet treat continued as we welcome Christmas morning with four kinds of freshly baked muffins.


which we consumed while still in muffin pants!


The men in their Christmas sports themed colors.
 
 
We all enjoyed opening our presents. It trully pays to know what your love one wants for Christmas.
To see how excited they are to get that simple wish is priceless.
 
 
A  small silly unexpected gifts becomes special because it brings a smile on their faces.
 
 
or just for laughs.
 
 
I thought this year, I'd give the girls something I personally handicrafted.
 
 
 Yes.. and Yoda was there too.
 
 
He loved all the attention!
 
 
We were so happy our grandma Emmy was with us this year. She flew all the way from MO to AZ!


I thought Christmas this year would be incomparable to what I am used to. But every home and every family has their own special way in making this special occasion memorable. I was glad they welcomed me to be a part of it.

 
 
What makes your Christmas tradition special?
