Christmas Question #8 & CW
Wow, just under a week of these left. Have you created any Christmas traditions with your own family and if so what is it? We have a few. I have tried to create a tradition of doing something on Christmas Eve but that always falls flat due to people working different hours. One tradition we have kept going is my mums birthday. Her birthday is on Christmas day. Before we exchange Christmas gifts my mum has her birthday. We all give her her birthday presents and wish her a happy birthday. I know a few people who has their birthdays that day too and it gets pushed aside because it is on Christmas day. So we try to make the day feel that little bit extra special. Plus we always get her a birthday cake despite all the mountains of food. Christmas would actually feel a little strange without it now.
I finished with the metallic gold on the swirls of CW dress. And I have made a start on the gold trim. If I keep this up I will definitely reach my goal of finishing the trim for Christmas. Finishing the metallic gold though really makes a difference. I like the way it looks (although it shines more brightly in real life than it does in the photo).
And the point is to impede the dog from eating it all, leave traces of Santa's coming... This is the 1st thing they check on 25th, even before the gifts!
I love the tradition that you have established with your mom's birthday... I don't think I would like being born on that day... So it's very important that you separate the two events!
CW is turning real great! She is so elegant! What's left to do?
our tradition is to open one present at midnight on christmas eve - we're always up so late on that evening wrapping presents its nice to have something to cheer us up.
