Along Abbey Road | A Lifestyle And Family Blog : A California Christmas Eve


A California Christmas Eve

Oh by golly was Christmas Eve with the Nugget the perfect prelude to Christmas day. Now I know what all the moms singing praises to the joy of sharing Christmas with their kids is all about. Our little family of three created traditions and built the foundation for the Rodriguez clan Christmas festivities.

First check off the ole' tradition list: Chicago style pizza and sparkling cider for Christmas Eve dinner. Mmmm, mmm finger-lickin' good (although I opted for the gluten-free Udi's pizza from Whole Foods... I highly recommend it).

Second tradition: opening our yearly ornament. This is a tradition carried down from Matt's side of the family. We thought it would be absolutely darling (which it was, of course) to make each kid's first ornament with their hand print. Apparently Luke has monster hands because it almost didn't fit in the star cut out that came with the ornament kit. That, and he figured the best way to open a gift is with your mouth. Obviously.

Third tradition: taking a stroll on the beach. I hope we get to the fortune of living near a beach town for a long while (or spending it near the beach if we move away). Bundling up and watching other people scribble "Merry Christmas" in the sand is the cherry on top of a happy Christmas.
