"Tis the Season... be Jolly..." -- you know the song. Don't you just LOVE this time of year? I do. I find myself thinking of Christmases a child going to my grandmother's house (Mom's mom -- "Mama" or most recently, "Big Grandma" on Christmas Eve for her AWESOME shrimp gumbo (& she also had fried oysters but I REFUSE to eat those); and then we'd open gifts that Santa had left us at her house early. Then, on Christmas morning, my sister and I would awake and find MORE presents under the tree at our house. It was SOOO much fun! One of my favorite toys one year was a Remote Controlled Airplane...of course, I think Daddy enjoyed it just a weeeee bit more than I did -- being he's a cropduster pilot and all! LOL Another year, it was my brand new 10-speed bike. I LOVED IT! All of my grandparents would come to our house for lunch. It was fun. I so love spending time with my grandparents. The day after Christmas we would end up at my other grandparents' house (Daddy's parents -- Granny & Pops) and have Christmas with them and my cousins once they arrived from Sabinal. I miss the days of didn't seem as rushed back then like it does now.

Our newest tradition (we started last year) is that we don't travel at Christmas. On Christmas Eve it's the three of us just relaxing, enjoying light appetizer type foods; and one of us has purchased and wrapped a new "family" game that we open and play until late at night/before bed. Christmas morning we sleep in a bit and then celebrate our Christmas. Last year I cooked a prime rib. It was good. This year, we will let Hilton Post Oak -- Houston cook for us. :) It just makes for a really peaceful, relaxing day; and Zach can play or show off whatever new items he got from Santa and then compare them with his friends -- David, Samantha and Tristan.

What is your favorite holiday tradition or memory you have? Tell me! All entries will be entered into drawing to receive a FREE A-sized stamp set from me. Deadline is 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, December 22nd.

On behalf of the Boyer Family, I want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! ~ Melanie, Wes, Zach & Freedom
