Christmas Adam

For the past several years, our family has started a little tradition that I now like to call Christmas Adam. I have named this evening celebration, Christmas Adam, because we celebrate it on the night before Christmas Eve. Get it? Christmas Adam, because it comes before Christmas Eve? (Bwahaha. I am so clever. Moving on.) Anyway, on Christmas Adam, we (whoever from the family that is in town or is available) go over to Grammy and Da's house for a fettuccine dinner. Yum. We have also made it our tradition for the girls to write their letters to Santa on this night (we leave their letters for Sam the Elf to carry back to the Big Guy on his nightly trip to the North Pole, as this saves on postage, and I am cheap), and we always play a few exciting rounds of How the Grinch Stole Christmas Bingo. This year, Kate was our big winner, and she was super proud. As a special bonus on Christmas Adam 2010, this year Da wrote a witty and clever poem to read aloud to the children. His writings always make them smile. It was a great evening. I hope the tradition of celebrating Christmas Adam lasts in our family for years to come.
