Angelicscalliwags Christmas Traditions: Christmas Eve

It’s so cold this year that we might just do this a few weeks early so we can spend the rest of December home schooling in onsies 🙂


I do realise I’m posting this after Christmas, but I wanted to include it in my tradition series, without having to wait a whole year to do so.
