We are heading to Indiana tomorrow, so Santa comes tonight at our house. The elves are busy making final preparations! 😉

Since the moment I found out I was pregnant two Decembers ago, I have been thinking about the holiday traditions I want to continue/start with my own little family. Growing up it was Christmas Eve service followed by a viewing of Claymation Christmas and 24-hours of a A Christmas Story. Of course with Pinterest and blogs, there is a plethora of ideas out there, but I saw one on a blog called Imagination Tree that I couldn’t wait to try. It is a Christmas Eve Surprise Box. Or in the case of this year, a Christmas Eve Eve Surprise Box.

Laney is still a bit too young to really understand, but she has been really into trains lately. I decided an evening of reading Polar Express in our jammies with some tasty snacks was the perfect way to start our new tradition. Add in some fun cups for drinking and a train whistle and we will have ourselves a Christmas Eve Eve party!

While we wait for the party to start, we have been busy playing with new toys from Nana and Papa.
