Holiday Hugs For Everyone

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas!

I can’t believe another Christmas has come and gone! The holidays are always so much fun but they go by way too fast. We drove down from Pittsburgh last Saturday night and kicked off our holiday activities with a Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt. My cousin put this event together for all of the Huber Cousins. We broke up into 4 teams and had 2 hours to find almost 80 types of Christmas lights. Our car was the best - we found a real live Santa sitting in his yard handing out candy canes! We all ended up back at my cousin’s house for food and board games. We can’t wait to continue this tradition next year!

On Christmas Eve morning, Justin drove down to his Grandma’s house. We still haven’t figured out this whole “merge the traditions” thing, but we’re working on it. He made it back in time for pictures in front of the tree and Christmas Eve mass with the Huber family.

The long standing Huber tradition is to go to grandma’s on Christmas Eve after mass. There are 35 of us and we all cram into Grandma’s basement for presents. This year we had three babies under a year old. They loved all of the presents but I’m pretty sure they loved the wrapping paper more.

After grandma’s we headed back to my parent’s house for Christmas #3. We exchanged all of our gifts and set cookies out for Santa…which Levi decided to eat!

We woke up Christmas morning and did stockings at my parent’s house before driving down to Justin’s parent’s house. We exchanged gifts there and then went to visit with his grandparent’s for a bit.

Before we knew it, it was time to head north again for Christmas #6 with my mom’s side of the family. We played card games and played with the baby’s toys all night long.

Before we knew it, Christmas was over and we were camped out on the couches talking about our favorite things from the last few days. As cheesy as it sounds, my favorite part of the holiday is just spending time with family.

What is your favorite Christmas tradition?
What was your favorite gift this year?
