Christmas Traditions: Amy

I have only known Amy for a few months and I already love her!  Her and her family are members of our church.  She has the most bubbly personality and her family is just precious!

Hi! My name is Amy and I live in  Belle Chasse, LA. 
Even though I live in the South, I'm a bona fide Hoosier. 
I was born and raised in southern Indiana and I love it there. 
I went to college at Pensacola Christian College and received my Associates in Office System. 
I met my husband there and will be forever grateful that I was lead to go to PCC. 
God truly brought us together!

We were married in January 2010.

He joined the Navy in April 2010.

We have a little girl, Liberty, born in November 2010.

I am expecting a boy right now.
He will be born around Christmas time.
We are so excited!

With the Christmas season coming quickly around the corner, my husband and I have been talking about what type of Christmas traditions we would like to start with our family. We both loved the family traditions we both grew up with, so we are going to try to incorporate them along with some of our own. This will also be our first Christmas together since we have been married ( he was at boot camp for our first Christmas and his first Christmas with Liberty).

My favorite Christmas tradition that I grew up with was my mother would never write our names on our presents because one year my sisters and I unwrapped all our presents when they were asleep ( we were very curious little girls ). So she would label them with numbers or super heroes or colors.
My husband's favorite tradition was the stockings, his parents would hide this little Christmas bear somewhere in the house and whoever found it first got to open their stocking first.

Our tradition we are going to start is wrap new and old books up and every night in December our children will unwrap one of the books and we will read it to them. 
I want to wish everyone a very happy and Merry Christmas!

Thank you, Amy!!  
Aren't they the cutest family?!  I can't wait for baby boy to get here!  
He is going to make the perfect Christmas present for them.  :o)
