December is always full of fun family traditions which makes the month so very special each year. One tradition that I always look forward to is going to our grandmother’s house for a Christmas Eve celebration with my mom’s entire side of the family. This gathering always includes lots of love, laughter, fun, and of course holiday cheer. Alexa, Amy and myself (#thethreeglasses) come from a very large family which alway entails LOTS of fun, so I always look forward to this event.
For years, as long as I can remember, we played the game “White Elephant” on Christmas Eve. If you have never played as a family, I highly suggest you do because it is definitely a good time! Click this link to learn about the rules of the game (https://www.whiteelephantrules.com/). This will be the only gift I am buying this year… it’s tradition. Growing up, Amy (sunshinebutblushwine.com) of course would bring the most fashionable chic gifts for the game and Alexa and I would literally fight over them. She was the cool cousin, well all my cousins are cool but she was “fashionable cool” and my whole family can testify to that. I am so excited to see what she brings this year!!
Alexa, Amy and I (#thethreeglasses) thought it would be fun to share the recipe we will be bringing to our Christmas Eve celebration with yall. I am bringing my absolute favorite dessert ever that Colton’s mom shared with me a few years back! I make this for almost every holiday! I change it up a bit to fit the season and I never take a bite home from an event.
