twelve days of Christmas (part three)

One of my favorite Kaufman traditions is their Christmas procession before opening gifts. We turn off all the lights and crowd into the back hallway. We each get a candle or a figure from the Nativity. (When I was pregnant with Sam, I got to carry Mary.) The youngest child gets to carry Jesus and lay him in the manger and then we sing some Christmas carols and say a prayer...

...and then it's time to open presents!

I had no idea they had this tradition. What a great idea!
