Once we arrive at Grandma's the traditions continue. She makes every roll or coffee cake imaginable.
Then we have multiple breakfast casseroles.
Then there is fruit frap. I have no idea how it got it's name. It seems to be my grandma's favorite punch recipe and she only makes it Christmas morning.
This is the first year my grandma didn't have sleigh gifts. She has always bought small gifts that go in the sleigh. We were only allowed to touch those gifts as children. As we got older she started using codes, instead of names. When she started doing that it was always fun to try and figure out what your code name was. They were also only for the kids. She continued that tradition with the great-grand-kids.
The last tradition at grandmas was the yearly picture. I think we all hated it growing up, but now I'm glad we have the pictures of our childhood.
