The Gorga house is filled with Christmas JOY tonight!🎄
Why? My kids received their annual 🎁 special delivery from Santa ... thanks to PACKAGEFROMSANTA.com!

When those RED boxes come, we wait ‘til family dinner to open them together. Their favorite item in the BOX of goodies is the custom LETTER FROM SANTA. 🎅 Each year, I edit the letter to make it PERSONAL and unique for each child. They like to take turns reading their letter aloud. So SWEET!

With two TWEENS and a 6-year-old, we have varying levels of belief in our home, so this Christmas-loving mama sticks to tradition to help create Christmas MAGIC😍alive! We'll do this for years to come and I wouldn’t be surprised if my kids carried this tradition on with their own little ones someday. SPECIAL times with my FAVORITE people! 😇If you want to SHARE this TRADITION with your family too, just go to PackageFromSanta.com. I used coupon code JOY25 and saved 25%! I wish you and your fam Christmas magic, LOVE, and joy!🎅 #PackageFromSanta #LettersFromSanta #giftideasforkids #familytraditions #familyownedbusiness

This song is about my beautiful homeland, I perform it every time I have a chance to play a piano. 
Today is very cold day in Florida and I'm hiding in bed with a big cup of tea. It reminds me my family cozy house with mom in the kitchen cooking dinner and me with dad playing jazz or some classic romances. This is part of who I am, my family traditions. And no matter where I'm now geographically, my soul is always remember where I came from. 🎹#myjourney #neverforgetwhoyouare #easterneuropean #familytraditions #pianoplayer #arttoday #artlife #miami #winterinflorida #soflo #floridaliving

First Christmas in my First Home ... starting good ol family Christmas traditions off right... with a REAL tree🌲
.
Looks great in the living room.
.
Smells fantastic!
.
And didn’t come with any squirrels.
.
To be honest I don’t know why so many people hate on real trees!
.
Are you a REAL or FAKE kinda person? .
Please explain...

This weekend we went out with the kids to a Xmas market, and afterwards we went for a walk down town to check out the Xmas decoration this Year 🎄. .

We found lots of beautiful lights ✨ and we all got some fresh air and a bit of exercise. - We had to make sure that every part of town was properly explored 🔍!! Do you have lots of Xmas lights and markets where you live?

Logan said, “the colors are beautiful!” and picked out the most colorful tree topper along with the most unnoticeable green and red tinsel garland stating, “this will match our tree good.” Whatever makes u happy, little one! I love the gloominess of it. 😄 #ChristmasTree #Christmas2017 #TisTheSeason #InsideTheMindOfA5YrOld #FamilyTraditions

Gift 8. Togetherness. I love being out and about with my Crew. There is nothing like family outings. Eating, laughing, playing, cooking, sitting, talking, being...individually and as a collective they are my greatest treasure and reward. Tonight we sang MoTown Christmas classics from Pandora, picked our tree and gathered around our  kitchen table to share “highs” and “lows” of the day. Together is not just a holiday theme for us. Together is our sacred normal-our everyday routine. Not perfect. Not always on one accord but together. I LOVE US!! #togetherness #familytraditions #sacrednormal #christmas2017🎄 #midlifevibing #brownsugarinc

Each year I have a Christmas tradition where I have my kids choose an ornament that means something to them or relates to any fun loving memory they’ve had and this year Jayden pick the truck with the Christmas tree in the back...it reminds him of dad when he picks out the tree and ornaments ☺️. Hazel went for the sleigh because she says it tKes her back when dad takes them each year to big bear and down the snow hill they go with sleds. I chose the moose for Maddox because it’s cute lol but can’t wait to have him pick his 🤗 #familytraditions

How could I forget to post about St. Nicholas Day?! This year was our first year celebrating the feast day of Saint Nicholas, and we had so much fun. It's definitely a tradition that I am going to be continuing for years to come. #stnicholasday #stnicholas #familytime #familytraditions #boymom #momof2 #godisgood #blessed #christmas
Took these two to the Nutcracker at the Carpenter Center @richmondballet. It was fantastic and the girls were mesmerized. One of the bests parts was during the Shepard/Shepardess dance. Evie: “Oh I wish I was that ballerina”. Phoebe: “I wish I was the sheep, because it takes a lot of practice to be a ballerina, so I wish I was just a sheep”. Who says five year olds don’t have perspective. #phoebekatherine #eviegrace13 #nutcrackerballet #richmondballet #rva #christmas #familytraditions #getfancy #itsadatenight #magical #carpentercenter

Tradition! Tradition! (Read Fiddler on the Roof style.) With so many great things to chose from at Christmas time, what do you pick? Church parties, light festivals, Christmas count downs, neighbor treats, ugly sweater parties, open a wrapped book each night, volunteering at a homeless shelter, elf on the shelf, caroling, ice skating, the list really great options is huge! How do you pick which ones to carry on and which ones to let go? Because right now I feel like we could use a down night, a “hygge” night, but the Christmas to-do list has no end in site! Any tips?

I forgot to put the pics!
I've been busy being ill & sleeping! 😴🤢😷 Every year since Ash was born (Xmas 2005) he put the star on the top of the tree. 8 years later when X was born, they shared the responsibility.
We're not one for traditions in our house really, but for some reason I feel strongly about this.
