[ traditions ]

I’m trying really hard to keep up with all the traditions we have as a family at this time of year.
It is proving to be more challenging this year, but it is really important to me that the spirit of Christmas be alive in our house.  I’m hoping the children don’t feel the stress that I do and that they are enjoying decorating the Christmas tree (a first for me, I’m usually a control freak about that but decided it wasn’t worth them missing out on that opportunity), making treats for friends, thinking of gifts for others, making cookies for Santa, listening to Christmas music, attending Christmas parties and programs and driving around to look at Christmas lights.

We were not super impressed this year, but did find our winner:  a house that has their lights coordinated to music you can listen to in the car. That was fun! Time together, enjoying each other is about the best tradition we could have and that is all I hope for in the future!
