As Christmas vacation approached I started to think about our traditions. In our family we like to decorate early for Christmas; we start during Thanksgiving vacation. Then out comes the hot chocolate, sprinkles, whip cream and of course the candy canes. Usually every Tuesday in December we have hot chocolate and do homework in the family room. Of course this isn’t limited to Tuesday, if other days we feel like doing it and the schedule works out, we enjoy our afternoon treat. Anyways, it is important to have your own family traditions, whether it’s around holidays, summer time or just because. Kids look forward to traditions. They can be anything you want that works for your family. Some other things we enjoy doing are: Jamba juice and french fries or frozen yogurt for dinner. This usually takes place in the summertime. Another family favorite is the sleep over in the family room; yes, even daddy and mama join in the adventure. When this happens in the wintertime my hubby always has a fire in the fireplace and keeps it going all night long. We love to play games, Pictionary, card games, I spy, spoons, and any other games we choose. This is year round for us but especially when everybody is out of school. We live about a mile from a donut and coffee shop; we love to take family walks and get donuts and coffee. Walking and talking is the highlight of the trip! So go make some new traditions and create many lasting memories with those precious babies of yours. May God bless every adventure you have together!
Spend time and invest in your family!
