When I think of Christmas I definitely think of traditions. What traditions do I want to past to my children in hopes to one day see them doing the same with their children.
I can think of two right off the bat. One of which is that my grandmother bought us an ornament each year and when I left home I took each unique and memorable one with me. I’ve asked my mother to do the same with my own children and will be happy to see their tree one day adorn with the memories we are creating.
The second tradition that comes to mind is making Christmas cookies. Honey has been asking for several days to make them and we finally got around to it last night. Only Honey and Bud were willing to help. Nick seems to be taking the “I’m just not into it” attitude when it comes to decorating, baking, etc.
We always do the traditional cut out cookies and the kids get to decorate to their hearts content. The only difference from when I was young is I buy the prepackaged throw in some eggs and water and instant sugar cookies you will have.
