New Christmas Traditions

So it’s a busy week and I didn’t get my post done early – but I’ll share with you a couple of new Christmas traditions as a mommy!

A couple of years ago I really wanted to bake cookies. My mom has cookie baking with her grandkids – but our schedules never coincide for us to be able to get together with Curly and Georgie. So I started making cookies and having my niece & nephew, Moe & Larry, help decorate them. As Curly & Georgie have grown – the tradition continues.

This year we are having it at the last minute – between our schedules and sicknesses, we didn’t think it was going to happen – but we’re scrambling to get together today to get some cookies baked, decorated and delivered to a few friends. =)

Another tradition we’ve shared is visiting the local Christmas lights display at the county fairgrounds. It’s a drive thru display and we’ve gone for many years together. This year – Curly & Georgie got to go with Mamaw & Papaw – and we’ve taken some side roads at times so we can all enjoy lights together.

I have other traditions I’d like to add – buying new ornaments for the girls each year, reading Luke 2 Christmas morning, and having a birthday cake for Jesus – but those are coming in time.

Hope you’re enjoying many family Christmas and holiday traditions this year!
