Happy, happy December!! Yesterday was December 1, the holiday is officially here at our home! We have lots of traditions as Christmas time….. baking cookies and hot chocolate, Christmas movies, looking at lights, crafts, sledding, ice skating and games. There are lots of fun things to do in the winter! One of my favorite tradtions is every night we sing a Christmas carol, read a scripture and read a Christmas story. I will admit sometimes, it is quite the feat to get all the kids ready for bed, teeth brushed, house picked up…. but it is worth it.
We are putting our tree up tonight for family home evening , so from tonight on we will read the story in front of the tree. And if we are putting up the tree tonight that means we are making cookies, having hot chocolate and watching a movie tonight!! I love this time of year~ There is something magical about Christmas, the lights, the joy and the good will towards others. Are you singing the carol in your head now? I am! I love traditions, I think they make our family feel more connected and it definitely makes things more exciting! The children look forward to the special things that we do! What are your favorite holiday traditions? I love to add more in so please share~ Hope your day is wonderful!
