We have been really enjoying some of our family traditions lately.
A new and wonderful one was doing this…..
I’ve always wanted 2 of the things in the photo above. The stockings to be personalized, and a fireplace to hang them….. Just love it.
There’s also been loads of x-mas music playing all day and night. I almost cry when I hear Jack singing the songs, or see Luke dancing to them. Remind me to tell you about Luke and a certian song later.
Then there’s the tradition that we look forward to from the time Halloween is over and we know x-mas is on it’s way.
The Tree going up… We had lots of help this year and the placement of our ornaments reflect little boys taste
The making of cookies at home to share with our family…….
I kid you not (and if you’ve been a reader long enough you know that we make 29 different kinds of cookies, bars, and yummy treats. AND, most aren’t just a batch, but up to 6X of a batch.
To go even further, I thought I heard something like 15 lbs of butter and I know that for one kind of cookie, each family (there are 5) took home 60 of just that kind.
Here’s some of our haul today….
It’s fun, it’s yummy, and a tradition we enjoy every year.
