I have always been a big fan of Christmas traditions. This year we were able to start a few new ones and include Caleb in a few old ones. Some of the traditions we kept alive this year were:

Opening matching jammies Christmas eve,
decorating gingerbread houses with friends,
picking out a new ornament for the tree,

attending Christmas parties at work and church,
sitting on Santa's lap (several times I might add),
walking around "Candy Cane Lane" with milkshakes while looking at all the lights,

and lastly and most importantly opening presents Christmas morning!
There were a few other traditions we kept alive that we didn't get pictures of which were; picking angel tree names and helping deliver gifts, making delicious deserts for neighbors and friends, reading the Christmas story, reading a different Christmas book every night, and Caroling. I love Christmas and all the joy and happiness it brings!


  1. That gingerbread house is seriously AMAZING!!!! How nice to go for a walk and not have to worry about freezing, i'm a little bit jealous! :o)
    Glad you guys had a wonderful Christmas.

  2. What fun traditions. I love traditions around the holidays. It makes things so special, I think. I really love the angel tree names. I never thought of having a tradition like that but it's a great one. When you first said you walked around looking at lights while drinking milk shakes, I thought you were nuts! Then I remembered you live in a much warmer climate than I do. :)
