Christmas Traditions

Tis the season to be jolly. As we transition from Thanksgiving to Christmas it is time to think about all of the family traditions that we do each year. Since the arrival of our new baby 4 months ago, we have been trying to involve our 6 year old more to engage him with the baby. Here are a couple traditions that we will continue and have our oldest son share with his baby brother.

  • Each family member picks out an ornament each year. When the kids grow up, we'll give them their ornaments for their own trees.
  • Christmas Tree Train - For the past couple years, we have ridden the Christmas Tree Train in Fillmore, CA and cut down our own Christmas Tree. Last year, we rode a camel while we were there!
  • Gingerbread house, Reindeer food, letter to Santa, etc - Can't forget these timeless basics.
  • Photo with Santa - We have started an album that has our Christmas card and photos with Santa each year.
There are many other things that we do, but to get in the spirit of the season I wanted to share a few. Happy Holidays!!!
