The countdown is on!
There are 8 days until Thanksgiving and less than 6 weeks until Christmas. The holidays are the busiest season in our household, but also provide the most opportunity to celebrate together as a family. Our holidays consist of a plethora of food and a large gathering of family and friends. Yet there is something else that truly makes our holidays memorable.
As I’ve grown into an adult with my own kids, I seek to recreate the memories I had as a child—to bring what my husband and I grew up with into the lives of our children. We want to have traditions. It’s our heritage. When we are old and grey and our kids are grown, we want to hear them sit around and tell their children about the fun things we did as a family every year. Traditions are more than just fun memories, but can become part of the legacy we are passing on.Traditions allow a part of one generation to carry forward into the next, leaving a dynamic legacy for our children's children.

Holiday traditions not only bring a uniquely tailored experience to celebration, but help us to stay focused on why we are celebrating. With all the excitement we can easily be distracted from the One who has given us a reason to celebrate. This year we are starting a few new traditions that are bringing us closer as a family and allowing us to truly enjoy the individual holidays that are approaching.
