It’s the MOST wonderful time of the year and I am the biggest sucker for all things festive! Starting new traditions with my little family is something I looked forward to before we even had any kiddos and now that Karis actually understands what is going on (well kind of) GIVE ME ALL THE CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS!!!!
So, here are a few traditions we have done for the past couple of years and a few new traditions we are starting this year!!
Cookie baking day! One of my favorites!! Give me all the cookie dough! All the girls in the family get together a few days before Christmas and bake our hearts out literally all day!! SO fun and something I am totally looking forward to doing again this year!
Festival of Lights! Our downtown goes all out during Christmas time! Christmas lights everywhere, mini donuts that are to die for, reindeer, mechanical elves (because what’s better then a creepy elf??) Santa Clause!!! I KNOW HIM!!!! anyways…
Twas the Night Before Christmas! We read this book to Karis every Christmas eve, and Bexley will join in this year! I plan on keeping up this super simple but totally sweet tradition, ummm forever!
Matching Jammies! I mean ALL of us! This is a new tradition this year and I’m not even mad about it! Karis basically thinks it’s the best thing ever and she’s totally right! It IS the best thing ever!
Christmas Lights! We went out Christmas light hunting 2 years ago with hot coffee in hand and all bundled up and it ended up being one of the most magical evenings! We weren’t able to do it last year (due to me puking my brains out, morning sickness for the win) BUT I am good and well this year and we will definitely be starting this one up again!!
Christmas Cards! I absolutely love getting Christmas cards printed with a fun picture of the family! We always love to use Tiny Prints and I am so impressed with how they turned out this year!!
I am DYING to hear about your Christmas traditions!!! Tell me your favorites!! What am I missing out on??
