Christmas Traditions.

I have been a busy little beaver over the past few days making all of the Christmas cards for our family and friends- I will be sharing some photos when I am done : ) I am hoping to have all of the cards finished over the weekend to post first thing next week. Making these cards has become one of our traditions along with including a family photo and newsletter of what we have been up to over the past year. It is a great summary for friends and family especially those we might not see frequently.

Once we had our own family Christmas took on a whole new meaning for us. It meant the start of our own family traditions. These will change constantly and we will add and remove things as our family grows but at the moment our Christmas Traditions look something like this-

*Dec 1st or the weekend before put up the Christmas tree together.
*Make Christmas cookies, cupcakes, fruit mince pies, lollipops and any other yummy goodies we can find.
* Special stories with Flynn on Christmas Eve- Cookies and milk out for Santa and water for the Reindeer.
*Christmas crafts and activities throughout the month of December
*Hand make the Christmas cards with newsletter and family photo
*Christmas BBQ for close friends to catch up with friends the weekend before Christmas
*Watching the Christmas Pageant in the city
*Visit Santa land in the city and ride the mini train
*Local carols by candlelight
*Christmas Eve dinner- immediate family
*New Pajamas on Christmas eve for the family.
*Then we do the family gatherings for lunch on Christmas day and Boxing day

These are a few of the things we will be getting up to over the next month, and I can't wait to share this years journey with you : ) Today I made our traditions into a scrapbook page which will live on the fridge for the next month to remind us of all of the fun things we have to look forward to over the next month !!

Here is the font

It is free to download and the one shown in the photo is the Becky Higgins one : ) I love it and use it on almost everything !!

Good idea on the Christmas Lights, Flynn will probably be a lot more interested to try that this year : )
