Merry Christmas to All, and to All Lots of Joy


Merry Christmas!

The most important parts of Christmas to me, and the one that bring me the most joy are those which stem from family tradition. Christmas has always been a big holiday in my life, and I can’t wait for all the little things throughout the day:

  • We start the day with coffee and reading the story of Jesus’ birth from Luke.
  • Then comes present time! (Although, this year is a little different, here‘s why!) I always love seeing everyone’s faces when they open the gifts I chose for them.
  • We always have sliced up fruit and Grands Cinnamon Rolls for breakfast. (Sooooo good!)
  • The year my father died was really hard, we couldn’t just sit at home- so we started a new tradition of going to see a film in the afternoon.
  • A special dinner of lamb and everything yummy!
  • And maybe our strangest tradition is watching a Christmas Story during Christmas dinner. (Super unconventional!

We weren’t going to do a tree this year, as we had donated Christmas away (anddddd all our decorations are in storage). However, I couldn’t go without that little tradition, so we purchased a small tree and I broke into my card stock and put together a chain and all these little ornaments for it, as well as making a bow. I’m so happy with how it turned out. I really did need this Christmas tradition!

I’m not posting a lot right now, because this time of year is all for family and those present in your life. However, I hope you are all enjoying your time with those you love and that your Christmas day is full of peace, laughter, and quiet moments that will last a lifetime- not to mention traditions!
