I have decided that this weekend will kick off the Holiday season for me, enough bah-humbug from this lady!(heh, I called myself a lady)
Over the years I have developed a few Christmas traditions that I would like to pass onto my son – the first includes the age old classic of decorating the tree, but of coarse it may be a little difficult this year because he is two and still puts everything in his mouth. Anyhoo, the tradition is that once the tree is done, the final decoration (usually a star or an angel) gets put on the tree by the youngest member so this year it will be Allister’s job. (yay…)
Some other things we love to do (we meaning my daughter Keelyn and myself) is to watch Christmas movies, usually this starts off on December 4th (I dont know why, but it just does) and the first movie is ALWAYS “ELF“… I really love this movie and hope Allister takes to it like we have.
A few other Holiday movie musts are:
I will also be sending out Christmas cards, taking winter photos and hosting a few parties at home – Namely an Ugly Sweater Christmas dinner with various family members attending via skype and in person and A Masquarade New Years Eve, all of this while away from home 13 hours a day 5 days a week and when all I want to do is SLEEP.
What are your plans? Do you have any traditions for this time of year?
