Our Journey

Traditions

Hey thanks for stopping by. Did you have a good Christmas? Did you start any new traditions? Any traditions that you keep up from your childhood?

I actually had a good Christmas, which is very surprising to me. You see I am one of those people that doesn’t normally like Christmas time. But this year, I actually was at peace and I was able to enjoy what I could do and the things we couldn’t I didn’t let it get me down.  So I asked about traditions, so I guess its only fair to tell you some of the stuff we did.

This year my sister wanted to do something new. Normally we get together to decorate cookies but what usually happens is we make tons of cookie dough, and then we roll out the dough and start baking, meanwhile the kids are already bored because they just want to make a mess decorate the cookies and then eat them. Of course we are like: We are making memories! As we try to micromanage the kids. Halfway through the kids are outside playing and we are inside making cookies and cleaning up the mess. So this year, Sis decided we should decorate gingerbread houses, cookies and make reindeer food. So she preassembled the houses and got premade cookies, set out all the candies, and supplies and even set up a hot chocolate bar. My brother in law read the kiddos a Christmas story. It was a total success and the kids LOVED it!!

We did miss a few things, like not going to see the lights, we also missed the local parade. But we did get to go to Sea World021 294

and Hollywood Studios to see their lights.

I hope you had a very Merry Christmas!!!

Wishing you many Blessings Rainbow
