Winter and Christmas time are so much fun with the children. Our own backyard provides lots of entertainment for playing in the snow and even sledding down the small hill! The best part of going outside to get fresh air and get our wiggles out is coming inside for hot cocoa and warming up by the fireplace afterwards.
Our top 5 Christmas traditions…
Opening the box of Christmas and Advent books from storage, then reading The Man who Was Really Saint Nicholaus and also The night before Christmas before bedtime
Making Christmas cookies and putting them out for St. Nicholaus a on Christmas Eve
Picking out one of the last Christmas trees at the nursery, because we wait until after our daughter’s December birthday and well into Advent to put up our tree – it’s exciting to anticipate the birth of Christ!
Enjoying a chocolate treat from the Advent calendar as we count down the days until Christmas
Making and giving a present or cake to Jesus on his birthday
We’re looking forward to making many more memories and traditions as we bring more children into our family!
