Hello December

It’s the month of December, Christmas is around the corner and it’s the end of the year. We hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiivng holiday with family and friends. Since we’re in a holiday mood, what are you looking forward to this month? Is it lots of egg nog, decorating the tree, baking cookies with the kids? Be sure to let us in on some of your favorite holiday traditions.
We have a two year old in the house and he got to decorate the tree over the weekend, boy did he enjoy that. The lights, the ornaments even putting the wreaths on the front door seems to make him  happy. These are the moments that reminded my sister and I about our childhood and Christmas time. Those memories had us thinking about the traditions we were brough up on and what we are looking forward to this holiday season.
  • Spending Christmas with our family ( this may actually be an upcoming blog post)
  • Baking cookies, cakes and pies.
  • Seeing all the Christmas lights
  • Egg Nog ( I can’t drink it, but my sister loves it!)
  • Snow (We’re from Massachusetts)
  • Cookie Exchanges
  • Popcorn Balls
  • Making Gingerbead Houses
  • Christmas movies!!
These are just a few of the things we are looking forward to this season. What are you looking forward to this holiday season? We may feature you on our blog this month.
