Even if there were some would-be traditions that flopped, there are still tons that we loved and I know we will continue them with our kids. We have the Thanksgiving Pinata, junk food on Christmas Eve, and finding a way to be involved in Mass during every holiday season. Here are a few pics of new traditions that I didn't get from my parents, but Curly seems to enjoy so far this year.
|Opening Christmas ornaments: Scott's parents got him an ornament each year that matched the activity or TV show that he loved. We've gotten Curly ornaments for Little Hungry Caterpillar, Green Eggs and Ham, and Elmo.|
|Here are Curly and Scott with this year's ornaments. The small tree behind them shows off all the ornaments from Scott's childhood...Taz, the Simpsons, basketball, and hockey.|
|We tried gingerbread houses this year! It doesn't look much like a house, but she had fun eating the frosting and candy!|
|I only remember visiting Santa once as a kid, so if we went every year, I guess he didn't make much of an impact. Curly was nervous, but still thought Santa was pretty awesome.|
