*Side note* That is another reason why co-sleeping has been a good arrangement for us. Unless Ayden is having a rough night our sleep cycles tend to be in sync so even though I still may wake a few times, I can wake for the day feeling rested. There are even times when I wake on my own only for him to stir a minute later. It is actually pretty amazing...After breakfast, Ayden and I joined David for a CrossFit workout (and by joined, I just mean hung out and watched) and then we went to see Jess and Adam at Jess' family's annual candy making party. It is always good to see them. We didn't stay too long because we had CHRISTMAS DECORATING on our agenda for the day!!
Obviously Ayden is still too young to know about, care about, or even remember traditions but my mother always made Christmas so magical for me that I have always looked forward to being a mother for Christmas. The traditions we have in place so far are the ones that we had before Ayden was here: Watching Elf and drinking some sort of warm, festive drink while decorating the tree for instance.
|Candy Cane Lane tea and a big hunk of dark chocolate!|
(Combo tastes like peppermint bark!)
|Decorating the tree with a (almost) toddler is interesting to say the least...|
What are your family's holiday traditions? Hearing about what other families do would definitely help us on our quest to figuring out exactly what we want to do. Thanks for sharing!
