     I feel like life has been non-stop lately with everyday life and preparing for the holidays, but I realized this week that we're nearly done with our Christmas shopping. It's exciting since we'll be able to relax and enjoy more time as a family. The kids have been having fun counting down the days 'til Christmas with our Advent Calendar and coloring/activity books. Then today they helped me make gingerbread men for neighbors. This week's posts inspired me to create a list of a few family tradition ideas for the month of December. What are some of your favorite traditions? I'd love to hear in the comments!
