I love Christmas time. All things about it. The music, movies, making gifts, decorating, baking… I just love it all. Harlan does his best to contain my love for this season to it’s appropriate time frame (even though he’s fully aware that I watch Christmas movies year-round). I’m not allowed to set up our tree until Thanksgiving is officially over. But you can bet, as soon as that leftover turkey is in the fridge, I’ve got White Christmas playing and decorations are on their way up. One of my favorite parts of the decorating is our Advent calendar.
When Baron was first born, a friend told me something that really stuck with me. When your kids are grown, they’re not going to remember gifts you bought for them. What they remember is the things you do together. It’s so true. So we choose to spend time together making memories and coming up with our own traditions.
