We have a few traditions at our house we have done for several years. The shepherds move toward the creche a little each day, Jesus gets a birthday cake at Christmas dinner, and we make ornaments.
This year we started a few new ones.
Reusing Christmas Cards
We reused Christmas cards from the year before by making a banner and ornaments with them.
Giving Christmas to Others
All during the month JDaniel and I have been looking for ways to give Christmas to others. We have been sharing them in a weekly link up called Giving Others Christmas. We have given food, toys, Christmas boxes, and mittens.
JDaniel and I walked through the the Journey Through the Manger display at his preschool's church.
We also explored the Christmas display in Paris, Arkansas when we were there for Thanksgiving.
Making Candy Houses
JDaniel decorated RiceKrispies Treat Houses with my mom.
We decorated at Trader Joes' Gingerbread house together.
I look for to visiting your posts and taking in your Christmas crafts, recipes, traditions or memories.
