Let's Talk: Christmas Traditions

Happy Monday Foxy Friends. Today is my first day back after 2 weeks off, it was such a good break, I enjoyed every minute of it and can't wait for Christmas break and more time with the family.  Thanksgiving is over, so we can start thinking Christmas right? I'm in the midst of decorating for the Christmas link up on December 6th...I can do this...Two of the three trees up.  Today I'm linking up with Andrea and Erika for a Let's Talk, today's topic is Christmas Traditions.

Our kids are still relatively young, Mini Fox is just at the age where she understands what Christmas is, this year is going to be so much fun. We're still adding Christmas traditions, but so far these are the ones that stand out.

Ornaments - Each year the kids get to pick out an ornament at Hallmark, our thought is that they are going to pick what they are really into that far they've been true to that. It's always such a big deal to them.

Choosing is so hard...

Which one to pick, which one to pick.

He really wants the one with nothing there...of course.

After 15 minutes he finally chose a batman car.

The Polar Express - Last year we watched The Polar Express for the very first time, and I just LOVED it. I had never seen it before, and it was just magical watching Baby Fox watch it for the first time.

Family PJ's - Every year I like to get matching family pajamas. I'm lucky that Mr. goes along with my antics :) Every year my cousin throws a cousin Christmas party, and this year is family pajamas...this year we're not doing matching Pj's. but coorindating pj's...Baby Fox is Santa, Mr. and myself are going to be elves and Mini Fox is going to be a reindeer.



Christmas Cookies - All growing up my grandma made Christmas cookies, specifically Spritz Cookies,  for the entire family. Us girls would go to my grandma's and make cookies with her, spend the night, get ice cream sundaes in bed...the best memories. Now I'm trying to share that with my kids.

I still use my grandma's machine to make the shapes, that thing has got to be at least 35 years old.

 Each year I make about 1000 or so cookies to give to family and friends. This is just a small amount of them.

We just ordered Polar Express, can't wait to get it and kick off the holiday season!
