In less than twelve days it will be Christmas. It’s always a busy time leading up to this day – the busiest time for us with the shop. As a family, we’ve started traditions with the kids during the holidays. The advent calendar, the return of our holiday elf, making our candy houses, cutting down our tree, sewing an ornament each year, visiting the firehouse to see santa, caroling with Holly’s scout troop at the local retirement home, matching christmas eve pajamas, and the nativity play at Sunday School. Maybe you share some of these same traditions? It’s nice to have these moments with the kids. To see their utter delight and strong belief in the magic of this holiday.
