If you are interested in participating in future "Friday Five" linkups, here is what you do: first, write a post about five things (random things or things in line with the chosen theme for that week). The theme for this week is holiday traditions. In your post, you have to put the above pic and be sure to list and link to the blogs that sponsor the linkup. Then all you have to do is go link your post on their pages. There is an app that facilitates this.
So, enough "talk." Let's get started!
Here are five of our family holiday (in our house, Christmas) traditions!
1. We have an Elf on the Shelf. Our elf's name is George (Beth was on a Curious George kick when we got him). Now, I realize that when it comes to the Elf on the Shelf concept everyone is in one of three different camps: team "I don't know what you are talking about!?" (#googleit) or team "We love our elf!" or team "I hate that thing; it's creepy!" Whatever camp you find yourself in, just know this: our girls love Elf George. They awake every morning to try to find him, and it is #sostinkincute
|George returns every year on Thanksgiving night, and he always lands in the Christmas tree.|
|The angel with Mary and Joseph at Jesus' birth.|
|Listening to bible stories.|
|ALWAYS ice cream for desert!|
4. We always make time to go see Santa at some point during the Christmas season! Here are this year's pics of the girls with ol' Saint Nick.
|Beth (7) - She wants a computer for Christmas.|
|Hannah (3) - What she wants changes every minute of every day.|
There are more holiday traditions I could mention, but it's "Friday Five" and not "Friday Fifteen."
What are some of your holiday traditions?
Today's forget-me-not: Make memories. Lots of them!
