This is my favorite time of the year. I love the holidays and all things that come along with it such as baking cookies, gathering with family and friends and doing holidays activities.
Last year the twins were still to young to really understand what was going on, but now as they are a little older we are beginning our own holiday traditions with them.
Sometimes we get wrapped up (no pun intended) on buying gifts and I want my kids to grow up knowing the holidays to be more than just presents. I want them to think of the holidays as building snowmen, going sledding, driving around neighborhoods with hot cocoa singing Christmas carols looking at lights or just relaxing by the fire and watching a fun Christmas movie.
When I found this image (on Pinterest, of course) I was immediately drawn to this. I feel this is what the holidays are to us, experiences not things.
