Christmas Traditions

Merry Christmas everyone! I'm so happy to besmearing some of my family's traditions with you today, as you celebrate with yours! Each year we have evolved our traditions as we haven't always lived in the same place. These last 2 Christmases have been super amazing as we have been able to go on the Polar Express!

Last Christmas, we rode the Polar Express in our Pajamas and Robes. We all matched and it was so much fun! On the train, you get to hear the story of the Polar Express, and you also get a chocolate chip cookie AND *hot hot hot* Hot chocolate! It was so much fun! The next day, we went to Bearizona, which was so cool, as they have a drive through zoo essentially. The predators just roam free and it is SO cool!  We also did a sleigh ride up in the snow once we were back home and that was so much fun! Here are some photos from last year:

We also do a Christmas puzzle every year. I love doing puzzles, and it is so much fun to work on something together as a family! Let em tell you, last year our puzzle was ridiculously difficult as the pieces weren't cut to regular jigsaw shapes! It took us forever but we finally finished it!

In addition to these fun traditions, we also watch Christmas movies, diffuse Holiday Joy, listen to Christmas music, and decorate the house. Most of our Christmas decor is Disney, but much of it is rustic too. I have these beautiful hand made ornaments that are crafted from straw. These are prized possessions of mine as they were gifted from family members in Germany.

I hope that you have a beautiful day today and remember that it's not important what is under the tree, it's important who is around the tree!

Merry Christmas Oilers!
