In With the Old, and In With the New?

Hey y'all- no witty first line for you today, because I'm too excited for Christmas!

It's tomorrow y'all. I've been keeping track on my Christmas countdown since December 1st!

I've been seeing a lot on all of your blogs about Christmas traditions, so I decided to share some of my family's traditions. A couple of weeks ago, I talked about how we decorate the tree together, but we don't stop there.

Every year, we pile into the minivan with blankets and some food and drive around looking at the lights- Christmas music on full blast of course. This year, Bee made our family a CD (mixtape sounds SO much cooler) full of Christmas music, so we jammed out to that.

San Jose has a huge Christmas in the Park festival every year, and we've made it out there a grand total of twice. Regardless, it was lots of fun, especially the ferris wheel.
yes, I know the quality of this is about as low as my dogs tail when she knows she's in trouble. Deal with it. 

Look how cute this little train is! 

I know that a lot of these are trivial, but they mean a lot to me. Even though we're all growing up, and I'll be in college in a mere two years, I'll always remember decorating the tree together, or sharing a cup of hot chocolate at Christmas in the park. Amid all the junior year craziness, I know my family always has my back, and these traditions just affirm that. 
Every year, we make more and more traditions and this year marks the "let's make Christmas cookies for the neighborhood!" tradition. 
Have a wonderful Christmas everyone, and take time to appreciate your family a little more.
