Every year in November my small town holds a Downtown Christmas festival. And every year my girls and I go on a Mommy / Daughters date. We don't care how cold it is or if it's raining or snowing. We always have fun no matter the weather.
We start out the night by watching the small parade, eagerly awaiting for Santa to make his entrance. I love watching the excitement in my childrens faces. I'm sure they see the same in mine.
After the parade we walk around town listening to and going into all the stores to what fasinating things we can find. Of course we love when those stores have cookies and cider. Who wouldn't like a free treat?
As we are walking around the stores, my girls look for their yearly . Every year I buy them a new ornament so when they grow up and have their own they have a good start on the decorations for it. I put their name and year they got it on the back.
When we put up our Christmas Tree we have fun talking about the times we got them. My hope is that they will do the same with their children.
We love the memories that this yearly tradition brings us. I can't wait to add this years memories to them!
My question to you is: Do you have any traditions that you cherish?
