Christmas Traditions

Today I thought that it might be fun to share some of our Christmas Traditions!   This is a lengthy post, but you have all weekend…right? :)

But before I start this post…I would like to wish everyone a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving weekend!  I hope that you get to do something that you love with people that you love! 

One of our Christmas traditions that we do is to donate blankets and quilts to one of our local hospitals.  We start this in November or even before.  I try to make a few quilted quilts and then we all tie several fringed fleece blankets. (click on link for tutorial on how to make these easy fleece blankets)

Sinterklaas Party 2013

We had our annual Sinterklaas party this last weekend and the kids had a great time!

 Sinterklass day is not until Dec. 5th, but we always have our party on the weekend when we can all be together.  We started this tradition after my oldest son served a mission for our church, in the Netherlands.  I love all of the rich traditions that go along with the arrival of Sinterklaas and the start of the Christmas season.  That is why we celebrate it every year.  It is just a fun way to kick off the holidays!   I will apologize in advanced for all the family pictures in this post, but that is what this party is all about and then also this fun guy:
