Holiday Traditions

Do you have any holiday traditions? I know growing up we had traditions passed down through the generations. Like Santa always leaving Apples, Oranges and nuts in our stockings as well as unwrapped gifts under our tree. We always opened Courtney family gifts on Christmas eve and Miller family gifts on Christmas morning. Christmas is one of my most cherished holidays. Its about family, that's why I love it so much.

Since marrying Zeus, we have made our own traditions. The most loved tradition our family has is to go to a tree farm and cut our very own tree. Over the years it seems to have gotten harder to find one because we have four little opinions added to our opinions as well. The kids look forward to tree hunting every year. This year was perfect because the weather cooperated with us. It was a beautiful sunny day in the mid 60's. Can't ask for a much better autumn day for tree hunting.

This year we hunted for about an hour or so and the best part was the babies all worked together to cut the tree down themselves. Zeus said he likes not having to do the cutting any more. Little does he know this tradition will continue when we have four adults, hahahaha.

Anyways this tree is a beautiful 7 foot white pine that has a very large girth. She is gorgeous.

We had a good time and enjoyed our little precious family moments and tradition.
