Treasured Family Traditions

I love that Christmas still makes me feel (and sometimes act) like a kid. Tonight, my family and I indulged in all our old traditions....the ones that make me feel loved and safe and happy, no matter what our actual situation is.

So I made some favorite Christmas cookies with my mom, listened to some Christmas carols, had some 7-layer Jello (we've done this since 1987!) and watched Love Actually. And since we're on vacation and not at home, we decorated a teeny tiny Christmas tree.

Before I sign off for the weekend, I wanted to wish everyone a very merry Christmas. Even though I love the secular trappings of Christmas as much as the next person, I also try to remember that at its heart, Christmas is about God's love for us. Have a wonderful weekend and see you next week!


  1. Love Actually is one of my favourite holiday movies! Enjoy the time spent with your family at Christmas; your traditions sounds like a lot of fun! xx

  2. Love that you remember the real meaning of Christmas. And I love your holiday traditions. Have a very Merry Christmas Michelle!



  3. Very sweet. I love all of the Christmas traditions and movies too - I still need to watch Elf, though I've already watched Love Actually a e times this season. Merry Christmas!


I love reading your comments...they're often the highlight of my day!
