#10 - JenniferOne Christmas when I was a baby, my family's landlord brought over homemade cinnamon rolls as a holiday gift. My mom got the recipe and ever since then on Christmas Eve, after the kids go to bed, my mom makes cinnamon rolls for Christmas morning breakfast. Now that there are grandkids in the picture and we have Christmas at my house, Mom still brings all the ingredients with her (from MI to IL) and makes the cinnamon rolls in my kitchen. They are so good that I look forward to them as much as the giving and receiving of gifts.
#11 - Vicki Our tradition is that the day after Thanksgiving, while Noemi is out shopping and we avoid the crowds like the plague - which might be kind of true, we put up the tree, decorate, listen to Christmas music, have a fire, and eat some yummy food (left over turkey) to kick the season off.
(For all of you middle children who are thinking that me picking Vicki is unfair...I'll have you know that I had one of Adriah's friends pick 2 numbers between 1 and 32. She picked 10 and 11. the end.)
For all of you that are super excited to be teaching your kids about Christmas and Advent here's how you can get your own copy.
AMAZON it's $4.99
LIFEWAY Christian Book stores it's ONLY $2.99 (Crazy good deal!)
Here's the blurb I found on their website:
The Family Book of Advent by Carol Garborg helps small children grasp the true meaning of Christmas. This devotional will help you re-create for your children the memories you have of counting down the days until Christmas. It is a hands-on devotional that draws families together through Scripture, questions, and simple activities that progressively unfolds the story of our Savior’s birth.
I'm soooo excited to start reading it with my kids...thank you Carol!
