A Spin On Our Holiday Tradition

Maybe more than Christmas itself, I love the act of decorating our tree.  It’s one of my favorite things, and we still have more to do. This year, the kids went upstate to cut our 9 foot tree: River picked the beauty out, and I worked on re-arranging the apartment to make space for it…

We did something different this year: We decorated early in the morning with coffee, hot cocoa and music. Oak is intrigued by Christmas this year, and River wrote the list for both of them, so doing it while they were bright eyed and rowdy was an entirely new experience.

As the kids get older, I love watching how traditions take shape, and learning what I’d like to keep and let go from my own childhood.
