Growing up I remember my mom baking for the neighbors; cranberry bread and GORP (type of trail mix) are the two items I remember most. p.s. I tried this one year…our neighbors didn’t seem as excited as I remember neighbors being when I was young. Talk about disappointment! Anyway, she’d box them up with cute ribbon and gift tags. Family Christmas traditions have always intrigued me because everyone does it different. The hubs’ family has an oversized coloring book they’ve colored in every Christmas Eve for the last 30 years (pictures below). I think it has seen better days, but dang what a fun memory to have and to look back on. This year is the last page of the book, who knows what we’ll do next year…

What are your Christmas time traditions? Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Decorate gingerbread houses? What about wearing matching pajamas? One day the hubs and I will start traditions for our own family, here are some that piqued my interest (thank you Pinterest).
