We had a fun December! This year, more than ever, it was important to us that we intentionally build in traditions that would be sweet memories for all our kiddos.
We waited for the warmest night of the month, which ended up being a balmy 20*, and bundled up the gang to go check out the lights at Storybook Island.
We made it a quick journey through the park since it was so cold, but it was awesome.
After Storybook, we started what was my most favorite part of our Christmas celebration. We took the gang to a bookstore, and each person picked out a book for each other person in our family - to be unwrapped on Christmas Eve.
