I love love Christmas! When I was growing up my mom would make the christmas season so fun and special. I remember chopping down a tree at our local tree farm and inviting our friends over to help decorate the huge tree we had dragged home. I also have fond memories of it snowing, then me and my sister would stay home from school and bake lots of holiday cookies. I am so thankful that my mom taught us what christmas was really about. Its not just a commercial “consumer” holiday its about making memories and spending time with the people you love the most. I hope that I pass this christmas “spirit” on to my son. 🙂
Last night I put up my second christmas tree…..it’s a long story but the reason I had to replace my tree was because one of the plastic legs couldn’t handle the weight of the tree with all my ornaments and it fell over. So I bought a new sturdier tree with snow covered branches yesterday and I couldn’t happier with it. I got to decorate my tree all over again and it looks better then ever. 🙂
Who doesn’t love baileys at this time of year?! 😉 I knew baileys would be the perfect friday night cocktail to decorate the tree with last night. I usually just have my baileys with ice or hot chocolate but last night we mixed it up with bourbon and milk and it was sooo good. A must try this holiday season! What are your favourite christmas traditions?
