Tis The Season
Christmas is just around the corner and I am looking forward to it! Not only are we expecting our little boy New Year’s Eve but my little Princess is of an age now where Christmas is even more exciting. She is picking the gifts that she would like to receive ad helping me pick the gifts that we will give to our family and friends.
Last year I tried to explain to her that Christmas is not only about getting presents. She was a little young but I wanted her to understand that there are some families who don’t have a lot of money and won’t be getting a lot of gifts. We went to the store and we picked two toys, one for a little boy and one for a little girl that we would donate to Toys for Tots. This is a tradition I hope to carry on every year to help teach my children that it is just as rewarding to give as it is to receive.
I would love to hear what traditions you have that you share with your children.
