Christmas Traditions

This will be the triplets' first Christmas in America, so we wanted to make it really special for them. To avoid the "Is it Christmas yet??" questions, we decided to make an advent chain. We had all the kids write their names on a few links and then each day, that child got the honor of cutting a link.For the third year running, we attended the local Christmas Village - a bunch of little gingerbread-style houses with activities and treats for kids. It's set up right behind our local library, so the kids were seeing it each week as it was being set up and they could hardly wait. The night we went it had been in the mid-70s all day, so we were thinking it was the perfect time to go. When we arrived, the weather had dropped to a very windy 40 degrees, which was quite chilly for this Southern gal. The kids had a great time and lots of memories were made in the 30 minutes that we stayed.
