I have always said Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday. As much as I love the season of love, the Christmas holidays are a very close second! I love our family traditions so much! I look forward to them each and every year. I also look forward to creating many many more traditions and memories in the years to come. I hope you enjoy this special edition of The Sweet Life!
Growing up, we always put up our Christmas tree on Thanksgiving! Over the years, I've had to modify this tradition, but we usually get our tree up over the Thanksgiving weekend. The kids enjoy a photo shoot in front of the tree and we always plan on a trip to see Santa!
We always take a drive to look at Christmas lights during the holiday season. Since moving to Georgia, we also enjoy Holiday in the Park at Six Flags Over Georgia and strolling along on Marietta Square. This year, I'm looking forward to ice skating and the new festivities on Marietta Square!
Every year, the kids and I take an entire day to bake yummy treats and build a gingerbread house!! This day is usually capped off with a Christmas movie and hot chocolate. We leave some of the treats out for Santa, along with a letter to him!
I have already started planning our Christmas festivities for this year. I am most looking forward to our baking day!! Although it may make a mess, we are also making memories!
Merry Christmas from Sweet Olivia. Look right here on the blog later this week for our Christmas gift baskets! :)
