    Thanks for sharing your feelings of Christmas and yes I do remember the coldest spring break camping trip ever!

  2. This is such a sweet tradition! I love that it’s meaningful and fun for the grandkids too. Great idea!

  3. This is such a great activity you did together. Wow, when they’re older that will be a family heirloom.

  4. Love your story! And a great reminder that imperfect moments are the memory makers!! What a special family tradition. ❤️

  5. “I learned as my family grew that traditions though a constant celebration, must evolve.” such an important point as I keep wanting to have the exact same joyous experiences but I need to be attentive to how my family feels and how they experience those things to make sure everyone is building happy memories. I’m really wrestling with how to balance it with “However, meaningful traditions intentionally celebrated bring order to holiday celebrations and help soothe young hearts.”. The driving around to see lights and decor is also a big thing for us. I try and fill it with as much fun as I can but the young ones always make things change so I try to roll with it

    1. The traditions themselves may evolve, but the act of intentional celebration does not. For us activities that seemed hollow as the family grew and evolved were replaced with new traditions. It’s the intentional acts of togetherness that are most important, rather than the activities.
