December Traditions

Each December, our family enjoys many comforting traditions.  These are both little and large.  Meals, notes, a plate of cookies, crafts, stories, songs, and most importantly, togetherness.  We cherish an afternoon with my parents (if all are healthy), looking at photos of Christmases past, reading Grandpa's witty Christmas tales, and sharing cookies and cards with loved ones.  We cherish these simple gifts of our time and love (and what we have on hand).  Here are some photos of our favorite December adventures from 2015.
