This Holiday season we are reflecting on what to do with our family that doesn't cost money, makes good memories and, if we can remember next year, might just become a tradition. This year our 5 year old and I made a paper chain out of magazine pictures one afternoon to decorate part of the house. He was singing Jingle Bells while we worked but kept switching in the words Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Now it hangs between our kitchen and living room where the clothespins from the laundry line are ready for hanging Holiday cards.
The Holidays are always a mix of emotions, trying to make it special for a growing family, share it with the extended family and have time for friends as well. Hopefully somewhere along there we all find some time to sit back and enjoy the lights.
