-- Dare to... Have Traditions 2011 Edition --

Well, another year of Dare to DIY parties is coming to a close ... *tear*  Thanks again Kim for having us all!  Its been fun getting to know a few new bloggers this year!

This final week is all about family traditions at Christmas.  In the 2009 edition I shared that on Christmas Eve we always have a game night after attending a candlelit Christmas Eve service at church.  And in the 2010 edition I shared our collection of Christmas ornaments that we've been fortunate to collect on our various vacations.

Aside from those, I don't really have many other traditions to share.  Sure, we have our knit stockings that we lay out on Christmas Eve...

Dad reads "Twas the Night Before Christmas" while we each unwrap a new set of jammies...
In fact, last year, which I spent away from my parents, my parents even recorded a version of the story for me to play with my in-laws.

But one of the best traditions is baking Gingerbread Men!  Which we just happened to do last night.  Of course, I burned the bums of the first 2 dozen, but the rest of our little Gingerbread People made it through fairly well :)
