    Throwing the cats into the first snow fall of the winter (came from my family!)

    I want to start Christmas Caroling as a tradition, but so far not yet!

    Green jello with pineapples, cream cheese, and marshmallows (its really good!), corned beef and cabbage for St. Pattys

  • Mexican food on Christmas Eve night

    Also, my son sleeps on his sister's bedroom floor on Christmas eve. They watch "The Grinch Stole Christmas". She is 22 and he is 12 and they've done this for the last 8 or 9 years.

  • The night we put our tree up we got...and now as parents give each child a new ornament to place on the tree. It usually has something to relate to whatever the child is in to at the, basketball, violin, sponge bob etc. Then when grown, the child gets a box of all their ornaments collected over the years to put on their own tree.

  • Sundays are family days and everyone is expected at moms. Not all come but all are invited every sunday.
    The first day of deer season we all get together and camp and cook and make it like a big holiday.
