One of our traditions when putting up our Christmas tree, is each child gets a new "special" ornament every year. They get to pick whatever they want. Me & Emma (my 3 yr old) have made Rice Krispie treats together last year for Thanksgiving & Christmas, and she has so much fun doing it, that is 1 thing that we will be doing every year, and Mady will be old enough to help soon.
When I was younger, my mom was a single mom, so it was just me and her on holidays. We always did Thanksgiving dinner, and put up our tree and decorations, but then that night, we always went to see a movie. We did the same thing Christmas after we opened gifts. It was a wierd tradition, but something I will never forget. I might not be able to remember what gifts I got for a certain Christmas, but I can sure tell you what movie we went to see!
