The holidays are all about family traditions right? I remember when Ethan was born I was trying to think of holiday family traditions to start. I want the memories of holidays for our children to be a special part of their childhood. We do have a few, but it was difficult thinking up of some. The best way to find new ideas is to share with other moms.
Starting this Friday I will have a weekly 'Take Time to Share Your Christmas Traditions' meme. I will be posting a linky for everyone to link their post for the week and I will keep each theme open until the next Friday when the next theme will start. I know that we are all pretty busy during the holidays so I want to keep it open for a whole week for those who may have forgotten and still want to participate.
I hope that lots of you will participate that have blogs. And if you don't have a blog, please don't think I'm leaving you out, just post a comment after my post each week and I'll be sure to read those as well.
Here's the schedule so you can start thinking and preparing your posts ahead of time. Be sure to grab my button to add to your blog to spread the word to others to participate. Also each week when you do a post add the button into your post so that people can click on it and will be directed to my blog here and they can read the others in the linky as well.
Feel free to be as elaborate or simple as you'd like in your post :-)
