The holidays are FULL of traditions! I think that's one of the reasons that I love it so much. Traditions that have been passed down to me and new ones since I've started my own family.
I have a tradition that I started with my boys when "Little Ricky" was born. Each year as I begin decorating my house for Christmas, I have my kids use fabric paint to place their handprints on our treeskirt. Then I write their names and the year using puffy paint.
Now that we have made it to our 7th Christmas, you can really compare the handprints.
