Friday Favorites- Favorite Holiday Traditions

Oh Friday! How I love thee!! Today, I'm sharing my FAVORITE holiday traditions that we share with our little family of 4. I LOVE this time of the year and the traditions that we have started make it all that more special!

Eek, will you just look at how little they are?!?!

Holiday Lights

We started this a few years ago-- we get in jammies or comfy clothes, stop at Starbucks, grab a cookie and hot cocoa and then drive around different neighborhoods, looking at all the lights while listening to Christmas music. It's my absolute FAVORITE!!

Sugar Cookies

Another favorite tradition is to make and bake sugar cookies and then decorate them with loads of frosting and sprinkles!

Gingerbread house

We love to make a gingerbread house too during this time of the year

 Jolly Holiday Lights

Our town has a wonderful light display, with contributions going towards Make a Wish Foundation. It is fun to drive through and listen to Christmas music. It's been the same pretty much every year, but we've made it a must do on our list!

Christmas Jammies

I always get the girls Christmas pajamas. While I'm not sure if it necessarily qualifies as a "tradition" it's something we do every year and make sure obviously, to get a picture of them in front of the Christmas tree!

Christmas cards

I love sending out Christmas cards. It's a tradition that I'm sure won't quit any time soon, even as the kiddos get older!

Last year's

Elf on the Shelf

Yes, we are THAT family who does Elf on the Shelf. I really love doing it (most of the time). We don't do crazy things with Elf, just mostly move him. Sometimes, he does some cute things...

Visiting Santa

Every year, we always make the trip to some mall or other place to visit Santa. The girls bring their lists and share it with him.

I'd love to hear some of YOUR family's favorite holiday traditions! Share below!! Happy Friday! Enjoy the weekend!
