Thanksgiving Traditions

I can tell you about a handful of Christmas traditions my family had growing up, however I can’t think of one Thanksgiving tradition we had other than eat the normal Thanksgiving traditional foods.

Immediately, once i started my own family, I knew I wanted to have some Thanksgiving traditions for my family. Although, we haven’t come up with much, I thought i would share our family’s Thanksgiving traditions.

  1. We make pies the night before Thanksgiving; Pumpkin, Lemon meringue, and Chocolate pies.
  2. On Thanksgiving, we eat a light breakfast, and snack throughout the day until the main feast which we serve around 4:00 in the afternoon.
  3. We play games, either board games/card games or video games, together as a family.
  4. We get outside, we usually take a walk to burn off all the food we have eaten.
  5. The day after Thanksgiving we put up our Christmas tree.

That’s it, those are our family’s Thanksgiving traditions. What are your family’s traditions?

Happy Easter 2018

he is risen

We are having a very relaxing Easter this year.

My daughter woke us up at 1 o’clock this morning, throwing up, so our Easter isn’t going exactly how we had planned, but that’s ok. We are taking it easy and just enjoying each other’s company.

Sadly, i didn’t get around to taking any pictures of the kids Easter baskets this morning or any pictures of them searching for eggs around the house… but i did get a few pictures this week of some of the Easter things we have done.

If you follow me on Instagram, earlier this week i shared that we “egged” a neighbors house…

We have also been working on Easter themed word searches, which is my 10 year old’s favorite thing to do…

We went to a local country supply store, to visit the baby chicks… Lincoln was the most obsessed with them and cried having to leave the store.

We went to a Panaderia (which means bakery in Spanish) for some Mexican Sweet Bread, which is a must for our Easter morning. My husband grew up always have bread and honey on Easter, so we are continuing on with this tradition with our own children.

My husband eats his bread with honey, as per his childhood tradition. However, all the children prefer to eat the bread without the honey.

This week, we also went to a egg hunt in our town. Lincoln enjoyed finding the eggs.
