I can't let a Christmas go by without documenting our family traditions, especially since we are in a season of transition as Empty Nesters, with adult children and; our traditions may change or disappear all together as the season changes.
One tradition that I assume we will eventually retire is the family Christmas card. I think card sending, in general, is on the decline, as we receive fewer and fewer each year. It is also getting harder to come up with fun ideas for our card each year, although, this year was a no-brainer for me.
We didn't make popcorn balls this year, but we did make sure to gather together to decorate cut sugar cookies. I made far fewer this year and I'm sure we will still be eating them until Valentines Day, but it is one of the traditions that the kids don't seem ready to let go just yet.
