I'm linking up this week with Becky for her Christmas link up. This week is all about Christmas traditions.
Our Christmas traditions start the weekend after Thanksgiving when we go and find our Christmas tree. We bring the tree home and set it up and while we decorate it we drink hot chocolate, well the twins had regular milk (but next year). We pull out all of our decorations and set them up around the house and talk to the twins about baby Jesus and Christmas.
We do all things Christmas, bake cookies, watch Christmas movies, listen to Christmas music all of December. This year we also decided to make the salt dough ornaments that I have been seeing every year.
Now every year hubby's family heads up to Whistler, BC to enjoy Christmas. So we pack everything (Christmas presents included), pack a huge trailer and head out. This will be my 7th year going. Hub's family has been going for like 15 years. This means we ALWAYS have a white Christmas and we get to ski, shop and play in the snow.
Seriously look at where we get to celebrate Christmas!

We spend 1 glorious week up there before coming home. This year I am hauling every single one of the twins presents up to Whistler (including their kitchen) because well just because we aren't home doesn't mean Santa can't visit the condo.
