    There are several family traditions that are close to my heart though they have passed with time. As a child growing up, my mother volunteered to decorate our church for Christmas. It became a family tradition for her, my sister and myself. It gave us great joy to see the looks on all the faces at the services on the first Sunday of Advent. As I sit here thinking of my sister who passed recently, I remember as children we would decorate as you do the weekend after Thanksgiving. Each weekend night we would get a fire going in the fireplace, turn on only the Christmas lights and listen to Christmas music most of the night. Many a Christmas eve would end up with my sister and I sleeping on the floor in front of the fireplace. Those are memories that I will always have to cherish now that she is gone.

    You have a wonderful set of traditions for your girls to hold to their heart for years to come.
