I love traditions. I especially love the ones around this time of year. And as my kids are getting older I’m learning just how precious they are, and it makes my heart happy when one or both of the kids ask to do something that we’ve done year after year.
One of those things is making our favorite almond barks treats and sprinkling them with Christmas confetti. Yesterday I melted the chocolate and the kids went to town, possibly getting more on their fingers than the actual crackers and cookies. But we laughed and smiled and sampled and marked another tradition in the books for this season.
I soak them all up. They are growing up before my eyes and I hope they never tire of these traditions.
