Our favorite family traditions are centered around the holidays. We love to decorate the house and make it feel cozy for fall and Christmas. Kimberly loves to cook and bake so we also enjoy lots of good food during the holidays. Ian enjoys helping in the kitchen so it has been really fun to share this tradition with him. This year he really loved the Christmas trees and Christmas lights. We visit a lot of family around the holidays and also try to make time to have special friends over. We enjoy having friends from Grant’s work at the church over at our home. We hope to bless them with good food and presents and to feel God’s love at this special time of the year. A new tradition that we started this past year is working in the garden. Ian enjoys gardening and watering the plants. Last year we planted flowers, roses and a blueberry bush. This year we hope to add more vegetables to the garden. Gardening is a great way to spend time together outdoors.
