The girls were headed to Nonna’s house today to make cookies and gingerbread houses so I thought BAKE would be a fun message-of-the-day. On the way to my mom’s house, Ellie and I talked about traditions and how we will are working to start new traditions during the holidays as well as carry on some that I did as a little girl. I’m not sure how much she understood the word “tradition” per se but she definitely understood that I used to make cookies, we made cookies last year, we’re doing it this year and next year we will get together and do it again too. One thing I do know that Ellie and Frances both understand is the meaning and importance of family. We are so blessed to have so much family to celebrate with this year.

If you missed a message, get them all here. Don’t forget to PIN so you’ll have them next year.
