Last year was our first Christmas in the South and we really didn't do much to celebrate. I had just had a baby by C-section the month before, our stove was not working, and the house was still covered in boxes. We didn't put up a tree, or make a big meal, we mostly sat around, watched the kids open a few presents, and thanked God that we had SURVIVED the past year!
But, really I love the Holiday season! I'm used to cold December's with a little snow and a lot of Christmas in the air. We would all get dressed up in our warmest coats and hunt down the best tree at the tree farm. Or go drive through one of the coolest lights displays around. But now we look outside and see the green of a Southern Christmas and we begin to make some NEW family traditions!
One tradition that we are keeping and brought with us is the Truth in Tinsel e-book!! This really is the perfect e-book to help your little ones focus on Christ this season, when there are so many things that are turning their little hearts to think of gifts and sweets!
We are planning to set up our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving, and then spend the month of December decorating it with our Truth in Tinsel ornaments! Then, by Christmas the tree will be complete and remind us of all the gifts God has given us through His word that we can celebrate this Christmas. If you'd like to follow along I have started a Pinterest board, where I'll add pictures through out December of our progress!
