Traditions are important to every person I know or have come into contact with. Our traditions usually come from our families, but once you get married you usually come up with some of your own. One tradition hubby and I do is try to have all our gifts bought by Thanksgiving or the week after and then have them wrapped by this time each year. This year hubbys family was here right after thanksgiving so we sent all that side of the families gifts back with them last week (saves on postage). Usually the pups hang out with me while I wrap, and this year I had a little extra help…
Its been a fun and interesting experience to have our first cat as a married couple. Our Grayson has his own crazy yet sweet personality and he is like a little kid… he has to be in the middle of whatever I do.
I have been having to figure out how to wrap when he gets on the paper and decides to take a nap or use the paper as a scratching area….
Even with something that could seem like an inconvenience I find myself finding it funny and hubby and I giggle at all his antics (except scratching the paper… that’s a bad habit to let start). So the tradition hubby and I started 8 years ago now has a new twist with Grayson in the mist and we have to be okay with things sometime take a little longer when he decided to “help” 🙂
Hope your Christmas season has started out with traditions, old and new, people you care about, and memories that will last.
