Today I am thankful for traditions. I am thankful that Patrick, Nelia, and I will be able to start our own holiday traditions this year. Unfortunately the holidays will be much different this year, but I look forward to finding ways to make them special for us. Sadly we won't be surrounded by very much family, but we are trying our best to stay positive and to make it a fun experience. I know that my brother wouldn't want it any other way. He wouldn't want us to not celebrate - he absolutely loved Thanksgiving and Christmas. For that reason we will be having deviled eggs on Thanksgiving. They were Brent's favorite. Although they won't be nearly as good because he didn't make them, but we will try our best for him:)
So far we have decided on Christmas Eve to make cookies with Nelia to leave out for Santa. We will have my brother in-law and sister in-law here and will get to share this tradition with them. We are still thinking about other traditions, but this is what we have for now.
What holiday traditions do you have?
