This was our first Thanksgiving since our family expanded with sweet little Emet. It was also our first Thanksgiving back in Florida - since we moved back. We've been so excited to begin implementing traditions and things to look forward to each year. This year we decided to have a slow morning with breakfast, coffee, and snuggling together as we watched the parade. To enhance this tradition we purchased some cozy pjs to spend the first half of the day in. And… we are going to use these again when we jump into the car to look at Christmas lights later in the season! Yay! I can't wait to share more of our Christmas traditions with you that we do this year too. 

This Thanksgiving, there was something a little extra quiet and calm that was completely wonderful. I'm looking forward to experiencing all of the holidays for the first time with our growing family and creating new traditions.

What are some of your favorite family traditions for the holidays?
