Since Costco has the Christmas stuff out (and they have for a few weeks now), the winter holidays must be upon us.
Joe and I really don't have any hardcore traditions yet for the holidays - other than usually being somewhere other than home.
It's time we start our own traditions and routines. I don't want Logan to know Christmas is when we visit our folks and only spend 1 out of every three years at home...and we never have a tree up.
So, we made the decision that we're going to a 4 year holiday rotation for now...and we might drop the travel altogether in the future. Not planning on it now, but who knows. We'll be at Joe's folks this year, but then want to do every other Christmas at home. I think we'll be traveling back east more at other times of year (because, really - winter in the NE or Chicago?! Brrr....), so it's not like we won't be back to see our folks...but we really want to have some "home" traditions.
Ah...all we need is a little snow, a fire in the fireplace and I think it's about time to break out the hot buttered rum mix!
