It seems that as the years go by, without much effort on our part, traditions are beginning to fall into place. There are the obvious traditions of celebration this time of year, the tree and stockings and all the trimmings.

We enjoy the tradition of baking favorite cookies with Grandmas,

of building gingerbread houses with friends,

and of Christmas Theatre. This year, we joined Grandpa Joe for a children's theatre production of Dickens' A Christmas Carol at Drury Lane Theatre.

Dinner at the theatre was a surprise for the kids, as was a visit with Santa.

It was a wonderful way to share the holiday with Grandpa Joe, and a favorite gift for the kids. A memory to long outlast any plaything, and a tradition we look forward to continuing next year.
