We aren't very good with traditions...we tend to go with what life throws at us and roll on. Plans were made to broken seems to be a recurring theme in our efforts to start our own little traditions, but when Carli was 15 mths old we started making thank you notes with hand or footprints for our Christmas thank yous and it seems to be the one thing we've managed to keep going for 7 yrs now!
This year Carli picked out snowmen as her Thank You Card. She meticulously painted each snowman on all her cards!
Ava picked out some Strawberries and really enjoyed making all the "seeds" on each strawberry!
Can't say Drew really picked his card art but the girls and I agreed that rubber ducks would be super cute!
Carli at 15 mths old with her first Thank You cards and this year's artwork.
Ava at 20 mths old signing her Thank You card and working hard on her card for this year!
Drew at 6 mths old and at 18 mths old...so far he is not a fan of our tradition!
It's actually getting fun to do this with the girls. They pretty much picked out their project, painted them and decorated them mostly by themselves. They even managed to write all their notes on the back in one day! Can't say the same about their parents ability to get their thank you notes done!
