We have certain little traditions in our family, as Im sure everyone does.
Some of ours are - most weekends we have pancakes for breakfast. This used to be on Saturdays but now that our kids play sport its usually on a Sunday. And now Little Miss Sunshine is usually the one cooking them - because she makes the BEST pancakes!
At Christmas we have an added tradition because Christmas day is also my husbands birthday, so breakfast is always about him - because birthdays are very special in our house. He gets a birthday cake and pressies and then we celebrate Christmas for the rest of the day.
Another tradition we have is for each of our children's 5th birthdays I have made them a photoboard, a snapshot (well a lot of snapshots) of their first 5 years.
I LOVE creating this for them as it gives us a chance to look at the photos and talk, laugh and reminisce.
This weekend I hurriedly put together one for my newest 5 year old....
We always put a current favourite picture in the centre. The kids LOVE seeing themselves right from a newborn through to now.
Here are the photoboards I created for the other two...which are looking a little worse for wear.. with letters missing...
Im thinking that with my eldest turning '10' next year it might be time to put all our favourite photos into a photo book for her.. and start a new tradition....and then maybe we can save them all for their 21st :)
What are your special family traditions?
