I am freaking out about Christmas gifts for the kids and family traditions. I really have all of my shopping for them done, but I want to give them something special each year and start a family tradition. I figured we better start now if we want to do something like that. I decided that I want to get them each a special hardcover book each year and write them a note in it and date it. Sounds easy enough. I got that idea from a book I got for Lilah, "My Little Girl". I am unhappy with the book I picked out for Jonathan. I think I am going to return it. I want more of a classic, and something to symbolize where they are at in their life. I picked a Usborne book of stories for boys, It's cute, Joanthan will like it, but I don't feel it is special enough. We spend forever at Borders picking it out, adn I already want to return it. What about his first 2 Christmases? I don't want him to feel leftout, I think I should backdate 2 books. But I also want to get them special ornaments each year so they will have some for their tree when they grow up ( boo whoo). I would need to backdate that too. And Christmas pajamas, I want to get them pajamas too. I want to make a Birthday Cake for Jesus too, my mom always does that. This is so hard. What to do, what not to do. What book to get . . . I want Christmas to be special for them every year, like it was for me. I know it's not about presents at all, but I do want to start some traditions, and I don't want to wait until they are out of the house to do it. Any book ideas? I am stumped and don't want to leave Borders in tears. I want to do the book thing at least. What are your family traditions for Christmas?
