|Savannah Marie. 1 day old. Loving this hat!|
I sat back trying to recall some of my favorite traditions from my childhood and just a few that I came up with are:
- Sunday Mass and then coming home to browse the Sunday ads, read the comics and relax as a family
- Singing "Happy Birthday" and blowing out the candles twice. Why do we do this, I don't know. This was a tradition already instilled in my family when I was born (#6 of 6, remember) but it's one of my favorites because in a big family birthdays are your day!
- Christmas morning eggs and bacon! This was big b/c we never had hot breakfast, just a bowl of cereal but on Christmas it was hot! Even bigger was, wait for it, MY DAD MADE IT! ::Gasp:: This is huge! I know some dads do the cooking/baking but this was the ONLY time my dad ever, ever made us food. It was a special day (more many reasons, obviously) and I will always remember it!
Happy Sunday! Don't forget to rest up, another week of Lent starts in the morning! :)
