Family Traditions

At Patrick's school this week, we got to give a presentation to the class about our family traditions. Once I sat down to think about it, I realized just how many traditions we actually have.

Aeneas, Patrick and I created a poster and then Aeneas and Patrick did a wonderful job sharing with the class what sorts of things we do around the holidays each year. Each of the little presents had pictures of a particular tradition; hiking through the woods to find a tree, sleeping under the Christmas tree the night it goes up, Santa coming on Christmas morning, calling everyone on Christmas day to wish them a Merry Christmas, having a birthday party for Jesus and of course the annual fondu feast!

I made chocolate fondu and Justin passed out the goodies. We had the kids dip marshmallows and bananas into it. Everyone loved it (we caught a couple teachers taking a little taste). The class left school wound up and chocolate faced! I am sure the parents were so thrilled.

Merry Christmas Ms. Cash's Kindergarten Class!


  1. What a wonderful project! You do have many traditions! :)

  2. what a great idea for the class to each share their traditions. and you are brave - we have yet to let the kids sleep under the tree!
