Let's Chat- Christmas Traditions

I already had my Meal Plan Monday post ready for yesterday so I decided it would be OK to be a little late to the monthly chit chat "let's talk." This month is sharing some of our favorite Christmas Traditions. I linked up with Erika and Andrea to share some of my favorite traditions...

Christmas Tree Hunting

It's only been a few years but we started picking out a real Christmas tree each year. I posted about our 2015 tree HERE. We go and pick one out as a family the weekend after Thanksgiving. It has become one of my favorite traditions we do each year.


I love taking pictures of us decorating for Christmas each year. I love watch the kids grow and even how much our decorations change from year to year. Wyatt and Sloane both LOVE to help decorate! 

Send and receive Christmas Cards

I have mentioned it before but sending Christmas cards is one of my favorite traditions! We also have a special thing we do when we receive the cards...during dinner we pray over the family/s of the cards we get that day. I think December is the ONLY time I like to check the mailbox. Ha ha! 

Wild Lights

Mark and I started going to Wild Lights at the STL Zoo in 2006~~ I can't believe it's been that long. ;) He actually proposed there during this event. #inserthearteyes Over time it has become a family traditions with his family...

Visiting Santa 

I am totally the mom that makes their kid sit on Santa's lap. Every year growing up my mom would take us and my cousin to the mall to see Santa. I still love looking at those pictures from all the years past. I have loved looking back at Wyatt's and Sloane's as well! 

Schumey Christmas

Kelley and I have been friends since Kindergarten. It's such a blessing that our families are so close! When we started having kids we decided instead of exchanging gifts we would always do something fun together! One year we painted plates, spent a day together, and last year we took a carriage ride to see lights. We haven't set our plans for this year but I am already super excited!! 

We have so many more fun Christmas traditions but those are a few of my favorites!! 

I am looking forward to an awesome holiday season!!! 


  1. What a neat idea to pray over families whose cards you get!

    1. Thanks! It's a fun way to start conversations about friends and family with the kids. ;)

  2. What great traditions!! Your family is precious!


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
