List it Tuesday 12/18: Holiday Traditions
Hot chocolate and crochet
Our kiddie menorah and our moose-norah (since our menorah was packed in storage last year, I had to buy one in desperation, and all that was left was a moose menorah. Candles go in the antlers)
Rating our neighbors' Christmas decorations (we are tough critics)
Buckeyes, white chocolate Chex mix, Cheryl's Buttercream Cutout cookies
Latkes (I now remember to dispose the oil properly and not put it back in the pantry, so I won't make brownies like I did a few years ago with what looked like good old pure canola oil)
Exchanges of little gifts
Making cookie houses that will win no Pinterest prizes
Memories of my granddaddy taking us to Kmart and loading up cart after cart after cart of toys, then delivering them to charities (I think he was Santa)
Searching for light and celebrating it, even now, when it seems that it is absolutely nowhere to be found
Being grateful for my family. More this year than ever before.
List it Tuesday will start again January 8 with the (suggested) topic "What's new". Gifts, resolutions, thoughts, perspectives, pounds gained over the holidays, new art materials or techniques you're trying, etc... it's all fair game!
