I used to beg my grandma to tell me stories of her childhood... over and over.
I've kept every note/card I've ever received.
I go back and frequently look at the thousands (possibly millions) of pics I've taken over the years.
My favorite gifts do not cost anything at all. They're the homemade kind.
I drink pumpkin spice lattes. Simply because that's what you do in the fall.
You get the point.
So. It's no surprise that I am quite glamoured by traditions.
And you better believe I'm giddy to continue and begin traditions with our little family. Especially Christmas.
But, we recently participated in our first little family tradition.
Going to the pumpkin patch. Walter's Pumpkin Patch. So.Much.Fun.
Of course, it will be even more fun when Lyla actually understands what's going on and why Mommy and Daddy dress her in silly Halloween outfits and constantly plop her on the "perfect pumpkin" for the "perfect photo op".
Who am I kidding? She'll never understand those things.
But the traditions will live on. Even if they are only to humor Mom. :)
Can't wait to add more to our list of family traditions!
