Everyone has their holiday traditions. Some times the tradition changes with time or things get added, but it still something you look forward to every year. When I lived with my parents, every Christmas morning meant cinnamon rolls and presents and dumping out the stocking to see all the stuff inside. Then we'd all gather for a Christmas dinner of fried oysters. We don't do the present and stocking thing any more, but we still do the fried oysters with the family. Chris and I have started our own tradition of cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning, just the two of us, and we've added boiled shrimp to the dinner menu.

I am thankful that this tradition has gone unchanged. I am thankful that the weather is cooperating this year so that we can all be together. I am thankful for the many blessings in my life.

Happy Holidays to all!
