So I haven’t been very good about blogging lately and since I’m trying to go in chronological order as much as possible I’m going to try to quickly catch up. Christmas this year was extra special in that it was the first time that Ryan and I have gotten to go back home together since we moved. I was a little worried that Ryan wouldn’t be able to get off for Christmas but thankfully he was. We made it into town and began a fun-filled week of family and Christmas traditions. Some of our traditions are many years old, such as having a birthday cake for Jesus at my parents’ house and making the annual trek to Mt. Olive for Christmas Eve. Some are newer traditions, like eating a great brunch at the Holland’s before swinging back over to the Creech household for our typical steak and chicken and pastry dinner. No, we don’t do the traditional turkey or ham but our dinner sure is good! I often get the question of why we eat that for Christmas with my family. Many years ago my wonderful mom started making me and David’s favorite foods for Christmas dinner and the tradition has stuck. Both families got a special Christmas present this year but that will have to wait for another blog. :) By the way, for any non-Louisianans, heaux heaux heaux translates to ho ho ho. That sign was on the road by my school so we decided to use it on our Christmas cards in honor of our new location.
