Christmas traditions

We wanted to share with you some of our family Christmas traditions. The night that we decorate the Christmas tree, after we're all done, we turn off all the lights (except for the ones on the tree!), turn on some Christmas music, and enjoy a bowl of ice cream as we sit at the tree. It's a neat time to spend together, and a sweet memory of mine from childhood. Johnny is demonstrating how we eat the ice cream...
The second tradition comes from Johnny's family: Chex mix! Every year we make a big triple batch of Chex mix to munch on as we prepare for the holidays. We also give some away...as much as we have after Johnny eats most of it! :) In fact, at one of my bridal showers before we got married, we got the roaster shown in the picture...not for roasting turkeys, but for making Chex mix. The giver of the gift? Johnny's mom! (She knew why it was on our registry!)

Doesn't it look yummy? It was!
