When the kids were little we used to set up villiages with cotton snow on our table for Chrisrmas. We have many Dept 56 villages to start your family a new tradition

Pillow pairs 🖤 Because we all need a reason to get more than one new Holiday throw pillow! 〰️ How did you spend the holidays when you were growing up? 〰️ The Sound of Music will always reminds of my Nana. We would spend Christmas Eve at her house for dinner and presents. Every year she would fill her home with Christmas wind up music displays, those house villages and my Grandpa would set up his train set that would travel through a styrofoam cup tunnel.
Christmas morning would be at my house with our family. I remember my Mom’s ceramic tree with colorful lights, a delicate wood German nativity pyramid always on our dining table and her egg casserole. We would save the stockings until my Grandparents arrived for breakfast and then open those all together and spend the afternoon playing with our gifts.
Now as a parent I smile and wonder what things my daughter will remember about me or associations she ties to her memories of me when she’s grown up. .
