There are so many traditions we've started as a family in the last few years that just make the holiday season so special. One of these is being really intentional about talking with our boys about the birth of Jesus and why we celebrate Christmas. For the past three years we've done Advent Jesse Tree which is a book containing devotions each day of December leading up to Christmas that tell the story of Jesus' coming. There is also an ornament that goes along with each devotion that the kids hang on their own little tree. It's been such an amazing way to talk about the true meaning of the season and have family time together.

What traditions do you do as a family that make the season special?
