Fun Food Friday
Just before Thanksgiving, my husband and I talked about beginning holiday traditions of our own with our children. I told him about this website that I had found where we could go pick our own produce. We just click on our state and location within the state. The site gives information on local farms where we can go pick our own produce. I was very excited because what a great field trip for kids of all ages, even the grown ones. Lyla can learn about where food comes from. Although, knowing her, I may have to bring one of those fruit and vegetable washing solutions because she may eat the pickings as she goes.
As if picking your own produce wasn't exciting enough, the website even has a link to find a farm to go pick out our Christmas tree. YES our very own (natural) Christmas tree!! What a wonderful tradition to have - go pick out our Christmas tree.....at the farm! Talk about Made in the USA. That's more like made in my backyard! Oh and it gets better. During our conversation, my husband's expression changed. It turns out he has never had a natural Christmas tree, but always wanted one. He thought it was so funny that I mentioned starting this new tradition with our children when, in fact, it would be a new tradition for all of us. It may seem that God works in mysterious ways, but as we pay attention, the only mystery is what's coming next.
What holiday traditions do you have? I would love to hear (or read) your thoughts.
