Regardless, we had a great time blending his traditions of Christmas with mine. I insisted on shrimp, sausage, cheese, crackers, and Manheim Steamroller (per my family's traditions)
and he taught me how to string cranberries and popcorn (per his)!
Meanwhile, we've begun some of our own new family traditions, even before little girl Warren is born... if you look closely at the tree, you'll see two different, unique-to-the-Boston-Warrens things.
First of all, we have mostly home made ornaments on there right now. We made a bunch together in 12/2009 out of clay and paint. And then last year, I used our saved wedding cards to make some paper ones too! I love them.
But second, did you notice the green glow behind/above the tree? That's right... marry an Event Engineer and your christmas tree gets it's very own LED spotlight. I'm a lucky girl, no?
I can't wait to include baby girl Warren in some of these traditions next year, in whatever way she's capable. She'll be about 8 months old so I'm thinking finger painting more ornaments. Anyone else have ideas on ways to get a little one involved in home made Christmas crafts?
