Somethings I will never give up, and pass on to the boys, is having a Polish supper on Christmas Eve with kielbasa and pierogis. Thanksgiving should always include green bean casserole and fall fruit salad. And ham is eaten on Christmas.
This year I'm going to introduce a "12 Days of Christmas" Calender, which will give us something Christmas related to do the 12 days before Christmas. This year I plan on including making cookies, babbka, and pierogis in our calender. Another tradition that we're starting this year is getting a new Christmas movie every year and watching it on Christmas Eve.
We recently decided that we're going to have a pizza night every Wednesday.
And when the boys are a little older we are going to have a 'sleepover' night, where the boys get to watch a movie and sleep in bed with us.
I hope when G and Z are older they will look back and have happy memories of our special traditions and time spent together the same way I look back on my childhood and smile.

Here is a glimpse into our morning.
I know it would be easy to assume that I only portray our good, happy moments in pictures and video clips on here. But our days are actually like this 99% of the time. These two amazing boys are so happy and content. I wake up every morning to giggles and, if I actually get out of bed when they first wake up, smiles. I usually lay in bed listening to them until the yells of protest begin, and then get them out of bed. There are no smiles by that point.
There are so many times during our day that I look at them and am amazed. How did this happen? How is it that I have not only the cutest boys in the world, but also the happiest?
Every where we go I get comments about how happy and well-behaved they are. I have moments when I feel that motherhood is so overwhelming, and to hear people applaud us for how wonderful our children are helps to reassure me that we're doing something right.
