The holidays seem to always be chuck full of family traditions and that’s a wonderful thing! That’s one of my favorites about this time of the year. My family has a few traditions, but for this posting I want to reflect on a really great holiday tradition that my husband grew up with. Can I share with you for a moment? He was raised in an area of Salt Lake City called Sugar House. If you are familiar with the area then you are probably also familiar with the various streets that get all decked out with the Christmas Spirit. If you aren’t familiar with Salt Lake City or these streets then I highly suggested going to Salt Lake and visiting both Wilson and Blaine Avenues around the holiday season! 🙂 At the entrance to this classic neighborhood you will be greeted by signs like this:
Followed by signs with a scripture and painting in each front yard depicting scenes from the Christmas Story.
Over the years the paintings have become quite weathered, but the tradition that carries on and on. Every time a house is sold the signs for that yard comes with the house to be placed out for viewing right after Thanksgiving. I think that it’s such a great tradition and I love to drive through when we happen to be in Salt Lake for the holidays. A few years ago I took zoomed in pictures of each sign. And…
This year Picaboo gave me a photo book, so I bound the pictures in it. The book seriously turned out marvelous and will be a family tradition for years to come! Picaboo has some really unique designs to create your very own photo book. Seriously beautiful page backgrounds and many types of different setups for picture placement. You just download their program (which is so simple to do) and then upload pictures. With Picaboo you can place the pictures in the order you want OR… Picaboo will do it for you! Which makes creating a photo book that much more simple! 🙂
