    Hi Tara,

    I really like the sound of the egg cracking tradition! I had a question:

    So I'm trying to imagine exactly what you mean. Do you clunk them together like a toast? Or do you roll them at each other like marbles? Or something else?

    Thanks for sharing this--I think we'll try it next year.

    We have family night every Friday. We order out for dinner and then play dungeons and dragons or board games. It's fun!

    Hi there! smile

    It's like a toast. It really is a lot of fun, albeit short-lived (the whole thing takes about a minute). But everyone looks forward to it every year.

    Last year, I forgot to bring the eggs - they were sitting, nicely dyed and labeled, in my fridge at home. I realized this when we were an hour from our home and a few minutes from my folks' place. Luckily Wawa (our local convenience store chain) sells hardboiled eggs in 2-packs. I bought a bunch of packs and we wrote people's names on them with a sharpie. These are the lengths to which we go to continue the egg cracking tradition. crazy [I did remember the eggs this year! *whew*]

    I like the egg cracking tradition, it sounds fun!

    We have Friday family night too! But we usually go to a movie or watch one at home.

    I saw a t-shirt online somwhere that Lorel might appreciate.

    It says: That's how I roll, and has a picture of a die for D&D.

    I was going to pick it up for myself but I give it a virtual toss over to Lorel....here you go.......

    My husband and the kids have breakfast at a restaurant with the in-laws every Sunday morning while I sleep in--I love this tradition smile

    Another tradition we started last year was to take a 1 mile walk around a pond near the playground by our house each week night after supper. It's a wonderful time to relax and talk. I am so excited this year that my youngest (now 21 months) will finally be able to walk it and not be in the stroller. We just need the snow to melt so we can start up again.

    My mom's entire side of the family gets together the first Sunday in December and bakes cookies all day. Last year we had 22 different types of cookies. It is great, you are then able to bring a cookie tray to every holiday party you attend. It is also a lot of fun now that DS2 is getting a little older, as we have not had any little kids for a long time.

    My dd and I have to get early all week because of school, so on Sundays we stay in bed until 11:00 or 11:30 and watch cartoons together, then we get up and make pancakes for brunch.
