October Traditions- Halloween Breakfast!

How many of you have stopped to think about how important traditions are? 
Traditions make a family stronger. 
They help build trust 
They create a sense of security.
They build memories
They help us create an identity
They build family unity

So much in our lives these days is temporary, yet regardless of what may happen, your traditions will not change. Family traditions provide something for every person to hold on to and to rely upon. 

My family is HUGE on traditions! 
I once read that you should have at least 1 tradition a month. (bday's count fyi) 
so if you live by that advice, a great idea is to take a piece of paper and label the 12 months. Then write down the traditions you already have established under each month. This will give you a good idea of any large gaps you may have that could use some new traditions. 

When I did this I found a huge gap from March clear until July! That's 5 months!

sooo... to aid you in your quest for traditions I'm starting a "Tuesday Traditions" blog post that I'll post every Tuesday until I decide to quit :)

Today's Tradition Idea:

Halloween Breakfast!

How fun would it be to wake up to THIS Halloween morning?!?!

Or if you're not big on sugar for breakfast... you could always make some 
pumpkin pancakes!!

A themed breakfast or meal is such a "small" tradition in terms of preparation and delivery, yet you can bet that the anticipation and excitement from the kids is going to be equally as grande! And something they will surely look forward to remember for years to come!

Happy Parenting!
