Christmas Lodge

Every year after Thanksgiving we start getting ready for Christmas. One thing we enjoy doing together as a family is watching Christmas movies. This year we started early with Christmas Lodge from Thomas Kinkade, this movie is very uplifting and places an importance on faith and family. It's about leaving the hustle and bustle that the world has to offer for family. What's not to like about a snow covered lodge in the mountains at Christmas time surrounded by a loving family.

When Mary takes a weekend trip to the mountains she hears a cry for help from a little girl. Mary is helping her get back home when she realizes her home is the Christmas Lodge. As a little girl, Mary spent every Christmas at the lodge with her family and had so many great memories of it. She takes it upon herself to help Jack, the owner, to restore it as it once was. She wants to make Christmas special one more time for her grandfather. Mary has been unlucky in love in the past but the lodge project renewed her faith in life and she falls in love with Jack. Once again her family celebrates Christmas at the Christmas Lodge.

You can watch the trailer on IMDB.

We are an active duty Army family currently experiencing our 5th long deployment. Because Daddy has been away several years, it has been difficult to establish "traditions" all together. After the birth of our second child, my husband went on his 3rd year long deployment and was gone for Christmas again. I decided that year that we would begin making gingerbread houses as a family tradition so that the children would ALWAYS have something fun and exciting to look forward to as well as share with daddy. This year will be our 5th Christmas without daddy and again, we will be making our gingerbread houses to share with each other and him all the way in Afghanistan! This year I also want to start watching a movie or two Christmas Eve as a "new" family tradition. Now that our youngest is 3, his attention span is long enough :) Hope we win :)

We give each child and ourselves an ornament each year.

Each year we put the ornaments on in year order, talking about things that happened that year.

One of our traditions is lighting Advent candles and having nightly devotions.

Ever since I was little I have gotten a stocking full of interesting things, not just candy. An orange is always at the bottom. My mom gave me a stocking until she died at 58. I plan on giving my kids stockings forever, too. It is truly my favorite part of Christmas because of all the little surprises. The stockings are always filled in the middle of the night when all are asleep. Santa always eats the cookies and soymilk we leave out by the stockings. We usually leave some carrots for the reindeer, too.
