THIS IS HOW WE DO New Traditions

Whether it's going to a family members house, serving a unique dish, or giving each other special gifts, every family has its own unique traditions when it comes to Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukah, and other special holidays.

My whole life I have always spent Christmas morning in my house with my family. The last few years we have decided to focus on experiences over gifts and have created a new tradition where we make sure to do something new or fun over Christmas, the last 3 years we have gone to our favorite ski resort for a peaceful weekend filled with love and laughter. We love this new tradition and will continue to do it for the years to come. It is never too late to start a new tradition and Cle Elum is a great place to begin!
