    Our favorite holiday tradition is making hot chocolate, grabbing donuts and driving down Christmas Tree lane....listening to Christmas music.
    Dan and I started this tradition when we were in college. I would come visit him during our holiday break and he would take me.
    Now that we have a son its all 3 of us...my favorite part is seeing our tradition evolve with our growing family.
