So, with a house full of girls (yeah, there are boys here too, but they're out numbered) there's a lot of picture taking, hair-doing, and modeling. In fact, it's tradition that whenever someone buys something new they MUST model it ... We have a required fashion show. This is especially fun at birthdays and the beginning of the school year.

I tell you this because I'm currently watching my girls modeling their summer wear. Why? They just got excited for summer to come, so they're trying on swim suits, shorts, more swimsuits .... In fact, right now they're practicing their Miss America waves :) ... I love our fashion show tradition. Do you have any traditions that aren't related to holidays?

  1. What an awesome tradition Denalee. Our family just loves to gather, it doesn't matter where, but at least twice a month we get together for dinner.

  2. I am with them. I'd kill for summer right now. If I had a bathing suit, I'd be trying it on too.

    We have a tradition that every Saturday night is wrestle night with dad. I never win.

  3. Oh man I am right with them, I wish so badly that it was summer!!

  4. I love that tradition. Sounds just perfect.
