We’re the Benton’s and we currently live in southern Indiana. We recently moved here from Chicago to be near our family while our kids are young! John is a director at a nonprofit helping low-income families and I stay home with our little ones who are and a year and a half-year-old and 3 months!

tell us about your favorite holiday traditions to do as a family...

As a young family, we are trying to start our own traditions while incorporating some of each of our from our childhoods. Something I brought from my childhood was decorating the Christmas tree as a family after Thanksgiving. A new one we are starting is making homemade ornaments! It’s so much fun to look back at what we made the year before.

The holidays have always been my favorite time of the year. It’s always a special time of being with family and being thankful for all that we have. Some of my fondest memories are being with my whole family sitting around the living room sharing what we are thankful for and reading the Christmas story. 

do you have any favorite books or movies that are favorites for this season?

Elf is a classic and always a must watch this time of year!
