Family Traditions…



Does your family have any traditions?
The PAXfamily takes weekly Sunday photos.

How cool will it be to look back on all of them when everyone is all  grown up??



How sweet are they??

Not only will it be neat to see how everyone has changed over the weeks/months/years, but which carriers are used and which are recycled year after year.

What are your family’s most “reached for” carriers?

  1. Christmas Web has been a part of our families Christmas celebration for the past 20 years. As our children grew older we found that their interest in Christmas morning waned and the sparkle in their eyes was gone. So in 1992 Nita and I introduced the Christmas Web. When our two teen-aged children came down Christmas morning they found a Magic Wand in their socks that had for years been hung at the fireplace mantel. Attached to the wand was a piece of yarn (70 yards of yarn) that wound through the house into the front and back yard and ended in a closet or cabinet which held their special gift from one of Santa’s elves, an elf who had been looking out for them for the past year and knew of their desire for this special gift.

    The Christmas Web continued as each of our children got married and as they had children. We now have seven Magic Wands (the 40 year old children will not give up their magic wands) each with 70 yards of yarn winding through our house every Christmas Morning making getting a cup of coffee an acrobatic achievement before the winding begins. The Christmas Web has become the signature event of the Grinkmeyer’s Christmas day activities. It’s my hope that families around the world will come to enjoy the excitement that we have for the past 20 years.

    As grandparents Nita and I have found that The Christmas Web is brings our family together for the holiday season. Some year’s in-law family conflicts dictate that it doesn’t always happen in our home or exactly on Christmas morning, but for 20 years it’s always happened. When our granddaughters moved to Florida Emma asked, “Poppie will we still be able to do the string thing?” “Yes Emma we always be able to do the string thing.”
