Every Christmas Eve we have a family tradition that means the more to us then any gifts: cooking for a local homeless shelter. We work as a family to peel, cut and cook our famous sweet potato casserole (with pineapples and cinnamon) in big containers that we take over while still hot. We have a group that works together serving and the others cooking. It is a family activity that we do together and our sons get the gift of learning to give back to their community. We also make decisions on what charities we give to as another family activity.
With all the focus on holiday gift shopping it is important to take a break to think about ways you can give back this holiday season. Today is Giving Tuesday and many organizations and individuals are sharing how they are giving back. Here are some posts with links highlighting their favorite charities.
Welcome to the new and improved TechMamas.com website! My old blog was on Typepad and I just finished a redesign to move to WordPress.

I am so glad you are visiting – stay awhile and check out my tech categories as I cover the family technology and share my personal perspective. I also hope to hear from you with comments or your own tech observations.
