Family heritage is so rich and important to me. I want our children to learn about their ancestors and increase their love for them. Be inspired by their stories of courage and faith. We want to pass that legacy on to our children.

 Our little #ShermStyle fam does this by reminiscing and recalling stories of our ancestry, participating in activities and eating food that link us to the countries we originate from (Sweden, England (Wells), Japan.) We also have many traditions and celebrations unique to our family of three, some that originated from my childhood, and some even before then that my mother and father carried over.

Ric's mother is Japanese and around the holidays they enjoy a traditional Japanese meal. We decided to adopt this yummy celebration as our Christmas Eve dinner, so we can always remember and embrace this important side of heritage too. 

Brooke Scheurn caught my vision and helped capture these memories for us. I can't wait to see how this grows and hope to see many more little faces and feet at our table throughout the years.

I need to give a shoutout to our friends who let us borrow their authentic yukata kimono and gi directly from Japan. Her husband served an LDS mission there and brought these home for himself and future wife (how thoughtful, huh?) Hawke's outfit is his personal authentic kimono he received as a gift, from Japan as well. Thanks for humoring my ideas and helping make this happen, we love you!
