It’s a Family Tradition…

Don’t you love traditions? I do! Christmas time brings the best traditions I think.

My favorite one that we have, is our ornament tradition. It started with my grandparents. Each year everyone gets an ornament that represents them that year. Then as the children get their own tree, they get all their childhood ornaments for their tree.

This is a tradition we have continued as I have had kids. I have such a blast each year unwrapping the ornaments and seeing the kids faces light up. “That one is mine!”

Each one brings back a flood of memories of that year, why we bought that child that ornament, and the significance behind it.
