I come from a family that valued traditions. We would do certain things for certain holidays every year and it was always something to look forward to. Now that I have my own little family, we are trying to make our own traditions.
One thing we love to do is put up our Christmas tree. Usually we buy a real tree from the tree farm, but this year we put up an artificial one. I always love looking at the ornaments because it’s like a walk down memory lane!
Here are a few of my favorites:
The ornament I bought during my engagement scavenger hunt!
A Minnie-mouse from my first trip to Disney when I was 6
A couple of cute snowmen we got our first year married from his aunt
A beautiful angel given by a good friend from her time in Burundi
An adorable onesie ornament given to the boys last year
One of my all-time favorites- this adorable baby carriage given to me when I was a baby
An ornament made last year by their gramma to commemorate their first Christmas. They were sure chunkers, huh?
One of my dad and me when I was little
A classic old truck we bought last year at the tree farm. Makes you feel nostalgic just looking at it…
The boys had a lot of fun looking at all the ornaments and putting them on the branches. Though they pretty much would stick about 5 on the same branch until it couldn’t hold anymore and all would fall down.
And they loved putting on the Santa hat and saying “Ho Ho Ho”!
Here’s to a beautiful Christmas season!
