I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas day. We sure did at our home. Before we move into the new year, I would like to share one other Christmas tradition my family has that I absolutely love. Every year, our family buys or makes a new ornament to add to our tree. It’s no wonder our tree has any room left on it. This is our ornament for this year, it adds the bling I love and shows where our strength comes from.
I can remember this tradition stemming from when I was a little girl like it was yesterday. During that time, we use to make most of our special ornaments. My mom is very creative and crafty. I remember her setting a table next to the fireplace in our basement. She would lay out paint, supplies, and the ceramic ornaments that were made for us. My sister and I would paint our hearts away while she went and got the cookies and milk ready for Santa. And of course, we had Christmas music playing in the background. “Have yourself a merry little Christmas” rings in my ear. I’m getting chills just thinking about it. I am so excited to share with you those ornaments which my mother STILL has. Now don’t judge our painting skills, remember my sister and I were kids at the time (smile). Can you tell which one’s my mother helped us with?
So of course I carried the tradition on with my husband. It’s funny, I quizzed my husband on what ornaments we added each year, and low and behold he got them right. We were married August 2008 and spent immediately started our collection. Take a look…
I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I did creating it. Do you have any favorite ornaments you love? Please share with me I am so in love with ornaments and would enjoy seeing your collection.
