It’s one of my very favorites! This year, Big Brother noticed it and said, “look, it’s Mommy & Daddy”.
The first Christmas we were married, my parents gave me all my ornaments (and we received my husband’s ornaments as his grandma started the same tradition in their family when my husband was about 10 or so). We continued the tradition and each year (even before kids) we got an ornament for us. Now, we’ve started our little guys’ ornament collections as well.
It’s such a simple tradition to carry out and one that is so sentimental. Each year, I love getting out all these special ornaments–bringing back so many wonderful memories of years past.
Do you have any ornament traditions or ones with extra special meaning?
