the first i'll be sharing is on ornaments. as children, my husband and his siblings each picked out an ornament for their christmas tree. colby and i decided to continue this in our family once we were married. we each picked out an ornament for our tree, then also got a family ornament.
unfortunately a few unnoticed ornaments from years past have fallen victim to tree heaven when we have taken our trees to be recycled after christmas. we decided to adjust this tradition a bit this christmas, now having two children - each of the boys will get an ornament, then we'll have one family ornament - usually a photo ornament from our family christmas card.
below are this year's choices - a good representation of each of our boys this year.
one of my favorite ornaments to date is our first "family" ornament from colby and i's first christmas together. bowling shoes - which represent the way we met - at IU's campus bowling alley my freshman year in college. <3 comment-3--="" nbsp="">3>
looking forward to continuing traditions, adapting traditions, and beginning new ones with my sweet little family over the years. merry december to you!
