If you've been around lately, you know that I did put ornaments on my entire tree, it's just that my boys had a different creative vision for the bottom half. Nonetheless, our tree is my very favorite tradition this time of year.
Actually, we've made our tree a year-round tradition in our home. The memories we hope to savor - things like trips, baby milestones & family memories - are collected tangibly throughout the year in the form of a Christmas ornament. When we go to pull out our tree at the holidays, the ornaments serve as a reminder of all the fun we've shared.
- We remember trips to India and Amelia Island and lots of places in between.
- We remember a small piece of the nurseries where we rocked our boys when they were babies.
- We remember my late Grandmother who handmade some of my favorite ornaments that have since been passed down over the years.
- We remember holiday trips to the German Christmas market in Denver, and hope for a return to our other favorite tradition in 2021.
And yes, I, a 30-something, am on TikTok and attempted a video at turning mobiles into ornaments. Enjoy;)
Tell me - what's you favorite holiday tradition?
