A Christmas tradition - Ornaments

I remember our first Christmas together as a married couple.  We were so excited to get our tree up, but realized we had no sentimental ornaments.  We had an ornament dilemma!

Each year on the first day of December, I give each child a wrapped ornament. The ornament is always significant to their accomplishments or stepping stones in the past year. For example, when one of my sons learned how to ride his bike without training wheels, we gave him a bicycle ornament.

I always mark the year on it with the child’s initials. On their wedding day, I plan on giving them all their ornaments in a pretty decorative box.

Stay tuned!  Tomorrow I will be sharing another FUN Christmas tradition!
