Christmas Traditions, Part 1
Since our marriage, and especially since we had children, Jeff and I have established several traditions for Christmas in our family. One of those is buying the kids an ornament for the tree each year. I love the idea that when they move out of the house to a home of their own, they'll have plenty of childhood Christmas memories to take with them. The first ornament is always one of their first shoes ...
And after that, I try to get them something that coordinates with something that happened that year. Some of Kaity's ornaments are a ballerina, a pink glittery ball, an artist's pallet, her initial, and an angel named Grace. Some of Joe's are a dump truck, his initial, a train, a ball with his handprint, and a nutcracker. This year, they chose their own ornaments, a first! Selah's was her shoe, of course, but Kaity and Joe were shopping with me when they found the perfect ones for this year.
