Ornament Traditions

I love Christmas ornaments. I love the memories behind them. We have a wonderful tradition where we give each of the kids an ornament each year that reflects something they are "into" that year.

This year, Chloe got a girlie monkey ornament:

Spencer got a frog:

Tyler got a brightly-colored, funky snowman:

My mom/Nana gets the kids each an ornament each year, too - the girls get angels:

Spencer gets a snowman:

I have ornaments from each year of my child-hood as well and I love seeing them each year. My first one:

And my second:

I have plate of antique ornaments from my grandparents' tree that I cherish as well!

And this year, I got to decorate a shelf my grandpa had made for my grandmother and I now get to enjoy in my living room and then I get to top it with elves we had in our home when I was growing up - sweet memories!
