My mom started a Christmas tradition with my sister and I. Every year she would give us each an ornament. Her hopes were that one day when we had are own families, our tree would not be a blank slate but one that is already filled with memories of Christmases past..and a family who has and always will love us.
This year I opted to add a splash of red to the canvas.
What always amazes me though, is how my treasured ornaments add the extra special touch that no sparkle or flashy color can EVER replace.
My own baby ornament
I loved unicorns as a little kid. Funny thing is..this one is my sister's. I had the unicorn with the pink sequin. I laugh though b/c I bring that up every year to my mom.
My favorite 3rd grade teacher helped me make this one.
My mom continues the Christmas ornament tradition with my son.
Mr. B and I gave these ornaments as our wedding favors with a little note that said: "tis the season to be marry." Of course we kept 1...or maybe 4.
