My favorite ornaments are the photo ornaments of the grand kids. We have one ornament for each child from their first Christmas until they reach the age of 18. Each year we add a photo ornament of each grandchild until they graduate high school. As noted on Monday the oldest grand daughter is now 21 and engaged to be married. The second grand daughter is 17, so next year will be her last ornament. The youngest grand daughter is 16 and the grandson is 14, so we are nearing the end of our ornament journey. I would suggest this Christmas tradition for any family. We have a small tree in the den to display these ornaments. There are now far more ornaments than space on the tree, so we trade different ones out each year. Christmas is about a Savior. But Christmas is also about family and sharing our lives together and making memories. The photo ornaments are a way of preserving those memories. Have a blessed day.
I love the idea of a photo ornament tree. We have a few ornaments like that on our tree. Making memories.ReplyDelete
