"Hanging in there"

Things are looking Christmas-y around here.
Part of that is putting up the tree and "hanging" ornaments.
If you have been following our blog for over a year now than you know
our ornament tradition.
For those of you who are new to our blog....
Each person gets an ornament that represents the year.
Then when they move out, they will have at least 18 ornaments to hang on their own tree with lots of memories.

So, here are this years ornaments:

Brian -  a barn
Finished our barn this year that we LOVE!

Caleb - a football
played on the HS football team

Hudson - a football
Played on the freshman football team

Abbi - violin and "Braces On"

Maggie - violin and cross
The cross for being baptized!

Elizabeth - a cross
She was baptized!

Weston - a cross
He was baptized!

Dani Rae - a school girl
Learned to read this year

Tessa - swimmer
Took (and LOVED) her first swim lessons

Love this! I think this is a great tradition :) We don't have any traditions like these but I know this will be something very special that they will cherish.

I love your tree it's beautiful! We do the same thing with ornaments, now 10 children and 18 years later our tree is really full...and I love it! My mom also gives them and ornament as well, so we had to do just a kids tree to hold them all. Your choice of ornaments this year was so sweet, I loved the crosses best!

Love the tradition of the ornaments! We have a similar one here too. My kids look forward to getting their new ornament each year. :) Your tree looks beautiful! We are hoping to get ours decorated this evening. :)

Merry Christmas!!
