Deck the Tree

With Ornaments!
For my newbie followers:
One of our Christmas traditions is that each child gets
a new ornament that represents their past year.
Then when they move out, they will have at least 18 ornaments
to decorate their own tree (with a spouse or w/out).

Cooper got the traditional
"Baby's First Christmas" Lenox Ornament
So cute.
(The ornament is too)

Tess - horse
First horse competition
(in the lead-line division)

Dani Rae - piano
Started playing the piano this fall

Elizabeth - piano
Started piano lessons this spring

Weston - soccer player
Played on his first team of soccer

Maggie - soccer player
Also played on a team for the first time

Abbi - cell phone
Got her first phone this year

Hudson - runner and pig
Ran Cross Country for the High School
Raised his first pig

Caleb - runner
Also ran Cross Country
He took 4th overall at State. yay!

Our tree is "decked" out!
And ready for this joyous Christmas season!

Hi there, I too had this tradition and it was wonderful that my girls had so many ornaments when they left home but I also made sure I got a special ornament for hubby and I each year lest we have an empty tree to go with our empty nest. Thanks for sharing.
