{ holiday traditions }

{ building snowmen }

{ putting out favorite decorations }

{ mixing handmade and bought treasures }

{ wreath, birds and jingle bells }

{ the best tradition of all, decorating the Christmas tree }
There's nothing like the tradition of decorating the house and tree in preparation for the holiday, especially with small children, their joy and delight is a pleasure to watch. We got our tree yesterday, and tonight we will be getting out all the familiar ornaments from years past to trim it with. Another tradition is receiving a new ornament each on Christmas morning that can then be added to the tree, fun indeed to see what Santa brings.
Here's to the Holidays, whichever one you celebrate, it certainly is a magical time of year! ♥

I like the idea of getting a new ornament every year. I used to that and maybe we start that up again now that the kids are old enough to remember things about Christmas.

We do new ornaments every year too. It was tough to decide what left with us when we grew up & moved out...but what was left at mom & dad's is always fun to search the tree for each year :)

Have fun decorating!
