When I was five, my mom started the tradition of giving us a new ornament every year. Sometimes they were to commemorate something that had happened during the year – like when I got my first toe shoes – and other times they were simply pretty or unique ornaments. We’ve all continued the tradition with our own families and here are the ornaments I gave my four children this year …
Layla – she loves Avatar and specifically the water symbol:
Syd – she loves music. (This is a piece of sea glass with a silver note charm):
Aiden – this is the year he developed an obsession with sharks:
Evan – first year playing Lacrosse:
When we take the tree down, I’ll get out the ornaments I received as a child and take some pictures for you. Right now they’re all packed away safely out of the dog’s reach.
