New Traditions

Now that our family is complete, I've been thinking a lot about traditions for Christmas. This year we welcomed the "Elf on the shelf" and Zig (the elf) has become a part of our every day lives. :)

I've been thinking about starting another tradition that is very close to my heart. I grew up spending a lot of time with my Grandma (mom's mom) and every Christmas she would buy me a new Hallmark ornament, so every year I looked forward to seeing what she got for me. My mom or I have been trying to get ornaments for Brynn and now McKenzie every year. This year as I was shopping for their ornaments, I tried to find just the right ones that would reflect this past year for them. When I got home to wrap them up and label them, I was thinking that maybe I should put "from:" from someone else other than me. I decided that I would make the ornaments from Great-Grandma. Even though Brynn only got to see her when she was just a baby and Grandma H. never got to meet McKenzie, I know that she watches over my girls daily. So Brynn may not understand it now, but I will try and explain to her and each year, the girls ornaments will be from Great-Grandma. :)
