Tree Trimming Tradition

Tree in Town Square," December 4, 1948

Tonight's the night.
We're going to decorate the Christmas tree.
I give the children an ornament each year.
We put the ornaments on the tree chronologically beginning with the wired gold tinsel "I love you" that my husband made for me while we were dating.  I tell the story of our life as we go, something from each year. My husband usually hangs our couple ornaments.  The children begin adding their ornaments when we get to their birth year.  If they complain, I just tell them they're not born yet!

Tradition!

  2. Hello,

    I found your blog on Raising Homemakers; I posted a link, too.

    What fun! Isn’t creating your own family traditions such a delight?

Hello! I love it when y'all talk back!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I'm dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy. Please understand if I don't answer. This is all new to me.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PRAYING FOR ME!!!
I treasure your prayers and your comments.

Be blessed!
