For our family, we must have our beautiful Christmas tree, all our yearly ornaments, and some lights.
Each year I make or buy a new ornament for each child and one for my husband and me. We have three tree decorating rules.
- Father, mother, and all four kids must be present.
- Good food!
- The first ornament is gold tinsel that my husband twisted to form "I love you" back when we were dating. This is followed by our first Christmas together ornament—1986. We then add ornaments year-by-year and share a memory from that year. As we get to our children's birth years, they join in. The kids can't wait to be born each year!
