Christmas Memories #5: Decorating

There we those certain this I just adored every Christmas.  My mom made these fabric candy canes that I thought were just amazing.  We also had these angels that would spin around and ding on these chimes when you lit the candles (which, we never did... but just the thought of it was pretty exciting).

We had yearly ornaments on our tree and we had an elf that would come and watch us each year.

I've carried on a lot of these traditions.  I've made us all stockings, which is a fun thing.  I adore all of our little kid manger scenes that they can play with and love (and I just pray all the pieces find their way home).  Our tree is also made of yearly ornaments.  We are hardly having to use other ornments between what the kids bring home (which tend to decorate the "back side" of our tree) and our yearlys.  Drew usually gets some from students.  It's ecclectic but it's all our family.

So, what about you, do you have special decorating items?  Do you revel in bringing them out each year?

  1. Each of our kids gets a new ornament each year -- so they will have a set to start their own trees with.

    And we pick up an ornament whenever we travel anywhere. It's a blast to remember all the places we went as a familiy.
