A Christmas Tradition


This past weekend we finally put up our Christmas Tree and I think Will hung just as many ornaments as I did, it is nice to have a little helper. Every year I especially enjoy hanging the ornaments since they carry such memories, many date back to when my husband and I were children to the new ornaments that we have added since we became a family. Some of our ornaments are over 30 years old, amazing that they have survived all these years. I especially loved that this year Will hung his special ornaments on the tree all by himself. Will has his own box and every year we add to his collection. I hope that one day Will also enjoys hanging his childhood ornaments and will carry on the tradition with his family. (btw Will has a thing for footie pj's right now and would like me to get a pair in my size, I told him they aren't available but he thinks Target has some)

Do you have a Holiday tradition that has been carried through the generations?

I understand his love for footy pajamas. I love them too! I would happily wear a pair myself!

He looks so happy to be helping out. What a cutie!

great pictures. i like how you faded out the green in each picture. that is what you did, right? maybe i need glasses. my son also helps decorate the tree and puts the star on top. last year we had some ornament casualties, so he can only handle the non-breakables. happy WW and take care.
