Sweet Christmas Traditions

Christmas is a very special time.
It is a time filled with family traditions.
For us, it begins with the Christmas tree
and the decorations
we hang on its delicate branches.

The ornaments on our Christmas tree
are not randomly chosen.
they are remembrances of the places
we've been
throughout the world.
Together as a family.


Some ornaments represent our childhood
and the places we've lived.

While others are cutesy gifts

the children made at school each year~

And some are perfect for tracking our children's growth.

I love to sit and look at the Christmas tree.
And quietly reflect on the places we've been,
and the fun things we've done.
Which has helped to shape

our family into who we are today.

Our Christmas tree
is unique in that way.
It's truly a symbol of the love we share as a family.
Atop our tree hangs a beautiful, red glass heart ornament~
For our family is the heart of our HOME!
And our Christmas tree is a
true representation of that.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
