Growing up in my parents house as a child around the holidays was amazing.
My mom has a love for all things Christmas.
Every year the day after thanksgiving we'd rock out to Christmas music & start setting up the house to bring in the Christmas Cheer.
My mom had everything!
She has 20 bows to hang on the stair case, she has a beautiful wreath hanger, and she even has a dancing Santa that sings "Rocking around the Christmas Tree" but most of all she has the BEST ornaments for the tree!
This made decorating the tree the most fun!
Every year my mom picked out ornaments for my sister and I.
They were always very similar but often times very different reflecting our personalities.
Every year my sister and I were allowed to open one gift on Christmas eve...
Every year we begged our mom to give us our ornaments so we could hang them.
Her goal was for the two of us to have enough ornaments when we moved out to fill our tree and have it look different.
I don't think she owns a single bulb ornament for her tree.
My mom has passed this tradition along and is now doing the same for my niece and nephew.
This is a tradition that I will carry on when Mr. and I have children. The ornaments were and still are so special to me and my sister. I can't imagine my children not having that same experience.
What are traditions you will carry on? What traditions have you created?
