Every year the Christmas decorations come out and I feel like I get to take a little stroll down memory lane! Many of the decorations in our house have been passed down from either my mom or my mother in law. I love this because each year I get to remember the memories associated with those decorations or hear memories from my husbands childhood.
For some reason or another I have grown to love ornaments. We have so many variations of ornaments on our tree but each year when we get them out I get to remember all the special people who gave them to us or where they came from. I am going to share with you some of my favorites but to help you start a SIMPLE ornament tradition here are a few ideas:
Buy an ornament each time you go on vacation
Have your children make an ornament each year
Start an ornament exchange and keep the ornaments you receive from each year
Ask your parents or in-laws if they have any memorable ornaments from yours or your husbands childhood.
