It’s that time of the year again! Time to decorate the Christmas tree.
A new tree is something that’s been on my list for a year or two now, and will probably stay on that list for another year or so. Eventually, I’d like a taller tree as the one we have now is pretty short. We have it up on a crate for some height.
What I do love about our tree is the decorations.
It’s something that I borrowed from my mother when The Fellow and I got together – getting ornaments as souvenirs when we travel. Her tree is huge, and now it’s becoming hard to squeeze in any more ornaments!
They’re the perfect way to bring back memories from vacations and not clutter the house.
They’re small, and you can find some really neat ones. Then, once a year, you have this wonderful road map of your lives together.
We have a Canadian flag ornament from when we got engaged, a Guinness cup from our honeymoon, and this year we are also adding a few different ornaments for Little Bit’s first Christmas.
One of my favorite things to do is to get a clear ornament from the Dollar Tree and fill it myself. That way you can make your own keepsakes. For example, one of Little Bit’s ornaments has one of her newborn hats and a hospital band.
I love seeing how far we’ve come, and eventually it will be as full as my parents!
What are your favorite ornaments and the stories that go with them? I’d love to hear about them!
