Decorating the tree is a special time for my family, as we get out all the past ornaments (and there are TONS of them), and reminisce about the years past.
Growing up, each year my mom would give me and my siblings an personalized ornament depicting something that was special to us over that past year. About 10 years ago when I got married, she gave me all my ornaments as a gift so I would have a good start to decorating my own tree.
Loving this tradition, I now buy each member of my family a new ornament.
This year, I’ll be picking out a maternity inspired ornament for myself, as our newest member of the family is due right after the holiday.
