Christmas traditions

One of the things that Dave and I love to do every year at Christmas is to buy an ornament that represented something from the past year. When we first got married we didn’t have many ornaments for our tree and we thought this would be a fun and meaningful way to fill our tree in the coming years!

So I thought it would be fun to look back on the past six Christmases we have spent together and do a little review of our ornaments and memories.


2007 - The year we got married and celebrated our first Christmas together
2008 - The year we celebrated our 1st anniversary and went white water rafting for the first time
2009 - The year we went camping every weekend that we could
2010 - The year I had the crazy idea to raise money (for work) by organizing a flamingo flocking fundraiser and we spent every night for a month picking up and dropping off plastic flamingos
2011 - The year we moved to California wine country
2012 - The year we finally found our church home and really felt a part of a community

It’s so fun to look back over the past years and remember many of the fun times we’ve shared since becoming a family. I am so looking forward to adding to our ornament collection in the years to come as our family grows and we make more memories together!

What are some of your favorite holiday traditions?
