I am all about tradition. I like setting up little rituals that we can continue throughout our “existence.” It’s fun and it makes me happy.
One tradition that we do (among many) has to do with Christmas ornaments.
Every year since Hayden was born, we have taken a picture of him wearing his Christmas pajamas and placed the picture in a picture frame ornament (and hung it on the tree).
I purchased some picture frame ornaments from Target over the past two years that have enabled me to bring consistency to this tradition. Unfortunately these ornaments will only get me through to when Hayden is about 13 and they don’t have them anymore which I am quite upset about, but I’m coping - or at least I'm trying to (I had wanted to continue the picture frame tradition until he was 18 and had moved out of the house).
Anywho, back to the topic at hand: the ornaments.
Looking at the ornaments you should notice the “theme” - Pretty cute stuff (well at least I think so).
Aren't traditions fun?!?
Oh, and here are the original pictures.
Note: All pictures were taken in December... the first was 12.07, then 12.08, and lastly 12.09 so he was approximately 11-months-old, 23-months-old, and 35-months-old in each picture, respectively.
