Do you buy a family ornament?

We buy one every year. The kids really enjoy looking at them. I got ours today for this year. We get one from the place in the mall...they have gone up too...almost $20, but....worth it to me :)Do you buy one for your family tree?

  • we buy some type of ornament every year.. i either let them each pick one out, or we make them, or we get a cute family one.. but not always a family one! I love every Christmas when you get that certain ornament out it just brings you back to the memories a year ago, its like they all have their own story.. how cheesy.. but its so true!!

  • My children have each gotten an ornament every year since they were born. I try to choose something that is meaningful to what they did or an interest they have had that year.
    My mother did the same for us and I have ornaments for my tree when I moved out. It make decorating the tree special as I loving place the meaningful ornaments on my tree every year. I tell my kids and my husband the story behind each ornament. Hubby is sick of hearing the stories, but the kids aren't.
