Every year we take the kids to pick out ornaments. They each get to pick out one to add to the tree. Also they usually make one at daycare/school to add to the collection too. This is one of my favorite traditions that my mom did for us growing up. Each ornament on her tree has a story behind it. My siblings loved decorating the tree every year and remembering the stories behind each ornament.
We get a family ornament every year.
We add some years, not others. We have various collections and those get added to each year.
Yes my kids aways have one they bring home from school with there picture on it. I love that and looking back at them when we take it all out to put on the tree. :)
Quoting lillucky8:I recently had to switch out many of my glass ornaments for plastic so my mini mes didnt break them. I think we are going to start a tradition that we let them choose a new ornaments each year and when they move out they get to take them :)
Dd gets a new ornament every year and once she hit 1st grade ilet her pick her ornament. When she settles down in the far future I will give them to her.
