An Ornament Tradition

A few years ago we started a sweet tradition of choosing a new ornament for our Christmas tree each year.  Each year, we try to choose an ornament that represents something from that year.  Here is our little family tradition...

Our first ornament just had to be an OSU football.  Are you surprised?

Year two was our "we moved to the south" beach flamingo.

Our third ornament was this framed photo of our sweet boy Jake that we adopted.

Our fourth ornament is this sand dollar.  It represents our move closer to the coast.

Year five saw Brad in grad school at ECU.  (Shout out to next week's graduate, by the way!)

This year, we added a special little girl to our family.  This ornament is perfect for her.  From the bow to the hot mess of being wrapped up in the ribbon.  Miss Maggie to a T!


  1. That's a lovely tradition and must bring back lots of great memories!
