Christmas Traditions

"Family traditions are created with love and are wrapped ever so warmly within ones's heart until it is time to unwrap this beautiful present again." ~Mama Hen
Since I was young and on my own I started the tradition that every ornament on my Christmas tree would be handmade by me or family. This tradition has become so much more special since I became a mommy. I love making ornaments with my daughter. We already started making some and had so much fun putting them on the tree. While opening the boxes with the past Christmas ornaments my heart melted when remembering Little Chick's tiny hands creating each and every one. We had a wonderful time playing Christmas music and decorating our beautiful tree. It is such a magical time of year.

Yippeeeee!
