Tis the Season - Challenge Yourself #13

Hi everyone.

I hope you are all enjoying this time of year and are taking a minute for yourself to remember the true meaning of the season.  Sometimes, in the hustle and bustle of it all, we loose sight of the meaning of Christmas.

Challenge YOUrself #13: Traditions
What are some of your traditions for the upcoming holiday season?  Do you have an old tradition that you continued from childhood or did you start your own?  Tell us about it.  
Remember to include YOU in the photo :)

Be sure to check out the site for the new DT members.  They are amazing!

We have a lot of traditions at Christmas time.  The one that really stands out is something I did not have a picture of when I created this layout.  (I do now!)

My husband and I had only been dating a month when our first Christmas rolled around...  what do you get someone when the relationship is so new?  I don't remember what I got him, but he bought be a beautiful crystal dove ornament.  I treasure this gift and it is the FIRST ornament that goes on the tree every year.  We've added to the tradition by getting a "Baby's First Christmas" ornament for each of my boys and these are the 2nd and 3rd ornaments to go on the tree.  After that, it's a free for all...

I didn't scrap that tradition, but what I did scrap is a infamous
photo-in-front-of-the-tree tradition...

Enjoy and thanks for stopping in.
