Each year, the kids get to choose an ornament to add to the Christmas tree. You'd think of doing this for over a decade that our tree would be heavy laden with ornaments but it's not. Funny how that works.
Even my mom does it. I don't recall us shopping for ornaments much as a kid in the manner my kids and I do but my mom always had some special ornaments she put on the tree each year.
When it comes to letting the kids choose their ornaments, I don't really place any restrictions on their ornament choice. I pretty much allow them to choose the ornament of their liking, 'cept for that one time when one of the kids wanted this ornament that was like $50. Hey, I've got limits. Anyhoo, for the most part they get to choose what they like and each year as we trim the tree we reflect on each of the ornaments. "Mommy, remember this one?" "Wow, I can't believe we still have this one." It's our little tradition and I hope it's one the kids will carry on.
