this little tradition started just before our firstborns first christmas.

we went to our local department store who were offering to write on your baubles for a small fee.

its started as a once off, getting a bauble and having them write Holli’s 1st Christmas with the year on the back.

and it dawned on me one day that if i got one per child every year, by the time they are 18, 20 & 21 our tree should be decked out with 59 christmas baubles to commemorate all of their christmas’ since they were born. WOW!

and when they leave the nest they can take their baubles and we can start again for our grandbabies,

so it’s just a simple tradition that costs about $10 a year.

and we love it!
