We have a lovely little tradition in our house that marks the start of Christmas for us. Before we even coax the Christmas tree out of hiding we have a visit to our local pottery and make a memory bauble.
This is something i started when little E was just five weeks old to mark his first Christmas and then it evolved into a lovely Christmas memory tree.
Previously I displayed them on a small real tree but I always worried about them getting broken so this year i hunted around for something safer to display them on and came across a jewellery tree that seems to work well. The jewellery tree has twelve prongs so is perfect for my vision of the twelve years of Christmas he he.
This is a really lovely tradition that i truly recommend to anyone with a new born as its a wonderful family tradition and something to cherish and enjoy year after year. Christmas i think is all about children and these will remind you of the lovely small years even when they are all big and grown up. I still have not managed to get round to making a very cute odd sock advent calender i mentioned last year but it a very cute idea that i would recommend.
Its always lovely to hear from you feel free to leave a comment and share your Christmas ideas and traditions.
