I have a tradition in my family when it comes to Christmas ornaments. Every year since my husband and I got engaged, we've bought an ornament that commemorates something big that's happened that year.

We have ones that celebrate our engagement, the year we moved in together, our marriage and each of our children. It's fun to choose a new one each year and one of those traditions that I am hoping we can keep going (we've been successful in doing so for over 12 years). I love that we can look back through the years and revisit those fun memories.
