Christmas time is special for so many different reasons. I enjoy gathering my Christmas decorations and having my children help me decorate the tree. I have some very special ornaments that have been given to me over the years from grandparents. These ornaments are very special to me and I will treasure them forever. I have also made this a tradition with my children over the last few years. I like to go downtown in Ottawa to the local stores to find that very special ornament for each of my three children. I purchase ornaments each year and have my children open them on Christmas day. That way, next year they will be able to place it on the tree .I like to personalize the ornaments to my children's interests and personalities. I have my oldest who is into gaming, my middle child is into sports and my youngest is into the outdoors.
My hope for the future is that my children will take these ornaments with them when they decide to leave our home and create new memories with their families.
