Mom Blogs @ Mom Dot : Party Day 2

Jingle Bells Pictures, Images and PhotosRemember the part is ongoing over at Mom Dot, today's question is:

Traditions, what are some of your favorite family traditions? What are some that you want to begin?

We'll I've started the tradition of buying a photo ornament, started last year with Gabriel's first set of "Its a Boy" ornaments we picked up from Target. All the ornaments were blue and there was a whole tub of them which included some photo frame ornaments as well!

This year we have Helana... Her first Christmas! I'm thinking changing up the Christmas ornaments to where we will use "purple" as our main color of ornaments along with Gabriel's photo ornament and a new one for Helana!

We have soo far spent every Christmas together, The Clos', which include myself, my hubby Phillip, Gabriel, and now our newest addition Helana and I hope we get to spend every Christmas together!

But we do our Christmas a lil' different, we actually celebrate with the whole "gift" giving after Christmas. Due to the fact of my hubby was either training (US NAVY) or for example this year my son Gabriel will be spending Christmas break holiday with his Father. So we have an after-Christmas celebration and stuff is always ALOT cheaper after the holiday, am I right?

That is nice- I love taking advantage of after holiday sales but I usually have to store them for the next year :-)

I love photo ornaments, we get a new one each year.

Things are definitely cheaper after the holiday. I need to take advantage and stock up on things this year.

Hmm, giving the gifts after Christmas sounds like a fun idea. And you're right, it would be much cheaper!

I've always wanted to do photo ornaments.

Tracye said...

We do the photo ornaments each year, too!

I was just thinking today that our tree will soon be nothing but photo ornaments!

We have ten now, and will be adding three each year from next year on!

Hrm...I should give the photo ornament a try. It'd be nice to have a picture to go with it instead of just "baby's first christmas"
