It’s a tradition in our home that each child hangs their own special ornaments. The older you get, the more ornaments you have made and collected over the years. So it is very important to our younger children that they have their own to hang too.
Samuel is our youngest so when it came time to hand him one of his special ornaments he savored the moment. Turning it over in his hand he read it out loud, “Baby’s 1st Christmas” He softly said, then immediately blurted out, “Hey Mom, this isn’t me!?”
He was right, and for seven years mommy has yet to find or even print a teeny tiny picture to put in Samuel’s ornament. When I tried to convince him, “Oh, honey…are you sure that isn’t you? It sure does look like you.” (It looks nothing like him) The kids busted up laughing, including Samuel.
Am I the only one who has pictures of complete strangers adorned in ornaments on her Christmas tree?
In case you happen to know who this darling little boy is in the picture ornament above, please let his family know that he will be spending his seventh Christmas at our house.
