Happiness Project: Week 10

Trimming the tree with family is something I look forward to each year. I love unveiling each ornament and finding a special place for it on the tree. Whether is it an ornament I made myself in preschool out of dough or  it is a handmade wooden ornament I got at the Christmas market in Germany, each ornament has a memory from my past attached to it and a story to go along with it that is shared again each year. As each year passes we make or get new ornaments and create new memories that I know will be added to the rest and retold year after year.

My little drummer boy (Pilot found a tin in one of the boxes and created a little drum)

I just love this time of year.

What wonderful family photos!

I love the stories attached to various ornaments too, and the memories that go with them.

I also love the photo of your little drummer boy!
