Christmas Keepsakes

December 12, 2016

Christmas is almost here! And I’m already thinking about when it’s gone! :( I love having a special keepsake that I can take out year after year at Christmas time and think about the years I’ve used it. Especially my stocking! I still have and use my stocking from when I was a little kid! So does John! We argue each year about whose is better, it always makes me laugh, because your stocking is so special in it’s very own way. It holds so many memories, and nobodies can be better than yours :) I hope that Ivy and Leo feel an attachment to their stocking as they grow up!

But a stocking isn’t the only way to remember each Christmas and relive the memories. I LOVE a personalized ornament! I put our Christmas card photo on ours so that we have a good memory from each of our Christmases year after year. They’re so fun to look back on! While John and I only have had four Christmases married to each other, I can’t wait to see them when we have 20! Or 50! Plus, fun to see the kids grow up year after year in our family photo. Leo and Ivy’s Baby’s First Christmas ornaments are such a joy to see each Christmas season. And always make sure to remember to put the year on it!

And this year, I’m really loving all of the beautiful wrapping papers out there! Now, there are personalized wrapping papers! You can even put pictures on them! How fun to have wrapping paper with your child’s photo on it! I think Ivy would about die seeing herself under the tree! :) Plus, fun to have spare paper leftover for next year to see how they’ve changed. This idea seems so neat!

 Whichever way you go, I really enjoy a keepsake from each year to think back on the year and how much has changed. Just a fun way to remember all the memories we’ve shared over the years.
