It’s December!!

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

I love Christmas and am so happy that we can officially start celebrating.  Ok, I started a little early, we decorated the tree on the weekend, we went with a aqua, pink and purple theme. 

I have been reading the many comments left on the Challenge:  What is your family Christmas tradition post and facebook and am finding great inspiration from all your traditions. One that really stood out to me was buying an ornament each year for each child and when they move out of home (as sad as that day will be) I have a collection for each of them.  I fell in love with this tradition and happy that without knowing it I started last year.  I brought each of our kids a gorgeous heart ornament (below).  So today they get to open the first day on the advent calendar, I have a note inside directing them to a hiding spot (as the gift didn’t fit in the little box, a treasure hunt is so much fun) and I brought them each a silver star to add to their new collection.  I am going to buy a silver ornament each year.

Thankyou all for sharing your traditions.  Don’t forget to enter by noon QLD time Challenge:  What is your family Christmas tradition comment on the post for your chance to win some handy pantry labels from Bright Star Kids Agent Elisha Squire
