Christmas Ornament Tradition

Every year I try to buy or make my children a Christmas tree ornament. I have missed a few years here and there, but my children each have acquired a nice set of ornaments over the years, which continues to grow as I add to it. Three of my grown children have now taken their box of ornaments to their own homes to decorate their own trees.

The ornaments usually have a theme each year - snowmen, Santas, nativity, Scrabble, sports, travel, sports, music, songbirds, hobbies, school, etc. Last year I made embroidered felt songbirds. This year, I wrote words of faith with red Sharpie pens on slices of wood, and then finished them with a coat of glitter Mod Podge and a red ribbon hanger.
