Unfortunately they aren't as close to my home as I want them to be... but couldn't get any closer to my heart!
Since Jacob was born I started a tradition of buying each of my kids one Christmas ornament a year to put on our family tree. Every year they get to pick out one that is special to them. I added a few special ornaments to my family tree this year for the Lakhoua family! So every year I will remember this special family! (Not that I need an ornament to remember them) but it just is so special to me and since they are a part of my family now... they get to be a part of my family tree!!
What is your family Christmas tradition?
