25 days of christmas: day 14


for today's advent activity
we took the girls to the store to choose 
their very own christmas ornament for our christmas tree


there were lots to choose from
and we took an embarrassingly long time to choose



 in the end i chose this gingham reindeer



pia chose a large-and-in-charge blue sparkly candy cane


and zoe chose this pretty pink lollipop


we have been doing this little tradition for a few years now
so we have slowly built up a small ornament collection

do you buy your ornaments in bulk or one at a time?

This is a great idea. I think starting next year this is something I'll start doing with my son. I think he's still too young to understand the idea of picking out an ornament for Christmas.

I buy thrift , since we are not real Christian we just do a holiday tree and such for fun so I limit the spending :) I am looking forward to showing you guys the Muslim Eid this year . We wear new clothes , make loads of goodies and make it a real special day for all :) Happy Christmas to your beauties :)
