Handmade ornaments

A girlfriend and myself had a great idea of making ornaments every year for our family members. We had a good time doing this but over the years we stopped. I stumbled on a blog of a lady who made family ornaments and i thought, what an awesome tradition of making an ornament every year for each family member with a picture on it. How neat to see how everyone changes over the years and how neat it will be to pass on to my children when they have their own tree someday. So this year a new tradition was started. I have always used the photo frames from michaels to give each set of grandparents a pictured ornament of the kids but this is sooo much nicer! So each side got a gish family ornament. And of course i couldn't do all this work without making one with my dad on it. This was such a hard christmas without him but we got through it. He sure did make us a strong family. FAMILY was everything to him and i am grateful he showed us what that meant!!
