Christmas Memories…Old and New

When our children were small, we lived in Montana and I was active in a Mothers of Twins group. Every December, we’d get together for a cookie exchange and to make ornaments for our trees. Some of us were crafty; some of us weren’t. So the group made a habit of finding easy-to-make ornaments. After all, we wanted everyone to have fun… and to create memories we’d cherish through the years. Because they were easy, I always made several… and as our kids established their own households, many of those ornaments went along with them.

This year as I was helping (watching?) my youngest daughter decorate her home for Christmas, I saw quite a few of those ornaments added to her tree. As she pulled them out of boxes, we talked about how and when they were made. Childhood memories for her; memories of camaraderie for me.

And then she took it a step further and chose one pattern to make with her own kidlets. Old memories made new!

Isn’t it amazing what you can create with a toilet paper tube and some colorful yarn?
