My favorite memory of Christmas was when I was young my mom and I would go and pick out our Christmas tree. We always got a real tree. I loved pulling out all the decorations with her and all the memories that would come with it.  I am try to pass on those same traditions with my children. We still go out and pick out a real tree every year.  The smell of that freshly cute tree always reminds me of being a child.  Each of my children have their own trees in their room and they get to put on their tree all the ornaments that they make each year.  They help me put it up and take it down each year.  That way they can keep track of all their special ornaments. I love being able to create new memories with my family and remember the old memories during this wonderful time of year.
