Kevin and I met in 2008, married in 1010, and moved into our home here at Corner of Main in 2011. We are starting to make a lot of our own traditions for our new family and our new home.
- Last week we cut down our own tree.
I hope we can keep this up every year and make it a new tradition! I would even like to try to plant some trees in our backyard so that we can go cut one of our own down…in…oh…2020 maybe.
- Each year we have exchanged ornaments. Kevin seems to have a theme going on the ones he has given me (no complaints here, who doesn’t love Swarvoski Crystal?)
The photos don’t do these sparkly lovelies justice!
- Another new tradition we are starting is an annual Christmas party in our home. We hosted our first Ugly Christmas Sweater party this past weekend actually! Our friends and family had a great time finding something ugly to wear….
(Do you see the gray paint? L. O. V. E. it)
Those hats actually moved and played music!
Kevin’s sister was the winner (below in the red with the runners up)…
She made her sweater quite ugly with a stocking on the front and a wreath on the back! Here was her prize (along with a Starbucks gift card):
It’s the (very) rare (I only made 2, one for the winner and one for us)…
2011 Corner of Main Ugly Sweater Ornament! I am not sure if I can top this next year!
