First Snow & Ornament Boxes

This morning we woke up to the first snow of the season that has amounted to anything. It snowed off and on all weekend but didn't stick. I took this picture through the foggy door. That's why it's a little blurry, but this was the very first time Hemi has seen snow. She loves it, but she doesn't love the cold, so she doesn't stay out long.

Now, I think these ornament boxes turned out just darling. You can purchase the template over at PTI. It's called For Keep{sake}. You don't have to use it just for ornaments, but it is tradition at my house to buy the boys each a new orament each year. That way, when they are grown and gone they will have a collection of ornaments for their own tree. Dustin's mom did that for him and still does, so we get lots of new ornaments each year. I love that tradition! Do you have any family holiday traditions?

Those ornament boxes are awesome! I want to make some! Also, I am sooooo jealous of the snow, and also of the gorgeous view out your back door!

I think I'm going to start of a tradition of getting Jackson an ornament every year, that seems like a great idea!
