Mama Cowgirl blogged about her Christmas Traditions, which got me thinking. I've been seeing lots of Pinterest pins on fun (new to us) traditions from Elf on the Shelf to decorating the kids doors with streamers. With H being so little, it is sort of a bonus year - we can try things out and see what we want to keep. We are headed out of town for the actual Christmas Day, so Sunday we will be having a "Peach Family Christmas."
Here is a look at a few things we tried this year as a family of three.
Cutting down our own tree in Pike National Forest. (Information on Permits and can be found on the US Forest Service Webpage.)
(Easiest craft ever - mostly because Daddy Peach did all the work. Directions can be found here.)
Our Travel Ornament Collection. As I posed on Mama Cowgirls post, it is so fun to decorate the tree and remember all the fun trips we have taken over the years. Here are just a few of our favorite ornaments.

One of my favorite things about Christmas is going to peoples homes and seeing all the ornaments on peoples trees. A few of you commented that you also have ornament collections. I would love to see pictures!
