Holiday Tree-dition 2012: My Favorite Holiday Tradition!

Here in the Peas and Crayons household [or is it Peas and Crazy? I can’t tell at this point!] we have a little Christmas tradition.  Each year we buy two new ornaments for the tree.  In light of our nicknames for each other [P calls me Bird and I call him Bear] Paul buys me a bird ornament while I try to hunt down the least creepy bear I can find.  That bear dressed as jolly St. Nick?  Freaks me out.  It reminds me of the transgender wolf in Little Red Riding Hood.  I can practically hear him growling “…the better to eat you with my dear!”  Pass.

So without further adieu, here is our shrubbery of animals:

bear christmas ornament

His feet move.  It’s a bit ridiculous how much I love that.

All that’s left is to name the little creeper.  Any suggestions?

What’s your favorite holiday tradition?

    Soooooooooo cute!!!! I’m obsessed with the owl and the bear from 2010! The tradition in my family growing up consisted of getting a new Christmas ornament every year and my parent’s gave us the entire box of them when we got married. I actually tried to talk to my hubs about starting a tradition like this (but not using our nicknames b/c he calls me Boo Boo and I call him Papa Pootie Bear) but something else like it. I love the whole idea!

    What a sweet holiday tradition! 😀 I’m thinking the owl should be named Who-liday. Owls “who” right? (I crack myself up.) The hubs and I have moved around a lot over the past several years so we haven’t quite settled down enough to create any long-lasting holiday traditions yet. I guess right now our holiday tradition is being non-traditional. 😉

    I can’t handle the cuteness from the ornaments, and from you and P. Too much to take right now. And thanks for listening to me vent today chica 😉
