Every year for Christmas we do two things, the kids help pick out a new ornanment for Rebecca and we pick a name off the angel tree for a little girl that would be Rebecca's age and buy them a gift.


Do you have any traditions?

This is our first Christmas. I've ordered an ornament for him, and I'm trying to find a special stocking. I love you idea with the angel tree, I think I may have to steal that.

I have a stocking for her. I write her a letter and put it in there and then Santa brings a gift for the family for her stocking.

I am making a stocking for Lucy and Isaiah with their names embroidered on it to match the rest of the family. I also plan to find a special ornament for them.

Where is their an angel tree or where do you donate your gift to?

I have made a stocking for Sara and have made a blanket and hat that will go in it on Christmas morning. Then I will donate them to the hospital on her birthday since it's so close to Christmas.

We put together a box for Operation Christmas Child. I don't know if we'll get an ornament for her or not.

This will be our first Christmas since losing the baby. I haven't really figured out what I want to do, and it makes it hard that we never knew the sex of the baby. This thread is helpful, though. I really like the angel tree idea.

We haven't really done anything, we got an ornament for his first Christmas. I would like to get another one this year and was thinking of having hte kids pick an angel tree child anyway, so maybe we will do it for a baby that would be his age.
