Holiday Traditions
What holiday traditions would you have done with your angels? Do you still plan to do them for your rainbows? How do you incorporate your angels into the holidays?

Re: Holiday Traditions
I have (had) a glass angel for each angel baby. But, one of my rainbow babies broke an angel last year. I'm still looking for an angel to replace it. There were six of them. I don't have any traditions for my angel babies, but I love having the ornaments to remember them. I haven't talked to my kids about the others because they're probably too young to understand. They'd likely just get confused, and at the worst, be upset.

We go to cut down a Christmas tree every year at the same farm. It's fun. My husband even proposed to me there. It's really the only tradition we have, other than we just started going to church, and will likely start doing a Christmas eve mass. I'd like to get the kids involved in a holiday charity event, too. We used to do Toys for Tots through the fire department in our old city, but now that we've moved, we'll have to find a new charity. The kids are kind of young now to actually help, anyway. I can't picture them wrapping toys for tots, they'd tear into the toys instead!

Well I have a shelf that I keep things on for my angels. And when we were in Tennessee for our Anniversary DH let me get angel ornaments for them and we had them personalized with their names.

Re: Holiday Traditions
I do nothing :( I've not had the means to in the past. I will buy an ornament for them this year though.

What we would have done is a new ornament every year for the tree. Other than that, nothing specific. And yes, we will do it in the future, I already have Reme's ornament.
