More Christmas Memories The Christmas Pickle

 This year we started a new tradition that we just learned about.  "The Christmas Pickle" 

The Christmas pickle is a Christmas tradition in the United States. A decoration in the shape of a pickle is hidden on a Christmas tree, with the finder receiving either a reward or good fortune for the following year. There are a number of different origin stories attributed to the tradition, but it was primarily thought to have originated in Germany.

So we found a plastic pickle ornament from the dollar store and hid it on the tree. 
First we let Morgan and Kayla search for it
 
 
The girls were looking everywhere and the big tree was shaking
 
Finally Uncle Ricky and Daddy Jeremy stepped into to help

and Morgan found it
We actually gave Morgan and Kayla a scratch off prize
Next it was the adults turn
It was really hard to find since it blended in so well
Our son Jeremy was the winner,.   We were laughing so hard.  We can't wait until next year in hopes that Jennifer and her family will be celebrating with us. 
 
We really did have a nice Christmas.  Full of family, love and laughter. 
 
 
and on another note about family and love
Today December 30th would have been my nephew Adams 33rd birthday.  He is celebrating in heaven with Jesus today.  Happy Birthday Adam!   Someday we will be there to celebrate with you again.
