a christmas tradition

I have bought Ty a Christmas ornament every year since we started college in 2003. It is such a fun tradition! If you know Ty at all, then you know Christmas is his favorite holiday. I can only imagine the amount of energy he had as a child at this time of the year.

The past several year the ornaments have all been doctors. I try to find something that represents the year or one of his hobbies, etc. The past four years have been consumed by medical school and I don't see that changing anytime soon since he has chosen a 5 year residency program.

This year's ornament is a doctor, but more importantly it is a specific type of doctor. This year has been all about choosing a specialty (general surgery) and applying for residencies.
Cute little surgeon!

  10. We try to get new ornaments every year, but they usually are from where we've been that past year. I like the idea of connecting it to what's going on in your lives!
