Searching for the Pickle

Photo Sharing - Video Sharing - Photo Printing

Guh-guh and Grandpa have a tradition at their house of hiding a pickle on their Christmas tree, and whoever finds the pickles gets a special monetary surprise! We usually forget about it until my mom starts hinting around, but Elliott remembered this year. He kept making eyes at me trying to get me to start looking (I was sitting by tree). I finally figured out what he was talking about and started discreetly looking for it. Then the others remembered and we started frantically searching. I was the lucky one this year! Hooray!
Guh-guh and Grandpa also have lots of stockings hanging around decorating their house, and this year they put surprises in them, too. They left a note on the hearth telling us about this. I was the only one who saw the notes, so I had a head start! These are really fun traditions that we REALLY get into :)


  1. Great traditions. I especially like the stocking idea.

  2. What fun!!! I love the pickle hunt!

  3. I thought we were the only family that had a Christmas pickle! My brother made one in school years ago, and we still hang it on the tree. We don't hunt for it, although I did know that was the tradition.

  4. LOL -- that's hilarious! Congrats on the expert pickle finding!
