Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. I love pretty much everything about it, and my most favorite part of all of my decorations is my Christmas tree. I've been collecting ornaments basically forever and each time I hang one on the tree I always think back to years past. So today we are hosting a Christmas Ornament Show and Tell. Join myself, Beth, Justine, Stephanie and Heather and show us your favorite Christmas ornaments =)
I really could have taken pictures of every.single.ornament and bored you to death by telling you when I got it and why I love it, but I spare you the hundereds of oranments and show you just my favorites =)
If you've read my blog long enough you know my love of the vintage red truck with a christmas tree on the back. So when I found this particular ornament at a kiosk in the mall a couple of weeks ago I fell in love =)
It's just perfect!! My mother in law also gave me a red truck ornament a few years ago and it's definatley one of my favs as well.
I love the homemade ornaments that Emma has made at school, and they will forever be on my tree. Even when she moves out I don't think these are ones that I will pass down to her ;)
I love the finger snowmen that she made when she was only 5 =)
Last year at Alyx's Daycare they made salt dough hand print ornaments.
Her hand was so little compared to now!
The night that Brian and I got engaged back in December of 2005, I bought an ornament at Rockefeller Center, in NYC to always remember our trip and engagement there.
I love the personalized ornaments, and I usually try to get one every year.
We got this particular ornament the year we became a family of 4 =) In 2013.
My mom doesn't do much of a tree anymore so when I asked her this year if I could have some of my ornaments from when I was a kid I was so excited when she told me to take whatever.
This was my baby's first Christmas, 1982 =)
When Brian and I bought our house, I of course bought and ornament to commemorate it.
When we went on our Honeymoon to where else but Disney World, I had to get this ornament =)
I may cry if this ever breaks!
My dad's side of the family is Swedish, and I love these Swedish ornaments.
They are both older than I am!
Whenever we vacation somewhere we try to get an ornament. This year we got this Minnie Mouse ornament. When you pull the string the legs and arms move.
I could go on and on with all my ornaments, but now it's your turn! Join us and link up below and tell us about some of your favorites. I can't wait to see what you all share =)
Have a great Day!!!
