I can't choose just one favorite Christmas ornament. I love all the ornaments I have because most of them have been gifts from family and friends over the years and they tell the story of my life. I have a snowman that is dressed in colors of the school I taught at. I have ornaments made by my 95 year old grandmother. I have ornaments representing seasons of life- a pregnant smore ornament. I don't have a themed tree well maybe if you count our history as one. Our tree represents us and every ornament has a story and I love to share those stories with friends and I can't wait to share them with Lance when he gets older. So my favorites are:
Jeff got me this one. I love it because it is so whimsical and happy.
This is one I got when I was in preschool from my aunt and uncle. I loved Strawberry Shortcake. This ornament represents my early childhood and reminds me of when times were simple.
This is my baby bell, my aunt and uncle gave it to me for my 1st Christmas. It is missing a piece and has been glued back together, but it was my very first ornament.
My mom is very organized and she has a list that she made that included description of ornament, who gave it to me, and the year, so I can remember the history of every ornament. I have started this for Lance too and I hope it will be as special to him one day too.
