and I wanted to play along!
Ornaments full of Memories
Ornaments that Make Me Smile
8. This snowflake is my little guy’s very first handmade ornament! The day after Thanksgiving we head to east TN (if we’re not already there) and go to a fun event called the Fantasy of Trees. They have a lot of crafting for kids to do and its where we always get our photos with Santa taken. My little guy was just a mere 3 months old when he put his little inked thumb on this premade ornament!
9. I love ornaments that remind me of my friends. It gets harder and harder for us to get together as the years go on since we are so spread out. But having these ornaments on the tree helps me feel that they are nearby during the holidays.
10. My husband’s grandmother always find the cutest little ornaments to give us each year. She buys a lot of them at craft fairs. This snowman is one of my favorites! And whenever I see them on the tree they always make me smile.
11. We have a local couple we love to get together with, but it doesn’t happen near as often as we like. But still, they are very in tune with the things we like and always seem to latch on to one thing that has us mesmerized at a given moment and find a way to turn it into a gift for us at Christmas. These little oragami birds are just such an example!
So what are some of your favorite ornaments?
I would love to hear about them!!
