These Are A Few of My Favorite Ornaments

Our holiday decorating has scaled back over the last few years.  Trust me years ago when Aaron was little we went all OUT!  I mean I even changed to Christmas themed dishes and no room in that large house was left undecorated!  Today it’s a tree, maybe a bit more in the living room.  No dishes are changed.  Last year we even down sized our tree.

This year I came home from working the late shift to find the house decorated.  I couldn’t lift, I couldn’t stretch so Mike it did all!  I was thrilled.  The lights were up outside and the tree was tastefully decorated inside with just a few of our most favorite ornaments.  Having gone to a smaller tree less is needed to complete it.

So enjoy a tour of a few of our favorite pieces.  Some maybe battered from years of use, others may not be perfect but they are to us.

A wreath from preschool - do you see a theme developing here?  Yep a gift from my son.  He made it while in preschool.

I've not had a tuxedo kitty in my adult life but this one of several of my kitty ornaments.  It's a hand painted egg one from Russia.  I like it very much and gives me hope that if the Cold War came to an end so can many other horrid things.

That’s it for this year’s tour. Next year I’ll highlight a few more. Until next time!

  1. Love your ornaments, well, all but perhaps Spiderman. Don’t much care for Spiderman. Superman is much better. Anyway, my favourites are paper or handmade or sentimental types of ornaments.

    Happy Christmas!

    • LOL Well even Spidy is sentimental back when the first Toby McGuire Spidy came out and Aaron was little but LOVED the movie was when that ornament joined our tree.

      Yes we down sized our tree this year so the ornaments on it are all sentimental – I’ll highlight more next year.
