This is exactly how I feel about the ornaments on our tree. Go check out her ornaments, she has two posts with a third planned for later. Here are some of my favorite ornaments...
My Pa Pa made several of these crosses in 1994. This is the last thing I put on the tree each year. When the craziness of the season clutters my head - it helps me focus on what is important. For the past several years my grandparents have celebrated Jesus' birthday with him - how cool is that! Can you imagine eating all the cake you want and not having to worry about the calories?! No comments from the Theologians - let a girl dream!
Jeremy went to college in San Angelo and we lived there our first year of marriage. We go back at least once a year, while there we must eat Henry's Mexican food and I have to go shopping at Eggemeyer's and SugarBaker's.
In case you are not familiar with this scene, it is the Duomo in Florence, Italy - from our trip in 2006 . What unbelievable memories - we are longing for the day when we can go again.
Okay you may be saying - Stitch is one of your favs? Why yes, he is - this from our first trip to Disney World in 2005. Since I was a little girl I dreamed of going there; it was as magical as I had imagined. Jeremy picked this one out on our trip to Glorieta and Santa Fe in August. The only ornament I have left that we bought for our first tree in 1996. He originally was popping out of a present but the box and lid broke. He is a sad looking little fellow now.
I was given this as a gift in the summer of 1992, while working at Glorieta. I made so many friends and memories that year; little did I know that the next summer I would meet Jeremy.
My grandma had an ornament on their tree for everyone in our family. I always loved finding mine each year.
I love this one that our oldest made last year -notice the crooked hat. So cute!!
This place holds a special place in my heart because this is where my adventure in becoming an adult began. Julie and Amy - I am so glad we did life together, even if it was for a short time, but I am so thankful we are still friends today! This is where I first watched Anne.
Thanks for going down memory lane with me. I would love to see some of your favorite ornaments on your blog this Christmas season!
