Christmas ornaments

I love decorating the Christmas tree each year. Last year we were in an apartment getting ready to move into our new house so we didn’t decorate at all. We were in a new house with almost no furniture and didn’t have our decorations(in storage). We drove to see family and didn’t stay home for Christmas Eve and Day.

This year we got out everything we own for the holidays. It was fun to see the family ornaments after missing a year. The little ones of popsicle sticks and foam the kids and grandkid made over the years. The old ones passed down from generation to generation. The ones that represent a person or a place we’ve been. And the new ones we get each year to make the year.

My mother-in-law gets us a new one each year too. They are beautiful crystal and silver and bright. This is this year’s one!

Do the ornaments on your tree have special stories too?
