I have always loved collecting Christmas ornaments. I look forward to getting a few new ones each year for our family tree and for the kid's trees. I try to add a photo ornament to our collection, sentimental ornaments and always pick up ornaments from new places when we are traveling. Our trees are full of special ornaments and just a few fillers. We kept many ornaments in boxes this year and only decorated with a few of our favorites. I need to reorganize our collection better for next year and make sure to pick a tree that has strong branches to hold lots of ornaments.
Here's a little (late night) tour of our trees:
Our FAMILY Tree:
I'll start with my favorite new ornament of the year. I bought the sparkly frame and was trying to find a tiny family photo to put in it. Nothing was working and Olive was watching me. She knew none of our pictures were fitting so she offered to draw a family picture for the frame. I think it turned out perfect.
One of Kevin's grad students made him an ornament.
We have a variety of Santa on the beach ornaments and they always make us laugh. It's something we look forward to picking up at the beach every year.
My mom got me this blogger ornament a few years ago and it's still one of my faves.
I love these HOME ornaments for our first Christmas in our new home.
I love this photo ornament with his newborn picture in it and his baby booties.
I love all the bright colors, the smiling snowman, picture ornaments and baby booties.
Do you collect ornaments for your tree?
What's your favorite new one for this year?
