Christmas holds some of my most favorite things, one of them are our ornaments. I just love when we pull them out every year and I get to look at them sparkle on the tree, just like they are brand new or just freshly made. Here are some of my most favorites:
We just had to have this bird, C and I admired the fancy one my uncle had on his tree and decided ours was not complete without one as well… and they are just silly.
I love this one, it is B and my “First” Christmas ornament, although we had spent three Christmas’s together since we met, 2008 was our first official Christmas together as Husband and Wife, and ’til death do us part.
I love how this red glittery star with silver bell sparkles in the lights on the tree. When I look at it, I want to sing (to whomever is around), “Darling you are my shining star, yes you are…”
This one is for C, I love it. She is SO great on her saxophone that I couldn’t resist getting it for her. Her and B debate on whether the treble clef or bass clef is better. I stay out of it since I was in choir and used the treble clef (see Red Glitter Star above). I will put in that the treble clef is much prettier, don’t you agree?
This is our shooting star – go ahead, you can make a wish! – it is white an glittery and hangs on a branch that is perfect to hang since it is almost 9″ long. If we turn on the fan it starts to twist and you can see the glitter lights come to life, it is so fun!
Rudolph! How did this guy get to be last on the list of many? C made this bad boy a few years ago and I love it. This year he is chilling on a branch just below eye level and he is quite the catch. His nose is a sparkly red pom pom and he totes a green bell around his neck, what Christmas tree is complete without a Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer?
