Special Ornaments

Every year we get our girls an ornament that reminds us of them to preserve childhood memories. Its fun putting the ornaments on the tree, reflecting on their meaning. This year we hadn't found one by the time Amanda came so we let her pick out her own ornament and we found a perfect one for LeAnne.

My 3 fave people in front of The Village Shoppe. It's such a neat place because they're are 26 little shops in once place. I love there window scene! It's a nativity and the sign reads The Reason For the Season.

Amanda chose this beautiful black star.

We chose a Christmas pickle for LeAnne because she loves pickles! There is also a neat legend behind the Christmas pickle. It is the last ornament put on the tree, it is hidden in the tree and the child who finds the pickle has a year of good luck and gets an extra present.

This is the 1st ornament John & I got together the year we were married. It is always hung near the top of the tree.

My mama made us a few of these Snowman ornaments! :-)

LeAnne's 2007 Christmas footprint ornament.

Amanda's beautiful patriotic girl. I think we got this one in 2001.

This is one of John's keepsake ornaments - They have his name & the year they're were given on them.
