I love Christmas ornaments. I can't imagine not having a tree full of the strange assortment of cute, funky, and weird ornaments. It wouldn't feel like Christmas to me without them!

I know what you mean! I think I'd always have to have a tree--even a small one...

We got a Baby's 1st Christmas ornament this week. E. helped me pick it out. Then I found another I just had to get since it depicts J.'s literary namesake. So I decided to let E. pick his own out. We now have a Batman on our tree--that's replaced Star Wars recently for him.

A.'s parents have passed along some of the ornaments she made as a kid and E. is slowly adding some as well. I love that part of our tree!

I love those special parts of our tree as's always hard to leave it every year when we travel, but I know we'll enjoy it again when we return.
