Tuesday Blog Hop...Favorite Ornaments

Today's blog hop is supposed to be about my favorite ornament, but I found that an impossible task... I don't have just one favorite--I have many! I've chosen to share the ornaments of my grandchildren and their parents.

I ordered this ornament for our tree the year that Madison was born. I put her hospital picture in the frame. This is the fourth Christmas that it has hung on our tree.
It was hard to get a close up picture of this angel ornament because it hangs near the top of the tree, but this was my daughter, Brandy's, ornament on her first Christmas. It's been hanging on our tree for 31 years. Brandy is Madison's mother.

I bought this sled ornament for my oldest son, Brett, on his second Christmas. It's been on the Christmas tree every year since then. The ornament is about 25 years old. Brett is Caden's daddy.

This was Caden's first ornament on my tree. I bought it and put a picture of Cade and his family in it. The picture was taken on the day they brought him home from the hospital. This is the second year that I've had it on the tree.
There are so many more ornaments on our Christmas tree that I love. I can look at the tree as it slowly rotates in it's stand and see bits and pieces of my life on that tree...
I see some of the ornaments from mine and Ed's first year as man and wife...there are our baby's ornaments with dates of birth and weights on them...I see ornaments from work...we have ornaments from friends...I see ornaments from our vacations...there are ornaments that people made...I see ornaments that I made...I have a bird on the tree that came from my mother's funeral arrangement...I have a bird's nest in the tree that a relative (who has now passed away) gave us many years ago...there are 2 ornaments that hung on my mother's Christmas tree when I was a child...each ornament means something to me. I remember where I got most of them. I love each and every ornament on our lovely rotating Christmas tree...
