Some of my favorite Christmas Ornaments

These are just some of the ornaments on the tree. First is one of the first ornaments I purchased when I "grew up" and had my own tree. (See Rue I told you I had a set of bells just like yours!)
Next two glass ornaments I just love the Santa and the little glass snowman.
Three glass balls.
King Tut from the King Tut exhibit in Chicago. (My youngest went through an egyptian phase)
Fat Santa.
Fat Snowman.
My youngest had a white snow suit when she was a baby and this ornament reminded me of her.
My Santa lightbulb.
I just thought this guy was cute.
My husband is a carpenter so here is his tool man ornament.
His saw ornament.
His level ornament.
I have two of these. They aren't the prettiest but my dad brought them home to my mom on there first Christmas in 1960 so they are as old as I am.
This is the first ornament I bought for my oldest daughter. (I'm not sure why she hasn't taken this one to her house with all of the others?)
Each year I get my three girls a special ornamnet. Some of them have their names on them and some of them are just the same ornament for all three. This is one of my youngest's ballerina ornaments.
This is her carousel horse.
This is one of my middle daughters ornaments.
I try my best to get an ornament when we travel somewhere as a family. This one is from New York.
Out of order but this is my youngest when she was 5 yrs old. (Isn't she adorable!)
Here is another of my middle daughter's ornaments.
Back to travel ornaments. This one is from our trip to Chimney Rock.
This one from Washington DC.
The home of Mark Twain in Hannibal MO.
One of our Chicago trips.
A favorite from Jamaica.
One of our best trips was to Biltmore Mansion. (Awesome)
Well that's it for now. Sorry about getting them mixed up a little bit. There are many more on this and a couple of other trees. Maybe I will save some for next year. Believe it or not I purchased more ornaments on my girl's day out with my daughters yesterday. I'll show them when I post about the trip tomorrow.

You have some really sweet ornaments. My daughter danced for many years so most of the ones I sent with her when she moved out were ballerina's.

You have some really beautiful ornaments. So many reminders. I love the popcicle picture frame. I have a few with pictures of my children.
Those cherished ones made at school.
Thanks also for your note about my nativity. It was my Grandmother's. I cherishit. Did yours come down in the family?
Thanks again,
