My Favorite Ornaments 2007

I have seen others sharing their favorite Christmas ornaments, most recently Lauren at Baseballs and Balls, and thought it was a great idea. I love all the ornaments that trim my tree, but I narrowed it down to a few of my most favorites. It would be hard for me to part with any of them because my mom has given me most of them secondly followed by my sister. My mom started a tradition when my sister and I were younger by giving us a Hallmark ornament every year. Then, when we married and moved out, she gave us our ornaments to take with us. She continues the tradition by giving the grandchildren one (or two or three) every Christmas.

This is one of my most recent gifts given to me last year at Christmas. Someone knew how much I love chocolate!
This was for Scamp's first Christmas. It looks kind of like a baby mobile only with tiny Christmas ornaments attached.
This one is in the shape of a Bible, and you open it to display the message -- the reason why we celebrate, the birth of our Lord, Jesus.
I have several Barbie ornaments, and I love Biker Barbie.
I love this one in red. They typically have a Holiday Barbie ornament every year. I have four total.
These are a couple I got for Beef our first Christmas. I didn't want to leave him out.
This one is for Our First Home. The year is 2002 (just in case you couldn't tell).
The list could go on and on. We didn't even put all the ornaments on the tree this year because we were afraid Scamp would have too much fun pulling them off. We were right! Only one ornament has been broken, but it wasn't one of my Hallmark ones. Now, the bottom part of the tree is bare since the ornaments have been moved to higher ground for fear of the tidal wave known as Scamp! Merry Christmas!

Fun! I love your ornaments. Maybe I'll put the tree up next year and snap a few photos of my own! :)

I've been seeing this post pop up too, fun. Being a chocolate lover myself, I LOVE that first ornament! Never seen one like that.

Love all your ornaments...and the stories behind them. Hope Scamp is feeling better.

Those are cute. Did you see the quilt I'm making Dash. It is star wars.

I am like you, I could of not narrowed down to one ornament- I love taking out the ornaments each year and revisiting the meories behind each.
Great choices!

Great ornaments! I'll have to take some pictures too - good idea! I give each of my children an oranament each year. When they leave and have their own trees, they should have a good start on decorating!

Oh, these are all wonderful! These are my favorite kind of ornaments, a mixture of memories and fun things. I love pulling them out and going "ooh, I forgot I had this one" or "I remember when we bought this one" or whatever. It makes decorating the tree so much more fun!

Merry Christmas!
