I wanted to share just a few of my favorite tree ornaments.
Some old... Some new
This one I call Rudolph, despite the fact his red nose is gone.
Growing up we had a kids tree,
the bright silver metal tree with the color wheel light at the base.
Remember those anyone?
Believe it or not, my mom still owns this "antique" tree!
Each year I would seek our this ornament to place on that tree,
OK, to be honest...
each year I still seek out this ornament to place on the tree!
My first Christmas in marriage,
we lived in an apartment and owned no ornaments to speak of.
We were able to buy a real tree, real cheap.
But with no budget and no ornaments we bought
two bags of raffia and tied bows all over the tree.
To this day we still use the same raffia bows on our tree
Come our second and third year of marriage we
decided to make our own ornaments using dough.
That is the story behind this tiny house!
This little angel was another of my childhood ornaments.
I would have been about 5 when I received her!
And most importantly, this nail hangs on my tree
to remind us of why we celebrate Christmas,
For Jesus is the Reason for the Season!
And while this season is one to celebrate the Birth of Christ,
I pray I'll never forget the price.
Thank you for allowing me to share with you today.
