An ORNAMENTal tale

December 5, 2009

Don't you just love getting out your Christmas decorations.  Just the other day I was telling Chelsea, besides for the overwhelming part, I really do enjoy decorating for the holidays, and a part of that decorating is remembering the details about the decorations and ornaments.  One of your favorite decorations from a friend or the mouse nobody stole from you when you picked numbers at the Michigan Christmas party... 


And there are stories with ornaments too!  For years we did a girlfriend ornament exchange with the girls in Michigan.  Each year you would get and make 15+ ornaments and during that time I collected so many ornaments I had to dedicate a "girlfriend" tree for just those such ornaments.

And so today I began decorating those "theme" trees and enjoyed reminiscing about the different ornaments and where they came from...


 Can you believe one of the girls made 15+ of these adorable ornaments!

 and this adorable snowman... I remember chatting with my friend Linda as she was feverishly trying to finish them up before the party that night.  She had a stroke this past February and is still recovering... now how priceless is that memory and laughter we shared about this ornament!

this star was made by my girlfriend who has since moved to Florida

 and this creepy yet adorable spider made by my sister!
