Favorite Ornaments

Every year I love unpacking my Christmas ornaments and rediscovering my favorites. Many of them bring back memories of Christmases past.

Our Starbucks ornaments are definitely a favorite.

This beautiful ornament was given to me by a student my first year of teaching. It's a little hard to see, but it has a crocheted star hanging inside it.

When I did my student teaching a mom had all the students sign this wooden apple for me.

We had to have a monkey on the tree, so I was excited when I found this ornament a couple of years ago.

We got a few of these golden ornaments at a Christmas bazaar in Belgium.

Here's another special one from Belgium.

My family has had these reindeer and bears for as long as I can remember.

A new favorite, in honor of Kirk's favorite football team.

I look forward to seeing what gets added to the collection in the future...
