A few of my favorite ornaments

Years ago, I would stroll through the stores and see these fabulously decorated, elegant Christmas tree's . I loved how they were themed, the colors coordinated, and how lush and luxurious they were. But over the years, with each new kiddo, I have come to love my own more and more. It's by far not luxurious... definitely not lush. It has, however, something far greater than those department store tree's ... years of memories and traditions. Nope, I don't think I'd trade that for all the designer tree's in the world. Here are a few of the ornaments on our tree. Some are homemade, some from school, and some that just had a special whimsical significance at the time... enjoy!

I have a potluck Christmas tree, too. Not glamorous, but I love it. Sadly, it lacks an ornament crafted out of popsicle sticks ... you lucky duck.

Homemade ornaments, they're the best. My kids used to love making them.

I love that tradition of every year getting a different ornament that means something, or one that a kiddo made. Those are the best kind. I cant wait tell Ty brings home his creations. I hope your fam has a great Christmas, Im sure your dinner is gonna be amazing! take care
