Wordful Wednesday

 Every year Chris and I buy a special Christmas ornament to celebrate our life together. Our first Christmas, I bought him 2. The one pictured above and also a cute little bear holding a key that says "New Home 2007" or something like that (I guess I could go look, but no, I'm already typing, screw it.) Anyways, we buy one every year, 3 years together - we should have 3, right? Well 4, because our first year I bought 2. Right? No. We have 9 "special" ornaments on our tree. Besides all the others (Josh gets a new one every year too), we have three times the special ornaments we should have. Let's see... we have the:

First Christmas Together heart (pictured)
New Home 2007 (from when he bought the house that November)
Disneyland Castle ball (from our 1st trip together)
Lenox bride and groom (from when we got married)
Mickey & Minnie Bride and Groom (from honeymoon @ Disneyland)
2 different wine glass ornaments (we love wine, what can I say)
Silver bells ornament (with little fake gemstones! lol)
Fireplace with stockings ornament 2009 with fake rubies (to match the silver bells, maybe?)

Seriously. Nothin like going a little overboard. Oh well - welcome to my life.

Here is Joshua's favorite ornament (his from last year)

brought to you by:


  1. I need to start this tradition of getting ornaments for each year. I'm pretty sure we'll do it this year. we did it the first year, but not last year (for Jonathan) and one for our first year of marriage.

  2. I have been buying ornaments every year since 1969 when my first child was born. They're wonderful to look at each year, and think I remember when. Christmas time always has happy memories. Happy Holidays! I'm your newest follower. Hope you can find time, and do the same.

  3. Dolly - thanks so much for reading and I will head your way as well. Merry Christmas!
