Special Christmas Ornaments

I've decided to share some of my special Christmas ornaments that I cherish. This little reindeer is made out of pipe cleaners. I made him in the third grade. He's been on our tree every year since. In fact, last year we used him as an example for our Wednesday night children's group and they made some interesting reproductions.

This is my other little reindeer. I've had him for as long as I can remember. You can sort of see where he's been broken a couple of times. Much sobbing was done on my part. My dad has glued him back together each time. Thank you daddy. Now that I look at him it sort of looks like he has chicken pox. That's pretty funny.

This little bear has been in our family for a long time. I'm not sure how I ended up with her but she's really cute. She makes me smile.

This ornament is older than me. It's one of several that my mom has had for years. Each of us kids have some from my mom. They are funky colored with glitter on them with cool designs.

This was taken when I was 1 year old. It also makes me smile.

This is one of two little Nigerian men that my parents brought back from there. I always remember our Christmas' on the mission field. He's hand carved and playing a drum. I love unwrapping them each year.

These are just a few. I'm saving the whole tree for the tour of homes in a few days. Stop back by.

I love your old ornaments, too. It's funny how something so small can bring back the biggest memories and warm our hearts.
