What an assortment! You can see wooden ones that Mark made on the lathe, a cute snowman that Matt made in elementary school, and a funny macrame reindeer. Then there are the clay ornaments that Matt and I made in a workshop when he was all of three years old. When Mark and I were newlyweds, Sheila presented us with some beautiful handmade ornaments for our first Christmas tree. Years later, she made us some pretty ornaments crafted from sand - yes, sand. There are some little Christmas animals that I painted during my college years, along with some beaded bells and sputniks.
All of these wonderful treasures make the Christmas season special because they bring up so many memories. I can't remember when the water bill is due, but I remember where I got each one of these little ornaments. And, by the way, the tree looks so festive! A photo of it will surely be coming up in the next couple of weeks. So stay tuned. Happy decorating!
