Fun with Ordaments

This one was made special by my godmother, Renee. I just loved this tradition that her and my godfather, Jeff did for my brothers and I when we were little. Every Christmas for so many years she got us all a thoughtful ordament. As you can see this is one from 1987. There are a few from Renee and Jeff on my mom and dad's tree every Christmas. Thanks for such a great tradition R & J.
I have now started the same tradition with my neices and children every Christmas.

I have a new filter for my camera and I wanted to try it out. It is a cross hair filter. As you can see, it makes a "cross hair" with the lights.

My youngest neice.. Lauren when she was smaller..

My neice when she was still a baby, now 5 yrs. old.

What ordament is really special to you?

That made my heart smile to see the girls so little. I love my ornaments that the girls have made and are hanging up w/ twist ties!
See you in a few days!
