My favorite Christmas Ornaments

When I was growing up, Santa always brought my brother, sister and I an ornament for one of our Christmas presents. He always did such a good job in hopes that one day we could use them all on our own trees one day. And that is exactly what I do now! :)  I love getting them out each year and looking at them and remembering back to when I was younger.

It was always one of the first things we did when we woke up in the morning. We would first get up and see our Santa present under the tree, grab our stockings and then hunt for the ornaments on the tree. Loved every part of that tradition!

I wanted to show you all some of my favorites from back in the day...

I love this one as you hook it up to the Christmas lights and it sets the background...

A music box that plays music and the ballerina dances...

Way back from 1987....
This one is one of my I have a whole bunch of these that my parents made when I was just a baby I believe....(correct me if I am wrong Mom) :)
Now this one didn't belong to was my Grandma and Grandpa B's. They had one of each of their five grandchildren on the tree...wasn't I a cutie!!? Look at the hair! lol! I love it just because it came from my Grandparents tree...sweet memories of them and how much they loved us.

So there you have it...some of my ornaments from the past...and they warm my heart.... Happy Monday!!

I love that Santa put ornaments on the tree for yall - that is such a cute tradition.
