Before having kids, I was one of those people with a color theme to my tree. I had matching ornaments and they all coordinated. I spaced them nice and even and it looked so perfect. Now? My tree is full of homemade, personalized, and sentimental ornaments. I kind of love it! It's obviously much more eclectic but I love that each ornament has meaning! We don't have a ton on our tree this year because I decided to go "hookless" and eliminate most bulbs. All of our ornaments are hung with ribbon for safety reasons. We only have a few fragile ornaments and I placed those at the top out of Carson's reach.
Here are some of my favorite ornaments on our tree this year:
Carson's 2012 "Baby's First Christmas" with one of his 6 month photos.
Carson's hand print from last year. It was fun to see how much his hand has grown in a year!
Our 2012 family photo ornament.
An embroidered ornament my aunt made for Carson (she made one for me every year when I was little too!)
A Yorkie ornament for Chip & Dixie!
My dad had an ornament VERY similar to this as a child. My step mom found one for Carson to hang every year just like his Grandpa! <3
Our 2012 family ornament. This was a gift and I love it!
Carson's hand print Santa ornament we made this year.
Our 2013 family ornament complete with a pregnant snowlady momma!
Chip and Dixie's paw print ornaments. They're hard to capture in a picture but you get the idea....
Do you have any favorite ornaments on your tree?
