Jonathan's First Ornament from me and TO me from him!! 1980 and 82!

Our first ornament together. Love you my husband!!

Well, I am STILL in the prep for Christmas mode...On this side of the world aren't so many of us! We finally got the tree all decorated. Life has been so busy I've noticed the tree is drying out already, even before we got it all put all I hope for is that is doesn't loose all it's needles before my Michelle and Damon arrive. I always take pics of our trees. This year my two favorites are of the first bulb Jerry and I got for our first Christmas together as married folks, and a wonderful view of my son's first ornament and the first ornament he made me! I think he was 2. It is a bulb! COOL stuff!!

I have one last gift to make...a surprise for my girl and her sweet husband...They arrive just before Christmas. They are my present! No honey, I still want a little sumpin from you too...I'm like a kid...LOVE a present! Or is it like a woman?? HA!

Well my printer died yesterday in the middle of printing pics for family and friends Christmas, off to find another one...Oh Bother as Pooh would say...another errand!! Here's hoping you all have fewer errands and more studio time!! Happy Day to you all!!

Aren't ornaments wonderful? What a great connection to our pasts that can move forward through generations with all the wonderful stories accompanying them.

Have a Wonderful and Merry Christmas.

My daughter (youngest) just asked me if she can have all my old Christmas ornaments next year (right now she is living with us) as we bought a 4 ft. pre-lit tree last year - which required much tinier ornaments. Part of me doesn't want to give them up as I have many of those old favorites that the kids made too. Sigh...She has promised she will take care of them and continue to treasure them so I guess I will do that. Maybe it'll give her incentive to get her own place again????? LOL Can't wait to see the Christmas gifts you've been making. Hope you'll share photos after Christmas (as I know some of your family reads your blog). I still get that kidlike fun, though more from giving gifts. Never bothers me overmuch to not get anything.

That is amazing you would say that about the ornaments Autumn Leaves! I have my daughter's 1st baby ornament in a box to give to her this year...but I've been having second thoughts. I don't know if I'm ready yet! HA! Yes...I'll share the last pic of what I made the kids later...:) Have a most Merry of Christmases!!
