Here are some ornaments hanging on the living room Christmas tree.
Some are old plastic ornaments that I found when I moved into my Grandmother's house. What I like about these little elves are their ears. They are sooo cute.
This is the first ornament as a married couple given to us by my sister.
This ornament represents the first Christmas for my first born, John.
This ornament was handed down to me. I was with my mother at a craft show when she bought this ornament and had it personalized with all our names.
I made this into an ornament. It is a lapel pin that was given out when my dad, nicknamed "Big "O" was running for office at a Knights of Columbus convention in Brownsville, Texas.
I make some ornaments like this snowman made of a styrofoam ball.
All Texans are proud to be from Texas and we like to show our pride any way we can, even on our Christmas tree.
Some are from weekend getaway spots like, Brenham, Galveston and Kemah. My favorite - well I could not choose just one. From the cheap homemade to the expensive store bought, they are all my favorite because each one brings back special memories when I unwrap and place it on that perfect branch on our tree. How about you, do you have a favorite ornament?

Love seeing your ornament collection. Ours is a lot like yours, with various ones picked up at significant places or to mark special occasions. My personal favorite is probably the construction paper star Santa I made in kindergarten. All my brothers and sisters made the same ones in kinder, and my mom used to hang them all every year. She gave me mine many years ago, and I love putting it on the tree.
