I have ornaments hanging on my tree just like everyone else. I have the ones I bought 20 years ago that are made of glass and, every once in a while, break.

But the ones I hold dearest to my heart are the ones that are handmade by the ones I love.

Do you hang them too?

Here are a few examples of the ones on my tree. Who can resist the ornament the kids make in school and bring them home to you?

Who can forget the 1st ornament you were given for your first child?

Or an ornament that someone carefully put your name on?

I wish I had my parent's old ornaments that we used to hang on the tree when we were kids. But it's ok. We are making new memories with the new people that have arrived in our lives.
