{Christmas Ornament Show & Tell 2015}

To be honest, I didn't put out all of our most sentimental and precious ornaments this year. I remembered that I would have 2 five year old boys in my house every day that love to throw things and have sword fights. So, for the sake of not breaking those I chose to keep them safely packed away this year.

However, these are some of my favorite that are on our tree.

Our first family ornament:

Mason's first Christmas {2010} and first time meeting Santa. This is before Santa lifted him over his head and he started crying!

Both of these are from various trips to the Christmas tree farm.

This Shasta camper. Camping is one of our favorite things to do as a family and I dream of owning a Shasta one day. Preferably a turquoise one with original interior, but I wouldn't say no to a red one either.

Mason picked out this snowman a couple of years ago. I actually tried to talk him out of it because I thought it was creepy. But it has grown on me and is actually one of my favorites. It has a vintage feel to it.

Nate's mom and I made these wine cork reindeer ornaments together one year. We had a good time making them.

Also from Mason's first Christmas. And also a gift from Nate's parents.

Mason and I read the Christmas story together a couple of years ago and then created this ornament. I adore it.

Have you shared some of your favorite ornaments on the blog? I would love to see them!


  1. Our First Family Christmas is a family of snowmen too! Hehe. That peanut ornament is too darling. I'm noticing a lot of red, is your tree mostly red ornaments or a mix of everything?

  3. I love seeing all of these ornament posts, maybe I'll do one for Thursday. Love opening all of the ornaments each year and really remembering why we got them. The last polar express one and the peanut one love it!

  4. I love sentimental ornaments! I want to do better at collecting them from our different vacations!
