One of my favorite things to to at Christmas time is unpack my box of Christmas ornaments.
It is kind of like unpacking a time capsule every year.
I have an ornament from my very first Christmas.
An ornament that came from a Happy Meal when I was in grade school
(The cat from Oliver and Company...it played music for over 20 years before the battery died!)
Ornaments with each of my Grandmother's pictures.
A little car from the year I turned 16.
Since I can remember putting my own ornaments on the tree, this little one has been my favorite.It is a little glass heart. When we had colored lights on the tree, I would always pick the best color to put this little heart next to so it would glow with the light. It is so delicate, simple because it is just glass, but complex because it is hallow inside. I remember just watching it glow on the tree. It is my favorite Christmas ornament.
Do you have a favorite Christmas ornament?
I'm saving pictures of the whole Christmas tree for next week's
