Christmas Joy

I love to collect ornaments.  Not expensive  or a certain brand but ornaments that mean something to me or members of our family.  Something that symbolizes where we've been or things we've done together as a family over the last year.
New Cardinal for the year.  Cardinals  or little red birds hold a special place in the heart of our family

BLown glass ballon ornament purchased at Balloon festival this year  (2012)

Nutcracker bought at local production of the Nutcracker.  I took my niece and daughters to watch.  Its was short sweet and fun

Elf not a shelf elf but still and elf, my youngest so wanted and elf to sit around the house this year.  This was given to us by a dear friend
The ornaments on the tree are all different and kind of go together.  They all hold special memories in them and its fun to watch the kids put them on the tree and talk about the stories that go with each one
