Fun Monday-Favorite Christmas Ornament(s)

Kaytabug says: In the spirit of the season I would like to see your favorite Christmas tree ornament. Not to be confused with the WHOLE tree. I want you to zoom in and show me one or a few(you know I can’t choose just one!) of your favorite ornaments. If you don’t decorate a tree, show me your menorah or dreidel, Kinara, or Yule Log. I want to see your favorite decoration for this holiday season. – So go check out the rest of the participants!

Okay, so I couldn’t pick just one, so here’s the majority of my favorite ornaments as a kid. These are mine, on my tree now, each of my brothers also has a bear of some sort, a fuzzy mouse (theirs were white, mine a much cuter grey), a little moppet with a package, and 2 wooden ornaments. Oh, and we can’t forget about the little bitty rocking horses either! So tiny! It’s green, so blow up the picture and look for it! We either got them as gifts from someone when we were really little, or they were bought in threes so we’d each have one. Each one is a little different, but of course some of mine were girly and theirs not. Note- I scooched them close together for the picture, they aren’t really hung that close together. Just for pictures, kind of like little kids!

Someday I’d like to do the same for my own kids. Hopefully there will be old fashioned wooden ornaments again that I can find one day….

And my hubby and I have our own tradition, each year we’ve had a tree we’ve gotten an ornament. They are “couple” ornaments where someone is undoubtably snuggling someone else or sharing a special moment. They are entirely too cute. This year is Thumper and Mrs. Thumper and she kisses his cheek and there’s a little twist knob you can run to make his foot go up and down and “thump”. We havent had a tree for 3 years, 2004, 2005, and 2006. Should we try and catch up on ornaments or just let them be? What do you think?


  1. Of course enbiggen is a word… look it up in your Funk and Wagnell, much better than “Blow up the pictures” that sounds like a mad bomber on the loose, thanks for visiting.

  2. I think we have a few of those left from our first years of marriage.
    I had a coworker who always got the Hallmark special ornament each year.

  3. Ah, the candy cane horse. We’ll be making some soon, thanks to you:o) I like the doll on the sled the best.

    We didn’t start our ornament tradition till late with the kids, and I never could figure out whether to catch up or leave it be. As long as they all have the same number, I guess it’s okay.

    You’re right about nutcrackers. They are a little freaky/scary. The Nutcracker is such a beautiful, magical experience, though. If you just think about that, it takes away all the scary. Doesn’t it? I think I need your address. I’d like to send you a very special homemade ornament–a nutcracker biting off a clown’s head. How’s that for scary?:o)

  4. You need to catch up on the ornaments! What good excuse to go buy three new ornaments. And really nice ones, too.

    We do the yearly ornament too, though this year we let Punkin pick it out. Every time he walks past the tree he tells me how he loves the one he picked out!

  5. The ornaments are adorable!! I love them. I have so many from my childhood also, I treasure them too. Thanks for the comment on my blog!! I really enjoyed my first FM..

  6. Love your tradition. I’m all about the wooden/homemade type ornaments too. I have several non wooden ones that are cool; from places we’ve traveled (Holland, Taiwan, Japan, Austria, France, etc…) We add a new ornament for each of us every year. This year I tried to put our names on them & the yr recvd if enough room.

  7. Still making my way through the FM list! Great ornaments and like the majority of the people who commented, I have to agree the wooden ornaments are adorable.
