Yesterday I told you I would show you some ornaments that weren't pretty hand stitched ones so here we go.
We have lots of fireman ornaments. I usually get at least one each year. One of these days I'll take all of these and do just a fireman tree. (hubby was a firefighter for 24 years. 21 years on the paid dept. 3 volunteer before that)
I've always bought the kids an ornament every year. They usually pick the one they want, but this year a I picked this one for baby boy and his bride. They don't have a tree at their apartment so I have it on my tree.
I also buy one for hubby and myself (in addition to the fireman ornament) every year.
Here is the reindeer made from a dog biscuit and pipe cleaners. We have managed to keep it by hanging it at the top of they tree every year to keep the dog from getting it! I think baby boy made in kindergarten or first grade. (he is 21) There is also a reindeer made out of a plastic spoon but it is on the back and I couldn't get to it to take a pic.
Since the kids get to pick their own ornaments, we have an assortment. A sledding wiener dog, Spiderman, there are Star Wars, Pirates, Dr. Seuss, quite a variety.
Timothy usually either picks a Taz or a truck.
One day the kids will have their own homes and trees and they can take their ornaments with them if they want to - then I will have to do some heavy duty shopping to fill my tree!
Off to work with me. This is my last day to work this year - then I'm off until Jan. 2, 2008!
