LOOK what I bought myself for Christmas!!! The Cricut Expression and I love it!!! I had no idea I could be so creative!!!
Frank surprised me the other night with this Willow Tree Angel Sanctuary and the Holy Family. I have wanted this for so long!!! Thank you Babe!
My collection has been in our bedroom on top of the Armoire , so I decided to put it on my antique hutch in the dining room. I think I will leave it there!
I have so many favorite Christmas ornaments, but heres just a few, and then some of my favorite decorations.
These are a few of the ornaments that my Momma has made my kids through the years. Oh how I miss that.This is our 2007 Christmas ornament. We were so hoping that Franceska would be home by now.Astruds 2nd grade ornament!! Too cute, where does the time go???One of Astruds many 1st Christmas ornaments, oh how this one brings back such sweet memories!One of Stevens favorites, "The Grinch". I love this ornament, I can still see the smile on his face when he opened it up!This is Christophers from 2005, I love this little chubby Snowman!! Franceskas ornament from 2007Last year Christopher, Amy and Joshua gave Frank and I this ornament and I love it, it is just so beautiul.
I have had this ornament for at least 15 or 16 years, I can't tell you where I bought it, or why but I love him! He might be scary to some but he is "HOME" to me.My neice Jade gave us this ornament a few years ago, and it is so special to me. But I have to admit that when I hold it in my hands a little sadness goes thru me, because she is in Jr.High now and I wanted her to stay little forever. I love that girlie so much.
I love this ornament so much, it was Christmas 2004, Steven was home on leave from Iraq and in his uniform, Astrud is in hers, and Jade, Lily and a 3 month old Rayn looking as pretty as ever!The little Angel , my sister Kerry bought for Astrud and one for Franceska which has been living in our living room for a couple of years now and the Bear says , Parents to be 2007!
The paint is wearing off but it says, Mommy and Daddy to be 2006! ( still waiting)A friend gave this to me and I have only had it two years, but everytime I read it , it just makes me smile!
This is our Manger, my parent's bought Kim, Kerry & Ricky, and Frank I all one several Christmas's ago and I think it is so beautiful, and special to me. So last year I gave our two boys and their wives their own Manger and I hope they cherish theirs like I do ours.
Back in the day my Mom did alot of ceramics and made my Grandmothers and all of my Aunts their own Ceramic Christmas Tree and I decided 3 years ago that I was going to make me one if it killed me, and I did! Who knew!!!! But I think it is so pretty!
I know this has been a really long post, but you all know by now that I am an open book and I just wanted to share some really dear parts of my life with you. God bless all of you.
