While I've been enjoying our Christmas tree, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite ornaments with you. Our tree topper varies from year to year, but most often has been a cardinal bird. This one is our second; we wore one out!
This frog ornament is Michaela's, and I love the icicle light set that we inherited from Paul's parents.
Michaela also has quite a few My Little Pony ornaments that I think are really cute. Women are always little girls on the inside. I love the icicle garland, too. It even sounds pretty when we're putting it on the tree; it tinkles.
There's a picture of Michaela at age 4, the Santa Bronco fan ornament that we got last year at the game in Denver, and a clip-on blue bird.
The little elf has been on our tree every year of our marriage. That's 31 years, which adds up to a lot of time for the little guy to sit on a prickly pine bough. The shiny pink Santa/pinecone ornament is just plastic, but it's one of my very favorites. It came from a company Christmas party many years ago.
And finally, a copy of our card for 2009:
...from owl of us!
