Tradition #12 - Give Christmas tree tours to any poor soul who asks about our tree and ornaments
You did ask, didn't you?
Our tree is a walk down memory lane for us. When we go somewhere, do something or experience something new, we buy a Christmas tree ornament to commemorate it. We find it really cuts down on souvenirs. And putting up the tree is so fun and memorable.
So take a seat and please keep all hands and feet inside at all times. We'll start our tour with our new ornaments. We brought back two from Hawaii,
one from Maui
one from the Polynesian Cultural Center
a homemade ornament painted by Scott at preschool.
and an inherited bird from my Matthews Grandparents.
We have ornaments from vacations (Newport Beach, CA)
another Newport one.
a business trip to Africa
Our girls' first experience going to the Nutcracker
a nativity from Jerusalem
My very own list making Santa (not the naughty and nice list)
A time capsule
Because we like singing around here (plus for Matt's stint in the Tab Choir) This is his favorite.
When we moved into our current home
From graduating from that great institution
We have lots of kid theme or made ornaments. Dawn made this last year.
Celebrating Rachel's birth (I love this one and the next, both made by the same talented person I don't know)
There are lots and lots more, just come on over and ask, or don't and pretend you did. Thanks for enjoying the show, and please deposit all garbage in the trash can on the way out.
