Here are a few of my favorites.
Starting at the top, we bought the angel on our honeymoon...16 years ago...in Stowe, Vermont.
Our first year as parents. Carson was 6 weeks old on his first Christmas. What a special Christmas!
My Grandparents had ornaments of us as kids on their tree and, somehow, I ended up with these two. My Grandma made them and they are now a good 30+ years old. That's my sister and I in the one above (I'm in the yellow). My grandma also crocheted those outfits. :)
And this is just me. I was probably about 5 in this picture. I've always loved these ornaments and started putting up a picture ornament for each of my kids every year.
We were given this ornament the year before we brought Elise home. Ladybugs are a sign of good luck in the Chinese adoption community.
Here's Elise's first Christmas with us. She was 19 months old in this picture and the perfect age to enjoy her first Christmas celebration!
Elise went through a stage where she latched on to one particular stuffed pig and liked all things pig. Piggy went EVERYWHERE with her for about 3 years...her teachers even suggested we break the rules and Piggy was allowed to come to school with her.
I just love the walk down memory lane when I look at our tree.
