Before the tree goes down, I wanted to post some pictures of our tree and some of the featured ornaments. This is the first time in a couple of years that we didn’t just have the Hokie tree. Two years ago, I loved the idea of a silver and gold tree, so we have many of those ornaments (so classic!). We also got many of Tim’s childhood ornaments, and I am so happy that they now have a home on our tree!
The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade 2012 ornament from my mom to commemorate my brother’s 2nd appearance in the parade!
My favorite of the ornaments: one made by “Timothy” probably when he was 2. His mom was very kind to let me have this, as I knew it needed a safe home on our tree. I love this one most of all!
The Carnival Miracle: our honeymoon cruise ship.
The ornament that Tim’s grandmother gave me the year before she passed away. I am so happy that I was able to meet that extraordinary woman.
One of the sparkly “gold” ornaments. Those that know me will be shocked that it is glittery.
An Irish ornament. I think my mom gave this to us last Christmas.
One of Tim’s childhood ornaments.
An ornament that we inherited from Tim’s mom last Christmas.
A beautiful glass ornament with a menorah on one side and a Christmas tree on the other. My Aunt Liz and Uncle Lee gave this to us.
The ring bowl that we used for our wedding.
An old dreidel ornament that I inherited from my family.
“Our First Christmas Together 2009” (our first married Christmas… our 7th together)
