A few weeks ago, Kaelyn was looking at the ornaments on our tree and found the one that I got when Tyler had his first Christmas. She continued to look and then ask me, "Mom, where is my babies first Christmas ornament?" I had to tell her that I didn't get one for her because that was a time in our life that we couldn't financially afford to get one, some weeks we didn't know how we were even going to be able to afford diapers let alone a babies first Christmas ornament. So that night I went on line to see if I could find one from the year she was born, no luck. Then a few days later I was doing some shopping with my sister and found a place in the mall that had ornaments that you could personalize. To my delight, there was the perfect ornament for Kaelyn, so I purchased it and had her name put on it and also the year she was born. When the lady that was working there asked me the year I wanted put on there she had to laugh and say that so far that had been the furthest year she had to go back for any ornament. Here are the ornaments for both Tyler and Kaelyn's first Christmas.
Most everything else that I have sitting up on the counters and entertainment center and then hanging on our Christmas tree is snowmen. I just love my snowmen.
