As much as I've been dragging my feet to get the tree trimmed, when I finally got to it, it was like a walk down memory lane. That's what I love about our tree. It's like the story of our lives and every year I pull out the ornaments it's like reliving moments, events and vacations all over again. Plus there's the excitement of putting all the new ornaments on that we've collected since the last Christmas. While I have nothing against themed trees, heck we did one last year since all our things were in storage, there's nothing better than the hodge podge tree of ornaments you've picked up through the years. I wouldn't have it any other way. Here's a little peak into the 2010 chapters of our lives....ornament style!
I didn't go looking for an ornament to commemorate this occasion, it's not necessarily something I want to relive every year when I trim the tree....but when I saw this in the store, hanging ironically right next to the Baby's First Christmas ornaments, I knew I had to have it. Now every year when I see it hanging on the tree, I know my mom is there in spirit.
