Christmas Tree

I set to work decorating our Christmas tree for the season, and I decided I would take a picture of each ornament. Over the years, my Mom has given me most of these, and each one has special memories. 
Given to Erik and me: Our First Home, Christmas of 2005

I actually bought this one: Joshua’s first Christmas!

Our first Christmas: 2005

This basket of kittens was always one of my favorites to hang. From my Uncle Mark in 1991.

This pudgy kitty was given to me in 1987 by my Aunt Tricia. I was 4 1/2.

Aunt Tricia also gave me this Popcorn Mouse in 1986.

This trio of fashion forward mice came to me one by one in ’00, ’01, and ’02 from my Mom.

I love Raggedy Ann and Andy! Given by my Mom in ’04. She marked the box “The last one :(” thinking she’d be done giving me ornaments because I’d be married. She hasn’t stopped. 🙂

This adorable pair came into my life in 2006 from–yep you guessed it–my Mom.

1994: From my Mom.

Also 1991, from my Mom. Notice the mouse theme? 🙂

2007–my ornaments are becoming more grown up!

This guy creeps me out. He’s to Erik from my Mom. 2007

He’s such a happy little musician! 1996 from the Mother.

Random. She’s not a mouse. 1995 from my Mom.

1995 as well–the year of the cartoons I guess! Our cats, no matter where on the tree we put him, always find Tweety!!


i LOVE this set! Mom gave the whole thing to me in 2003.

So adorable!

The cats always find this guy as well. Not sure why they love him but they do!

I LOVE LOVE the snowman!

Last but not least, my Mexican mouse from 1992.
Yay for Christmas, traditions and wonderful memories! Thanks for all the ornaments throughout the years Mom–love ’em!
