Christmas Tree Ornaments

Aside from garland and balls, some of our Christmas tree ornaments are old and sentimental. The two sailor theme below are the simple gifts I gave to my husband two years ago when he was still in active duty.
 Hubby got the one below when he was ten years old.  
 Below is the Family  snowmen that my sister-in-law Chris gave us a couple  years ago when we had our first Christmas tree.
 I started buying  two ornaments for each of our  burritos every year and wrote the year at the back or front so they'll remember.
 Below is the first one that EJ got on his first Christmas  with us.
 Over time, the kids had collected  Christmas stuffed toys from friends and family.  Some of them are  musical and some aren't.  
 Since the kids helped me in decorating, they insisted to  put them on display too.
 The Santa is a plastic one with light bulb inside, Dad gave this to EJ.  My husband said that  it was his santa since he was a kid.  The gift boxes were made by my sister in law, she gave it to me during my first Christmas here in the States with pretty  Christmas tree ornaments in it.
 Below are some ornaments that my daughter made in school.  The head of the Rudolph is made of light bulb that they painted.
Thanks for checking out my   post folks and for leaving your comments.

  13. Mommy Rose now I understand why it has sentimental values, ganda naman talaga ang mga ornament ay ganyan. When they grow old and got married they can bring it and put it in their own Christmas tree, gush 70 or 80 na ata ako nyan hahahaha. Thanks sa bisita!

  14. Maingat kayo sa mga gamit ninyo especially yung mga Christmas tree decors ninyo. Pati mga anak mo ay maingat at masinop din sa mga toys na regalo sa kanila especially the stuffed toys. Lahat nang mga anak ko ay burara sa mga toys nila. Pag pinagsawaan na ay basta na lang itatapon sa closet at hindi na paglalaruan ulit. Pati yung mga gamit ko ay pinakikialaman nila at hindi ko na makita kapag gagamitin ko na. Haay, buhay, hehehe, lol. Thanks for the colorful post. God bless you all always.

  15. So many personal christmas ornaments you have all with a special memory !
    Happy holidays and a Happy New Year !
