Christmas Ornaments Favorites

Popping in to share a few of my Christmas tree ornament favorites from our tree this year. . .

Luke’s 2014 ornament.


Caribou Coffee cup.


Our very 1st vacation ornament from New Orleans 2008. Since then, we have bought an ornament from every family vacation. I love that we started that tradition. It was by accident too – we hadn’t even thought of it, until we were wandering around a shopping area in NOLA and found this ornament and came up with the idea. It is so fun to take a trip down memory lane with our vacation memories while decorating the tree.


Another vacation ornament from our road trip to Jackson Hole, WY.


And from our trip this year to Maui.


And from our 1st married Christmas together.


And one of my favorites from my Mom. Every year growing up, we would get a new ornament from my Mom. The th0ught was then when we had our own house, we would have a collection of ornaments to start our own tree. And I love it.


Do you have a favorite ornament?

And btw I cannot believe Christmas is 2 days away and that Christmas Eve is TOMORROW!!

Linking up with Becky for TYT. Thanks for hosting!!

  1. I actually don’t have a favorite ornament. I do love the idea of collecting one @ every vacation. I think I’ll be stealing this idea from you :-X

  4. My mom does/did the same tradition with us! our yearly ornament usually reflected whatever we were into that year, so our tree has some pretty weird ornaments on it (including a teletubby, a cell phone, charmander the pokemon, and french fries)

  5. I got a Spark canister ornament this year and I love it 😉 Haha! Growing up my favorite ornament was a cinnamon bear I made in preschool. It still smells good every time I put it on the tree.
