Favorite Christmas Ornaments, and a Bloggy Break

Last year I shared pictures and the stories of two favorite Christmas ornaments.  This year I intended to post a photo of our tree, but I haven't yet gotten a decent picture of it!  In the meantime, here are a few more of my favorite ornaments:

New Home ornament

We got this ornament for the first Christmas we were in this house.

cross stitched ornament

My crafty and artistic sister made this! I've never had the patience for needlework, so I am very impressed by her handiwork.

My picture doesn't do justice to this tiny glass Christmas tree. It's only about 1-1/2 inches high, and it reflects light at all angles.  We found this during a day trip to Wheaton Village, and I think it's one of the prettiest ornaments on our tree!

I'm going to take some time off from blogging during the next week or two.  My husband is taking some time off from work, so we'll be busy visiting family, spending time together, and so on.

Have a wonderful Christmas, and I'll see you soon!
