Christmas Ornaments 5-10

5. This is the ornament I had to drag out of my bingo stuff. It is one of my most treasured things. I bought this ornament when Hayley was probably 2 months old. It was the first ornament that went on our tree that year. You can't tell by the picture but on the white ribbon it says "2002 Baby's First Christmas" Isn't it cute???

6. This is Hayley's other First Christmas ornament. This is part of a set, of which I am hoping to get all up tonite. I bought this one in 2006 after I had already purchased the rest of the train. I had to search the internet forever just to find it and then I paid a crazy amount of money to obtain it.

7. This is car 2 in Hayley's train. I'm not sure if I will ever be able to let her take these when she is old enough to move out. I treasure them so much.

8. Not a very clear picture. Car 3

9. Car 4...Maybe it would have been easier to just use a picture of the whole train together....

10. Woohoo! I am now up to date! This is the final car in Hayley's awesome train.  Not very clear I know!

TaDa! The whole train. Taken the day I got the first one in the mail. Isn't it amazing? I just love them, and I can't wait to do the same thing for my future children.
So, now I am covered until Friday....woohoo....Until then....

Wednesday, December 9, 2009


Okay, so I have not blogged for many many days. The reason? I was soooo sick that I didn't do much of anything. Hopefully tomorrow I will get my ornaments up to date. And the good news is tomorrow I am getting a car FINALLY!!!
So until later,

Christmas Ornament 4

Okay, so apparently my camera is not willing to take the best pictures. I am sure that is because of the fact that Hayley broke the screen so I have no clue exactly what I am taking a picture of. But anyways, this is Hayley's ornament. My mom bought it at Cracker Barrel when Hayley was just a baby. It took me many years to finally get a picture in it but that is Hayley's hospital picture.  Yes, she is kind of sticking her tongue out. I love this ornament because it reminds me just how little Hayley was her first Christmas, and it also says Baby's First Christmas on it. Which makes it her 3rd one. Tomorrow I am hoping to get her very first one up. But in order to do that I have to dig out my Bingo bag because I use that particular ornament as a good luck charm when I go and play bingo. 


Okay, so I stole this from who I believe said she stole it from someone else, who had also stolen it from someone else....LOL But it looks like fun so I am gonna give it a shot!

100 & Christmas Ornament 3

I so can not believe that this is my 100th post on this blog! I have never ever kept up with a blog this long. I've never felt that anyone would even be interested in my boring life. But then again I think 5 people read this thing. But hey it's better than none. =)

Anyways, I wanted to point that out before I continue with my post. Today(12/3) is day 3 of Christmas Ornaments. I know that the picture isn't the clearest, but I am hoping it is clear enough to see why I am choosing this one. My mom ordered this for Hayley when she ordered my replacement one. When we started decorating the tree Monday this was the 2nd ornament placed on the tree. It means so much to me that we are continueing this tradition even though we don't live with my mom. I can't wait until NEXT year when we start to decorate our tree there will be THREE instead of TWO.

Christmas Ornament 2

So here is my 2nd ornament. It's fitting that I choose it as my 2nd one to talk about since it is my 2nd one like this.  When I was younger my mom, my brother, and I went to Bronner's and each of us got one with our name on it. Every year that was the very first ornaments that were put on the tree. Then when Hayley was a year old we were living in our own place and had our own tree up. One nite after it had been completely decorated I decided that I wanted to remove all the ornaments and redecorate it since I wasn't happy with the way it looked. So, I took them all off and put them in Hayley's plastic shopping cart and put it on the table so I could reach them. Do you see were this story is going??
I turned my back for one second and the shopping cart rolled off the table and crashed on to the floor. And since my name ornament was on top it was the first thing to hit the floor....shattering into a thousand peices! I was devestated! I called my mom crying and she was able to order me a new one and have it delivered by Christmas. So this one I have taken very very good care of it, and am very protective of it. In fact, I love it so much that I just ordered Scott a green one. I am so excited to give it to him for Christmas.
So until tomorrows ornament,

A fun idea!

So I read a lot of blogs, and tonite when I logged on to read blogs I found this post. I think it looks like so much fun so I am gonna give it a try. I went and examined my tree and realized that I don't have that many interesting ornaments, but I do have alot of them that have a lot of memories. So I will use those.

I know this isn't an ornament really but it is the most important thing on my Christmas tree. While it is not the orginal it is identical to the one that my grandparents always had on their tree. This one I found at a barn sale about 2 weeks ago and had to buy it. You see, this is my 3rd one I have bought. Since you can't buy them new I have to look for them at garage sales and consignment shops, and well you take a chance when you buy at those places. Thankfully, this one works and I am happy to carry my grandparents tradition on.
