One of the things I love about Christmas is the togetherness. Families come together to spend time with one another. Memories are made. Our tree is filled with memories of Christmas past. It reminds us of family members and vacations, schools and traditions. This year, we have a smaller tree than last year, so many of our ornaments would not fit on. Hans and I each, however, found the ornaments that were most important to us, and all of those are up there.
|Full of family memories...and Cody in the corner.|
|A Ukrainian spider web for good luck.|
|A light house that actually lights up from Hans' grandma.|
|Memories of our trip to Arizona over Christmas 2008.|
|An ornament filled with costume scraps from Cirque du Soleil. Hans and I love their performances and thought this ornament would be perfect. Hey! We should do this for TIV!|
|Memories of our college days and our wedding.|
