Ding Dong, Ding Dong, Christmas Bells are ringing

Last weekend we went tree hunting, going out to the trees by horse and carriage.

Bing-Bing had fun hunting and helping us bag a tree.

We made a day of it, eating lunch there and paying a brief visit to Santa.  No lap-sitting, thank you very much.

Then home to decorate!


Next, single ornaments.  My brother does some beautiful woodwork and many years we get a new handmade ornament from him.  Here are two.

When Hubs and I got married we started a tradition of getting a tree ornament whenever we go on vacation.  That way we have something to remember each trip.

First our honeymoon, a cruise in the Caribbean with 3 days first on St. Maarten.

Here are some from our China trip.  We were there over Thanksgiving, so there were lots of ornaments available.

Ocean City, NJ – what seems to be becoming a family tradition

A golden snitch from our visit to Hogwarts.  Ummm, okay, we’re getting into the non-vacation ornaments now.  That one just flew in one day.
