Christmas Ornament Shopping

Thursday, December 22, 2011

Every year right before Christmas, the girls and I shop for new Christmas ornaments.  We went shopping today, and these are the ones we bought.


We were out in stormy weather (tornado watch in Central Alabama).

What are some of your fun family Christmas traditions?

Until next time...

Merry Christmas!

  1. Hi Ricki,
    You certainly got some beautiful ornaments! I love ornaments and have several. I hope the tornado stays away. Keep safe and Happy Holidays!

  2. Those are sweet. I love them. Stay safe and happy holidays!

  3. I love those gingy ones but they are all beautiful. Love this tradition. Stay safe in your weather. That is crazy. Is it late in the year for tornados?

  4. What lovely treasures, Merry Christmas!

  5. Cute ornaments! I like how different the birdhouse one is.

    Now following you from Favorite Things Thursday.

  6. Well, many of our traditions have been put on hold as we have kids living in 2 different states! My daughter asked in 2001 if we would get her a Christopher Radko ornament each year so that she could do an entire tree in them some day. We have done that and each year we try to find one that relates to something that has happened that year in her life.

    Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday!

  7. Wow shopping with your girls! What a way to do gifrl bonding :) Enjoy the holidays!

  8. Carissima Ricki,tanti auguri di Buon Natale a te e alla tua famiglia,Rosetta

  9. So sweet, love the little cottage one.thank you for sharing and for linking to Thursday Favorite Things blog Hop at Katherines Corner. Merry Christmas Hugs!

  10. That's a really sweet tradition. I have either purchased or made an ornament for our "Grands" each year since our twins were born twelve years ago. I always put their names & the date (& whom they are from). When they are ready to move off on their own (many, many years from now), they will have a nice assortment of ornaments for their own trees.

    In case I don't have the chance, I just want to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas, Ricki Jill! I have so enjoyed our friendship & look forward to more of the same.
    xoxo, CAS

  11. Very pretty, the birdhouse is especially cute.
