2011 Ornament Reveal

It is that time of year again to pull the big box out of the garage and get to work. However, I think that this work may be the most fun work on the planet. We love putting up our Christmas tree!

The girls just love going through their boxes, reminiscing over old ornaments and hanging them on the tree.

So on to our Ornament Picks for 2011!!!!!!!!!

Ohh...Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?
Absorbent and yellow and porous is he
If nautical nonsense be something you wish
Then flop on the deck and plop like a fish...... "Spongebob Squarepants"

My little 3 year old man had to have him for his ornament. I tried many times to talk him out of it...but to no avail!

So on our tree hangs a yellow sponge with his tongue sticking out at me every day....I think Bob mocks me.

To add to her growing collection of horses my 8 year old picked this pretty white filly.

I think we scoured all of Bronners to find this frozen treat for my 11 year old. I'm not kidding...I think we looked at every bulb before she picked this one.

This ornament belongs to my husband. We purchased it in the Bahamas where the girls and John went swimming with the dolphins. What a great memory.

My ornament choice was this under the sea themed bulb. It is to remember the great sabbatical we had and all the time we spent in the ocean.

And here is the result of all of our efforts. They were really helpful....well maybe not the short one; but we will give him a break. The Christmas season is full swing in our home now!!!

Oooooo their faces help me...
