Every year I look so forward to opening our ornament box. It is like opening a box of treasured memories. Each year a few more are added to the collection and this year was no exception. The Ale 8 bottle ornament was given to me by my mother in law. Ale 8 is a soft drink that is made in my husband's hometown. The "He hunts therefore I shop" ornament was given to me by my sister in law. She knows me so well! It should say, "He hunts therefore we shop!". The glass New York will be a reminder of the wonderful trip we had to NYC this fall. Hannah received several new ones as well. Lucy's chocolate factory will help us remember what a terrific Lucy she was at Halloween and I glittered the "H" to adorn one of her birthday gifts. The monogrammed ball is a sample of the ornament that we attached to all of her birthday invitations. I am sad that it is time to close up the box yet again. I wonder what momentos will be added to the collection next year.
