I know I’m not the only one. If you’re a parent you probably get your kids Christmas ornaments. Since the day my kids had their first Christmas, they've gotten a Hallmark ornament. It started off with all of the baby ones. Four kids later and we had lots of numbered ornaments.
As they grew out of the numbered ornaments we moved on to whatever they were interested in at the time. My first daughter moved into Barbie ornaments. I don’t remember how many of those she had. I REALLY wanted to stay with themes, but for my second daughter, the year we were starting a new series for her, they didn't really have anything new to start on. I was so bummed. I can’t even remember what we moved on to for her.
As my boys grew older, I ditched the idea of going with a theme and decided that whatever they were interested in that year was what I tried to find an ornament to associate with. I think one year my oldest got a cell phone ornament. Another time it was something to do with baking. It’s always an event when I go in and purchase the ornaments for my kids. I never know what I’m going to walk away with.
The ONE person who’s easy to shop for with ornaments is my oldest son. He loves ALL things Star Wars. Thank you Buddy for making ornament choosing for one of my four kids easy! lol The one hard part is choosing which one I think he’d like best every year. Seriously, I think he’d be happy with all of them every year. You watch, when he grows up, he’s going to have a room that has one wall Star Wars, one wall Green Bay Packers, one wall DC Comics, and one wall Marvel. That or he’ll have rooms dedicated to each of them.
I know this year I want to continue getting ornaments for Fred and I. I’ve already found our ornament in the Dreambook. I think that’s my favorite catalog to go through for the holidays! Oh, and when Fred reads this post, he’s going to see the ornament I think K-girl would love and he’s going to want to go out immediately and buy it!
