Animal Ornaments


I had several people mention Ronnie's ornaments so I thought you might like to see the one I bought for him this year. There isn't really any rhyme or reason to what ornament I buy for him ~ but as I look through his (all 33) I've noticed that, by far, they're toy-like. There are airplanes (I counted six of those), trucks, bears, clowns and even a jack in the box. There's two burros ~ a few Santas ~ and several snowmen ~ but most of all toys! This year I found this cute little teddy bear pull TOY at HomeGoods. It even has a letter "S" on it...for son.



Today I had to stop at the Mall and pick up my photos for my Christmas cards. I had to walk through Macy's to get to the camera store. So I stopped to take a peek at the Christmas decorations ('cause I love Christmas stuff!) and I found a wonderful ornament for ME! The photo doesn't quite do it justice ~ but it's a beautiful, sparkly, white squirrel! Love it!

That's definitely the right pick for you. I'm still on the lookout for ornaments for Mark and I.

Hahahahaha for the squirrel ornament!! I should take a picture of David's "collection" of squirrel ornaments I have given him over the years. I give ornaments to my kids every year, too. They love that tradition as much as I do. HomeGoods! One of my favorite stores. We don't have one here in Pittsburgh but I go to the one near my sister in New Jersey at Thanksgiving and stock up!
