Trimming the Tree Time!

Each year, I love to add new ornaments to my collection on our tree. Each ornament, some hand-crafted from my daughter as a child, some passed down from my youth, some representing a special moment in our lives, and then there are my pet-themed ornaments. This year, I ordered custom designed porcelain ornaments of each of our Sibes, as well as our kitties Smokie and Binx. The awesome creations were done by fellow blogger, The Magic Sleigh.  

I also added a cute little penguin family (last year it was a polar bear family) to our tree this year representing each member of 
our Husky family. What type of ornaments do you put on your tree? Do you have favorite ones? Ones that hold special meaning? I'd love to hear about them!

Here is a little slideshow of some of our pet-themed ornaments. Hope you enjoy it! And Happy Tree Trimming to you and yours!

    Great slideshow too. The memories the ornaments represent are what make them so special.

  6. Wow, what great ornaments! I love the sibe sleigh. We don't have a lot of extra-special deocorations, but Mom does have a few pottery Santas that were made in her home town. They mean a lot to her and remind her of home. My favorite is when the barking dogs do jingle bells! Not an ornament, but I sure love it! BOL
