Favorite Ornaments on Our Trees

Each of us show and tell about our favorite ornaments on our trees.

  •  
    Dave's #5: Charlie in the Box: This is from "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and the Island of Misfit Toys.
  •  
    Falen's #5: A friend bought me a few "sweet" ornaments. I also have an ice cream cone and popsicle!
  •  
    Steve's #5: Ornament for Olivia's first Christmas from Kristy's mom in 2009.
  •  
    Intern Katie's #5: It's not Christmas without the Charlie Brown movie and snoopy is my favorite part of it!
  •  
    Dave's #4: Baby's First Christmas: This was from Carson's first Christmas.
  •  
    Falen's #4: Paul got me this. I have many other Star Wars Ornaments, but this one is the coolest!
  •  
    Steve's #4: One of my first ornaments from 1st or 2nd grade. Cinderella was re-released so McDonald's had these in Happy Meals.
  •  
    Intern Katie's #4: I LOVE snowmen!! I have a ton of ornaments like this one, but he always makes me smile.
  •  
    Dave's #3: Leg Lamp: From our favorite Christmas movie, "A Christmas Story."
  •  
    Falen's #3: This is a little Pomeranian ornament in honor of my sweet pup, Elliott!
  •  
    Steve's #3: My first ornament as a baby, my mom knitted this for me and put it on the tree.
  •  
    Intern Katie's #3: My grandma was all about Elvis, so this one is at the top of the tree every year!
  •  
    Dave's #2 Allison in Popsicle Stick Frame: I just love how cute she is in little reindeer antlers. I don't think she made the frame, I think she bought it at one of those Girl Scout shops where an older girl helps you pick out home made presents.
  •  
    Falen's #2: My sister got me this ornament, and I love it!!
  •  
    Steve's #2: This ornament isn't special but the cloth hanger is, it from Kristy and my first apartment. For some reason Kristy thought using these would be way easier then the metal hooks so we spent a ton of time attaching the cloth and hanging ornaments turned into a giant pain in the a$$! This is one of the few ornaments we didn't throw away.

    Intern Katie's #2: My grandpa and I were really close and we use to stay up past 3am drinking coffee and eating donuts. I keep a coffee mug on my tree for him. <3
  •  
    Dave's #1: Old Fashioned Radio: This is my all-time favorite. I've had it for about 20 years. It talks when you push a button on the front it says, "We interrupt this program for a special announcement. Santa has been spotted overhead. Look for reindeer on your roof!" It reminds me of when I first moved to Minnesota and when Allison was very little.

    Falen's #1: I just got this ornament this year for my new family. I don't have many older ornaments with memories attached. My mom has all of those.
  •  
    Steve's #1: Was given this by Olivia on her very first Christmas. All together now "Awwwwwwww"
  •  
    Intern Katie's #1: This was my VERY FIRST ornament, I've always loved it. There's a hole in the bottom so you can put a light through it, plus, the bear is freakin cute :)
