My Christmas Ornaments

Jen at Unglazed did a fun post on her 8 Christmas ornaments and challenged us to show the following ornaments: 1. Favorite, 2. The Oldest, 3. The Funniest, 4. Most Memorable, 5. The Ugliest, 6. The Reddest, 7. The Greenest, 8. The Tree Topper. I didn't get all the categories (I forgot to take more ornament photos while I was at the log cabin) and I also put a few spins on my categories - but here they are. Let's see your ornaments too!

This is memorable because it reminds me of our builder who built our log cabin! He really looks like this guy! Except he's thinner (sorry Randy - I was not implying you were jolly!)

This is the reddest ornament on my tree!

This is Marvin the cat's favorite ornament. Marvin has taken this moose off the tree at least 5 times to lick him to death.

This is one of my favorite ornaments. Reminds me of our family's love of the great outdoors.

This is the funniest ornament I could find. (By the way, my husband says this is not funny and he takes this ornament seriously. Ha,ha!)

This ornament reminds me of Jen at Unglazed! She did a wonderful post on the reminder of Joy and her blog also reflects Joy! Go visit her!

They're great, Shelley!!! Glad you enjoyed my list also. I love that plaque---but mine would say: There's nothin' better in life than EATIN' and SLEEPIN'.... ha ha

They are adorable!

Catherine Holman said...

Shelley, Your blog looks amazing! Love all the changes. I'm decorating our lodge room either tonight or tomorrow. It's my favorite to decorate and is as close to a log cabin as we'll probably get.

George said...

I like all of your ornaments -- I just hope Marvin isn't too hard on his favorite. You must have a beautiful tree.

Linda said...

What a neat post! Thanks for inviting me over. I am off to look around!

Brandi said...

Jen said...

This is great! Thanks for sharing your sweet, funny and sentimental thoughts all rolled into this post.
You're the best! ox

Glad you are okay after your five hour ordeal!
That moose is so cute, no wonder your cat likes it so much!

Dawnie said...

those are cute! I like this idea..I might have to do this, this week. baldyman and I went thru our ornamens last night and hung up all the ones the kids made or had when they were little. I didnt h ang them on the tree this year-instead we hung them from the garland between the dining and living rooms. turned out pretty neat!

You did Jen's idea justice, lovely post.

Alex and Alicia said...

What a fantastic post! I can see why Marvin is incredibly fond of the Moose that adorns your tree - he is simply adorable.

Thanks for taking us on a tour of your Christmas tree and all of your lovely ornaments.

Any word on the garland and lights yet? I'm dying to know if it's a no or a go! :)
