Every year, we add new ornaments to our collection. Although I have deviated from tradition in the last few years, I usually select one new ornament for each person based on highlights in that person’s year. The idea is that when each son takes a bride, I’ll wrap up his collection of ornaments and hand them off. I suppose that is when the baby book will leave my home as well.
Anyway, this year’s ornaments looked something like this:
The ornament which I selected for myself, is a lot like an ornament that was sent to me when I was a wee child. I think it was from my God Mother (who I have no recollection of ever seeing in real life.)
YaYa’s ornament commemorates his vacation in France with his Auntie Boogie Jill, Uncle Butthead Joe, and his way-cool cousins.
DD’s needs no explanation.
BoBo’s ornament of the world is because of his impending entry into the USAF. Although I’d prefer to know he out of harms way, he dreams of seeing more of the world.
