Each year I get a few new ornaments to add to our tree, but this year I got more than a few. A few ornaments didn’t make it last year unfortunately so the tree seemed exceptionally bare. I wanted to wait until I had gotten all of the ornaments I was going to get before doing this post.
It seems each year I say the same thing, that I want more Christmas decor. And although I do add to my collection each year, I wish it was more. Too bad I didn’t win the mega millions…

Every ornament I got was on sale or I had a coupon for with the exception of the ECU ornament. I got that from one of the local bookstores for Small Business Saturday, no sale , no coupon…just Pirates supporting Pirates.
The goal was to get ornaments that were fun, festive and not as breakable. I told the cashier at Pier 1 Imports the other day…yeah looks like I’ll have to wait about 10 more years and then I can truly have my adult tree. It’s just sad knowing some of my beloved ornaments from over the years are no longer here with me.
Isn’t he just precious?!? He would be even more so if he had a bell in him. He doesn’t, just a ball inside that I don’t understand the purpose of. I got him from Kohl’s. He has a little nick in his beard on the side and that’s why I got him. It gave him more character! Again, my iphone lets me down with it’s lack of clarity.
