When we first moved to Baltimore, we took a walk through Hampden and found a shop full of crab shells painted like different characters. We picked up a crab shell Yoda:
I got this one in 2005, the first Christmas we had Marley:
Here's one of many Rutgers ornaments on our tree:
I participated in an ornament exchanged hosted by Justine over at Almost There and received these two ornaments from Katie over at Loves of Life:
Each of the ornaments on our tree is special - they were either given to us, or or from our childhood, or purchased because they ment something to us (like the oriole bird I bought for our first Christmas in Baltimore)... I love that even though our tree is just a little bare, it's full of meaning and memories. I try to pick up ornaments every time we travel (I have a little cowboy boot from a trip to Austin and a heavy ball with sombreros from our honeymoon in Mexico) or when I see one that reminds me of something we've done.
