  • Everyone except for the dog has there own ornament. My husband I share one, so we really don't have our own.

  • Yes. I do. When my dad died, there was a white dove tucked into the casket spray. I saved it and It is the first ornament I place on my tree every year. Daddy has been gone 26 years.

  • I have an angel that I hang in my home during the holidays in memory of my brother who passed away in 1996. The angel is wearing a dress the color of his birthstone, the garnet. I also have another ornament in memory of my brother that we put on the Christmas tree every year. I just miss him so much.

  • Yes, we have 6 of them. My great-grandmother made them (They're styrofoam balls covered in silk, with jewel beads, ribbon, & sequins pinned onto them) They're so beautiful! The ornaments used to be all my great-grandparents used on their tree- there were lots. When she dies, the ornaments were divided up among great-grandmother's kids, down each generation. My sister & I now each have six.

  • The photographer from our wedding gave us a "first christmas" ornament, some lovebirds or something on it. Kinda cute but im not sure I would call it special. I mean neither of us know her, really.
