Merry Eve of the Eve of Christmas Eve...

While visiting Terri's blog she posted this MeMe; It's the Ornament Tag - so tag, you're it!!
Here are the rules:

1. Take a picture of your favorite ornament and put it on your blog telling everyone about it.

2. Post a link to the person on whose blog you found out about the Ornament Tag.

3. Post the rules.

This was such a hard decision, I have SO many favorites on my tree. As I'm sure you already know from reading my blog...I collect an ornament (or two) a year, something that will remind me of "That" Christmas. So, to choose between the ones representing the birth of my children, the ones the kids made in school, a vacation, my favorite sports team or my Scottish heritage was VERY hard!
What does this one represent to me?
This ornament was the first ornament Hubby and I chose for our first Christmas dating. I know exactly where we were, what we were feeling and the future we both saw together. After all it was "Love at first sight" for us! Each year I unpack it all those memories rush back as though I was in a time warp. I'm sappy!

I'd love to see your ornaments...please comment to let me know if you are going to play along!

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!!

What a beautiful ornament and what a lovely sentiment behind it. :)

I won't be playing along. I'm afraid that I don't put up a tree so I don't *have* ornaments. I do like seeing what other people do though!

What a great post! I need to feed Mugsy, wrap a few gifts and get ready for dinner with the inlaws - including the out of town brother inlaw and his woman - but I wanna play! I'm not sure it will be my FAVORITE ornament, but I'll pick my favorite from the firefighter's tree we put up this year.

No not sappy.... beautifully sentamental I'd say. This is a lovely ornament and all the more lovely for the love that it represents. :o)

Awwwwww! Very Sweet!
I'll have to play next year as I didn't even get the vintage ornaments down from the attic. My Mom gave me most of the ornaments we used when I was a child, and some of them were old then! But, we're having an undersupply of holiday spirit this year, due to an oversupply of year end client work!
