Christmas night has left me sick. I’m not sure what it is or how I got it but I think I am just exhausted from all that last week required. So, I’m late. This is a Sesame Street ornament from my childhood that has made it to our tree. What’s not to love about Big … More 12 Ornaments – day 12 (late)
Christ is born. Now we wait for Santa to come. It’s crazy, I know. But at least this Santa has made a nice wardrobe change, crossing over to the blue side of things. Merry Christmas to you. And, if Santa cares about colleges, I suspect that he would be a Duke fan.
Before this day gets away, I offer you day 10 and a nativity scene from 10,000 Villages. It is a cute little thing and that’s about all there is to say I suppose. Our son has taken to calling his toy nativity set an ‘activity set’ which seems right. We are on the edge of … More 12 Ornaments – Day 10
For day nine I choose a copper ornament in the shape of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (With a tiny spot for the trolls who live under the bridge). I chose this for Saturday because as a kid growing up we often went home to the UP for Christmas. We’re I still a child, we … More 12 Ornaments – Day 9
Well, the world didn’t end last night so I have a little catching up to do. Today I give you the White House Christmas Ornament from 2009.

Gisele threw out the first pitch. Schilling started the game. The Sox won 12-2. It was awesome. … More 12 Ornaments – Day 7
It’s day six and its a Wednesday. In Baptist circles, Wednesday means church, so I give you…a Duke Divinity Ornament. Duke also played basketball tonight and won big, so this one is pulling double symbolic duty. Thanks for watching along with me. Merry Christmas.
I almost forgot to post today, but I didn’t, so, whew. Today I offer you a Vespa ornament. Well, it’s not officially an official Vespa ornament, but you know what I mean. It also has some cues that remind me of handmade stuff that they sell at 10000 Villages. So, cheers to handmade and to … More 12 Ornaments – Day 5
Well, it’s Monday. I suppose I should have offered you a cup of coffee early this morning, but it’s Monday…I’m behind. Today is a tribute to one of my loves, coffee. And, it’s for one of my indulgences, Dunkin Donuts with cream and sugar. Here’s to you my friends. May your Tuesday begin with a … More 12 Ornaments – Day 4
Here’s day two. It’s a gift we got from a loved one a while back and it is totally Texan. It’s heavy. It’s silver. It’s got the state outline and a flag. There’s a trinity of Texas symbolism in there somewhere. So, for a day as big as Saturday, I give you the Texas ornament.
