Most Treasured Ornaments (Part 2)

Happy Monday Everyone.

It's raining today....Yay!
Second best thing to snowing...well, for me anyway!

And on this beautiful rainy day I wanted to share with you our next 4 ornaments. I do hope you're enjoying them as much as I am, sharing them with you.

Almost to the day of our 1st Wedding Anniversary we discovered we were having a baby!...Another "most happiest day of my life."♥♥♥

We had a big scare before we began trying to get pregnant....We were so afraid we wouldn't be able to have a baby but....She is our little miracle baby!

Here is a close up of the picture on the other side of the one with my hubby and me (big as can be.) It's our daughter's sonogram picture....Can you see her little face?


January 18, 1995 our beautiful baby girl is born. We are as happy and can be.

(other side)

About a month after she was born, we christened her and had a little get together to celebrate. This was the little party favor I made for our guests. It says: "Keepsake of my Baptism" in Spanish.


This was our daughter's very first trip to the "Happiest Place on Earth"...Disneyland. She loved "It's a Small World" ride the best.

I punched out circle and star shaped confetti and placed it in the sphere so when shaken it would float around.

(other side)

This is a "Disney Dollar" we saved from her first trip. For those of you who don't know what that's a form of corporate scrip or token sold by Walt Disney and accepted at the company's theme parks. It's sold for the face value of the bill and it's mostly for collecting, but may be use to buy stuff in the parks.


And for the last ornament for today.... It's the ornament that commemorated our daughter's first big, themed, birthday bash. For her first birthday we thought she was too young to really know what was happening, so we kept it small and simple. But when she turned 2 we went all out. The theme was "The Hunchback of Notre Dame." This was her first favorite movie.

I don't know if you can tell...but Daddy dressed up as a jester to go along with the theme.

(the other side)

This was the party favor that I made for our guests. They were buttons of the different characters from the movie...our daughter's favorite was Esmeralda.

So there you have it, 4 more of our Most Treasured Ornaments. I am so happy you stopped by today. Remember there are a few more to come. Please come back and check them out.

Have a wonderful Monday and an awesome new week.

Blessings to all!

Hugs and Kisses,

Hi Ana,
I am so glad that you would share these darling ornaments for all of us to enjoy. Boy, I wish I would have thought to do this when mine were small. Last year I did start making ornaments for each of the children with their photos tucked inside. I hope to finish them this year and give them to each one.
