I love snowflakes on my Christmas tree, I have many of them, in many colors and materials.
I don't know why, but I also have a lot of Santas.
I have this picture from 2006, when we spent our first Christmas without my Mom, she was in Mexico with my grandma. I had to make Christmas dinner that year, it was scary, but turned out ok.
There is also a few hand painted ornaments from my son's years in Pre-K.
I have a set of baby booties from Mexico. My mom brought them for my son when he was 2 weeks old. He wore them one day, threw up on them, and didn't fit in them the following week. The booties are vomit-free, I promise. This booties were not made to be an ornament, but I just loved them so much, and thought they would look amazing hanging on the tree. This is the only thing I have from when he was a baby, his father kept all his clothes and toys.
I joke that I have a bit of Rehoboth DE in my tree, because I made an ornament from sand and shells from their beach.
I am supposed to make one from Sand from Florida, but Roger threw out the sand I brought with me from our last trip.
In the picture below are a few of my favorites, Penn State Ornament, Boyd's Bear (my sons' Grandma gave it to me), and our Starbucks ornament.

And Last, an ornament dedicated to my doggy, Cordelia. She now lives with her grandparents, but I still put her ornament on my tree.
