Christmas Traditions - Collecting Ornaments

This month, I'm sharing about favorite Christmas traditions. 

When our girls were little, we collected a new set of ornaments for our tree in a set of 3--
one for each daughter, and if possible, they matched the color of their birthstones. 
Some of our favorites are a set of cowboy boots, a set of china teapots, and a set of angels.

Of course, there are the ornaments that help you remember special moments, 
like Clara from the Nutcracker, to commemorate the year we went to see the Nutcracker Ballet.

We also collect snowmen and bells . . . 

And angels in all shapes and sizes.

One of my favorite's is this Jim Shore Angel. Isn't she lovely?
