This is one of the 1st ones I received during Christmas 2000, we were in Oregon City and I so enjoyed the city lights and especially Peacock Lane in Portland so this ornament represents the magic of Christmas in the city.
This great fella is made with a leaf dipped in gold with a howling coyote stamped on it, I would say probably Christmas 2001. When we are in the desert in Central Oregon Glenn has shown me the great appreciation one should have for these creatures and the songs they sing in the night that still scare me, but I still admire them.
This pelican represents the pelican I used to love to watch by Malheur Lake when we would visit the "duck club" Glenn's brother used to have. Christmas 2002
This silver bell is a partridge in a pear tree, whats better then the Christmas song SILVER BELLS. Christmas 2004
This little deer is for the deer I battle in the spring and summer in my yard and also the same deer that I feed in the winter because I feel sorry for them:) My co-workers are starting to call me the deer whisperer, Glenn just smiles at me when I am mad at them for eating my flowers or when I am worried that they aren't going to make it through the cold nights in the winter. We truly have a love / hate relationship that's for sure. Christmas 2005
Now this guy is very special to me, Mickey Mouse anybody that knows me understands my feelings for this guy with red pants on and big feet. Glenn is very good about watching out for something I don't have of him. Christmas 2008
Christmas 2006 and 2007 I am not able to find on the tree one is a bunch of Cherries and the other is a mystery to me. This helps me to understand just how important these are to me and I will be packing them up differently this year and years to come. I also will find a safe place here in the house for them instead of the garage where the cold to hot temps. are effecting their paint and stuff.
Now to tell you about this guy, it is my oldest ornament I have I am thinking about 1965. Every year we had 3 Elf's 2 red and 1 green they would sit in the tree watching us. Now they sit in our tree and I know for sure they are still watching us.

We picked up a fire pit on clearance at Costco for the outdoor living room. I just love it.
The deer are back, so I watched them for awhile, they ate on the left over sunflowers and the dried up wild flowers. I am OK with them in my yard during the winter but come spring they have to go. I know this confuses them, but that is just the way it is.
Glenn and Monica decided to try some boxing on the wii. That was interesting to watch and listen to!
Our tree is in its stand and the lights are on now I just need to decorate the rest of it and the house. No worries I have all week to complete it, right.?.
Boy this is one busy week! I am going to have to remember to sit down and enjoy the warmth of the wood stove and relax thats for sure. Happy Holidays.
