R.I.P. Christmas Ornaments 2009

Did you lose any ornaments to cats, tree-falling-over-disasters, little kids or some other tragedy?

Sorry for your loss! That sounds one fun ornament! Santa and the Aliens, sort of an "Xmas File"!

I lost one of my treasured baubles this Christmas past. When I went to put the tree up last year it was there in its box, broken into pieces. It was one my grandmother had given us as kids and it meant a lot. The sad thing is I think it must have got broken when we put the tree away in Jan 2009 so it had been lying there in pieces all through the year and we didn't know!

We always seem to manage to lose at least one ornament during the season, I aim to correct that this year!

Actually through my own fault I broke one of my porcelain snow men from 2009 which I had just bought. I had a series of them from Hallmark and this was the newest one. I had them sitting in front of some Santas on the mantle and by accident knocked the newest one off on the floor. He shatted into a million pieces. Since the season is over, I will probably not be able to find him again.

A couple... one nutcracker was mysteriously dismantled... hmmm.. could it be the almost 2 year old in our house? Another nutcracker has a sad broken foot now (same toddler! lol), Big Bird lost an arm and a poor kitty lost it's head... I can fix that one, though!

I'm so sorry about your loss, judypancoast...!

Yes, we certainly did. In fact, there were several less ornaments to put away this year. Thankfully, all can be easily replaced.

Our new kittie, Sprite, (b/w tuxedo guy) glued himself to our tree.

When he wasn't busily chasing ornaments around the house, he was cutely sleeping under it and also drinking all the water...! We're hoping his second Christmas with us will be a bit more toned down. (Yet still FUN...!)

No broken ornaments this year... on either tree!

At home, no ornaments slid off the tree to be broken on our hardwood floor. This is a complete surprise as I broke three last year. Thankfully, they were only generic bulbs rather than the ones that my mom cherishes.

At the apartment, our first tree went up and down without a hitch. No broken bulbs or light issues on the pre-lit tree. Perfect, really!

I lost one. It fell off the tree somehow.

I also got rid of a lot of ornaments that haven't been placed on the tree in years.
