My Dog Sam
Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
I really enjoy our Silver Bell collection, every year we polish them and hang them as a family. They are not my favorite, I will always love our little keepsake ornaments more, but this will always remind me of my parents and I setting up our family tree.
Christmas or bust!!!

I would say that my most cherished decoration would be my nativity scene. My grandmother passed away Christmas Eve the year I was 14 and she actually purchased the first part of the set for me that Christmas (it was the Joseph, Mary, and Jesus) and we opened all the gifts from her a few days after Christmas like we always did. My parents had an agreement with her that they would buy me the rest of the set. I cherish this set greatly, not only because it was from my grandmother, but because it was the year I lost her. It was a very hard Christmas that year.

Almost all my ornaments have a story behind them, so it's hard to choose just one as my favorite. There's a couple (very bedraggled by now) paper ornaments that my daughters made when they were little that go on the tree first. Now that my girls are in their 30s, it's nice to remember when they were in 1st and 2nd grade...

The one ornament I love the most, would have to be this really old Carousel my mom has. It's made out of mirror & I believe ceramic. There really was no special memories with it.. just that at Christmas time I always think about it, and remembered as a child I was intrigued by it as well.
Wishing You a Merry Christmas

The ornament I cherish the most is without a doubt a little pink hollowed out Christmas ball. Back in the 1970's when myself and my four other siblings were small, my father God rest his soul, had small boxes of these balls in assorted colors. My father had us decorate the tree with them, each of us had our own box. Well the only surviving ball is my cherished pink one which reminds me of my father and how much fun he made our Christmas each year until his untimely passing in 1981. No matter what color theme we use for our tree, somewhere standing out will be my pink hollowed out ball.

While I certainly treasure the ornaments each of my kids made in kindergarten...if I had to pick the most cherished; I'd have to go with the nativity ornaments that belonged to my grandmother and my hubby's grandmother. Each year when we put them on the tree, we take a moment to remember those we have loved and lost.

My favorite is an an old, glass German ornament. It's oblong, and has sort of waves in it. It belonged to my mother's dad, he died when I was 4 months old, so I don't remember him. My grandmother had died about 4 years prior to that. It was one of the few things my mom inherited from her parents, so it meant so much when she gave it to me when I moved into my first home.

Mine is a hollowed out ball with a snowman and a tree in it. I have no idea how old it is, but I know it has been in our my family since before I was born. Every year my brother and sister and myself always made sure it got hung on the front of the tree and up high so it could be seen. When I moved to Texas, and went and got all of my stuff, I saw that my mother packed it in with my stuff. So now it gets hung on my new family's tree. One year it got broken while packed away, I thought it was gone forever, but my wonderful wife and her dad was able to put it back together with some crazy glue, you can hardly tell it was broken. When I saw that she did that, I got some tears in my eyes, and hugged her and thanked her for being so wonderful. here is a picture of it, you can see where a small chip is missing on it, but other than that it is perfect.
