Greetings! Like many of you, our home
has now been decorated for the holiday season with the focal point being the
Christmas tree in our living room.
One of the things we collect on each trip—Disney or not—is an ornament for our tree—click here to read more about what we collect.
Each year, when we decorate our Christmas tree, we are reminded of the many adventures we have taken as a family.
So, it came as no surprise when our tree was full of Disney ornaments! Each one represents a special Disney memory. When we get home, I write the dates of our vacation somewhere on the ornament using a permanent marker.
Let me share some of them with you. . .
Ornaments from two different cruises are above. Our first Disney Cruise in 2007 and our most recent, July 2011--on the left. If you look closely, you can see the Aqua Duck on the ornament on the left.
Mickey shaped bells from our trip in November 2010 and a visit to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.
Ah, Castaway Cay! An ornament from our Disney Cruise December 2009.
A four parks, one world ornament from our November 2009 trip.
March 2009 was the origination of the above ornament.
The above ornament came home with us from our trip, March 2010.
This was our first ornament from our first trip, November 2006.
The ornament above is from our Mexican Riviera itinerary on the Disney Magic in July of 2008. It represents all the ports of call. Since DCL no longer makes a stop at Mazatlan, it is somewhat of a collector's item!
Our EPCOT ornament is a reminder of the time we were the Family of the Day at EPCOT. Click here to read more.
This ornament was from a trip to the World in September of 2008.

It is a pleasure to decorate for the holidays when it brings back so many memories of time spent together as a family.
From the Williams Family to your family, wishing you Happy Holidays and many happy adventures for the future!
