Since we’ve been together, we’ve racked up a decent amount of pretty awesome ornaments. I’ve made a few and bought plenty, but my favorites are usually gifted from my FMIL. In the past, they bought “ugly” ornaments for each other, the tackiest, funniest ornaments they could find. But as I’ve been in the picture, every year she send us both a new ornament that represents us. I usually get a fairy, FI usually gets something dark (last year he got a smiley skull face on top of a tombstone; it’s much cuter than it sounds!). But THIS year, she’s outdone herself. For the Christmas before out ceremony, she got us these:
We opened these on Yule (Dec 21st this year). FI opened his first and showed me what he got as I was just starting to open mine. When I saw that he got Jack, I was tearing at the box much faster after gasping and saying “Please be Sally, please be Sally, YES!!! SHE GOT ME SALLY!!!” I love that lady, I got so lucky to have her in my future family. 🙂
And of course we arranged them so they are next to each other, holding hands. I think we found a new tradition!
What’s your favorite? From this year or any other!
