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 Future Mother-In-Law. 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, Fiance 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). Fiance 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!
