This is Little Drummer Boy. He is very special because he is almost as old as DH. Every year for the last thirty plus years, DH has been getting a handmade or specially chosen Christmas ornament from his grandma and aunt. This one was given to DH when he was one. It has DH's name and the year 1976 handwritten on the back. There are other ornaments dating back to from when he was born but somehow this one holds a special place in my heart. Maybe it's the blonde hair and blue outfit that reminds me of DH. We could not figure out which one he got the year he was born since some of the ornaments were not dated. These ornaments are so precious to me!
This second one is special to me because it was from our honeymoon in Tahiti. I call it "From Bora Bora, with Love". We stayed in some overwater bungalows in Bora Bora and this was the holder that held my sarong/wrap that was a welcome gift from the hotel. DH got a free t-shirt. The holder is made of straw or grass and has two shells on it. Technically it is not a Christmas ornament, but it sits on our tree. Every year, as we put up the Christmas tree, it reminds us of how special our marriage is, and the wonderful time we had on our honeymoon.
