I cannot believe I have made it this far with the December pages. I bet everyone is sick of seeing them by now. I know I will be glad to have it completed. I would wait until next Xmas season, but that would be an easy recipe to not complete these.

Although we have too many ornaments to even put on a tree, my DD picked the ones she wanted, and even helped out with the photograhs as she took them off the tree after Christmas.

Journaling Reads: My ornament collection began in 1973 when my best friend Betsey gave me an ornament from her tree which I had always admired, a red cardinal which didn’t hang, but it perched itself on the end of a branch. She also bought me a Partridge and a Pair Tree Ornament. That year I also purchased a few Hallmark ornaments at Clark’s Stationery Store, in Amity Plaza. It was the first year of the Hallmark Ornaments.
