This year we went to Florida to spend time with Nic and Pierre. While we were there we went to Shell City and I picked up this ornament for our tree.
We also went to Portsmouth, VA to spend time with Chuck. While there we went to the Portsmouth Navel Shipyard Museum and picked up this ornament.
We have ornaments from all over the United States as well as from all of our dive locations.
We have ornaments that the kids made as youngsters
My sister Dawn made this for my first Christmas tree.
She was 9 or 10 years old.
We have vintage ornaments that belonged to my folks and that I put on the tree as a kid.
Frank was working one afternoon and while on patrol he drove through a school lot.
There was a young boy there named Jeremy of Boy Scout Troop #198 who was just coming out from his meeting.
Frank stopped to wish him a Merry Christmas and Jeremy introduced himself gave Frank this ornament that he had just made.
Frank gets tears in his eyes every year when he hangs this ornament
Tony knowing how important this ornament was to Frank made this one for him 10 yrs. later
And Finally here is our tree in all it's splendor
I am linking up with Nesting Place for the 2013 Christmas Tour of Homes.
