First Married Christmas

The other weekend Mr. Gazelle and I put our Christmas tree up.  This wasn't the first time that we've hung ornaments on the Christmas tree together, but somehow it felt different this time now that we are married.  We've collected a few ornaments over the year that will remind us of some special things and occasions.

Mr. Gazelle has a dream to own a boat some day.  So I bought him one!  Perhaps a bit on the small scale though...

We love to hike in the mountains...
...and apparently so does Santa.

This Empire State Building ornament will always remind me of our honeymoon.


And finally, I chose to make an ornament with all kinds of bits and pieces from our wedding.  I bought a plan glass ornament from Michaels.  I filled it with strips of our invitations, the purple and white twine we used on our invites, programs and favours...

...pieces of our thank you cards, our engagement picture moo cards...

...a piece of fabric from the bridesmaid dresses and some French veiling from my hair flower.

Our tree.

How are you remembering your wedding during the holiday season?

Our tree is a big pile of memories too. We always buy ornaments on all of our trips and occasions. I like the clear glass ball idea, very neat.
