Ornament Swap Linkup

Christmas is my favorite time of year.

People care EXTRA about one another.

Everything is festive and bright.

I love shopping for gifts to give to others.

Hot cocoa, family, friends, decor
and CHRISTMAS TREES!

And you know what goes on Christmas trees?!?!

ORNAMENTS!

I love Christmas tree ornaments
so when I saw Megan's ornament swap
I knew I HAD TO ENTER!!!
Photobucket

I was partnered with the lovely Amanda,
[HI NEW FRIEND]
and immediately went ornament hunting.

I tried to find ornaments that would
match her tree motif's
and be fun to look at.

I HOPE YOU LIKE THEM AMANDA!!!!

After I sent mine off,
all I could do was sit back and wait
for my fun package to arrive.
I was so stinkin' excited to see this baby outside my door!

She totally put my packaging to shame. I LOVE the wrapping paper!

But, I loved what was inside even more!

Love at these beautiful and festive ornaments!

How precious and awesome is Santa's beard?

Amanda was so generous, she sent a set of 4 ornaments.

They are all dazzlingly beautiful on my tree!

Thank you Megan for setting up the swap!

Thank you SO MUCH AMANDA! I hope you enjoyed your ornaments!

I LOVE MINE!

MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS FRIENDS!

I've see around the blogesphere people talking about a SILENT blogger day tomorrow
and I 100% disagree with the idea. 

Our blog pages SHOULDN'T be filled with a BLOG BUTTON tomorrow,
but with the names of those lost.

Too soon people are going to forget those 20 lives lost.

We should do everything WE CAN to keep their names at the fore front.

Tomorrow I WON'T BE SILENT!

Tomorrow I will be posting the victims names on my blog.

I may be ruffling feathers, but I'm doing
what I think is right.

I hope you're wearing green today!

Love your ornaments, especially that Santa. So cute!

And I actually had not heard about the silence thing. I wasn't able to post much today (to avoid breaking down) but there's no way I could keep silent.

The ornament is so cute!!!!! Part of me feels this whole day of silence was started for other reasons than remembering the CT victims.

Super cute!! I didn't want to participate in the day of silence either. I don't think that we should give ourselves to the negativity. We need remembrance and strength.
