Made by our son John in church when he was small

Given to us after 9-11, 2001

From the Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular, featuring the Rockettes

From a trip to Belize

The year we went to the U.S. Open golf tournament at Pebble Beach

The ornament from a Christmas trip to Walt Disney World when our kids were young

The keepsake from Larry's mom and dad's 50th anniversary at Christmas in 1990

“Baby's First Christmas” when our daughter Amy's first baby was born - Grace

To remember a trip to San Francisco

A reminder of our trip to the White House when our friend Bill Clinton was president

The famous Las Vegas sign makes a great ornament

The first year that we had our trike - 2011

A hand-made and painted wooden wreath that my brother John made us

Another of the many ornaments that my brother made us - a small wooden sled

Our children gave us this framed ornament of our grandchilren after a Thanksgiving trip to Cozumel with the whole family - the year we retired in 2009!

And this gift from a friend is a reminder of what holds our entire family together - the gift of the Christ Child.
