25 Days of Christmas Ornaments - Day 1

If this is your first time visiting BearCountry, welcome! I'm glad you stopped by! For the first 25 days of December I'm going to be hosting a fun and easy carnival about Christmas ornaments. Once a day I will post a MckLinky for everyone to share a photo of an ornament and the story behind it. Want to know more? I suggest you click here to read the official introduction to the carnival or leave your questions in the comment section. There are no right or wrong ornaments to share - homemade or store bought. If it's special to you, we want to hear about it!

I chose this angel ornament for the first day because it is one of my most precious ones. It was purchased in honor of a little boy I won't meet this side of Heaven, but has impacted my family none the less. Noah is celebrating his third Christmas as an angel in Heaven and I bet he and my dad are best buds by now.

Thanks to my friend Susan, who understands code way better than I do, there's even a handy dandy 'grab the code' box if you'd like to add the button to your blog.


One thing to note as your planning out which ornaments to feature on which days, I plan to feature homemade ornaments the second week in December. My kids make ornaments each year and I'm hoping that we'll be able to share some fun ornament projects with each other.


  1. Hi! I hope to get something posted today, but I have 2 kids and a husband (read: biggest baby of all) with colds, and one kid throwing up! UGH!

  2. That ornament is very pretty. I love how you have it staged pictures will all be against the carpet/wall because I'm SO creative like that :o)

  3. What a beautiful ornament! God bless - Holly

  4. I added a response on my page where you commented- but I wanted to write it here in case you don't come back... I couldnt get your button to work, it said something about the coding?

  5. Oh! I can't wait for some homemade ornament ideas! What a great tradition to make an ornament each year! I love it!

  6. What a beautiful angel ornament to remind you of a precious "little angel" in Heaven.

  7. What a neat idea, I can't wait to see your precious ornaments.
