Because I travel to MI every Christmas, I don't put up a Christmas Tree. I really don't like fake trees and having a real one would require me to take it down before I leave for the trip. Because of this, I started putting my ornaments on the cabinets in the kitchen. And becuase they are so much fun, I'm just leaving them there all year round. Incidentally, the ornament on the left was given to me by a youth group girl. If you notice the date, there is proof that I have owned something for over 5 years without losing it. The one on the right was one that I painted this year.
