Ornament Gifts

This lovely tag was made by Daniella Hayes and I won it during her "Tag A Day" Party a few weeks ago!  Daniella is quite an artist and each day she featured one of her tags and a coordinating ornament. Here's the ornament I received -- just adorable!
 Also included with my gifts was this gorgeous card she made! Just love the colors and the details on it!
While I was hanging her gifts on our tree, I couldn't help but smile at one of my favorite ornaments . . .
This was a gift from my twin daughters last Christmas. They are SO funny! All of the girls in their sorority were fussing and primping and trying to look just "so" for these pictures.  My girls, thought it would be fun to make those "fake", "over-worked" smiles that all kids make when you tell them "SMILE"!  I laugh every time I look at it! I think they nailed "the look", don't you??
And on either side of this ornament, I hung ornaments they each made in preschool when they were four years old.
This is Sarah (who is on the left in the big ornament)
This is Megan (who is on the right in the big ornament)
Guess no one told them to "smile" for these!
How about your tree? Do you have any favorite ornaments featuring your children or ornaments they've made through the years? Be sure to stop by Layers of Creativity and see what beautiful artwork Daniella has whipped up!
