PInk Saturday ~ Favorite Decorations

Welcome to Pink Saturday! Once again, thank you to Beverly, who hosts this event each and every Saturday. You can find her HERE as well as a list of all of the other participants.



This week our task is to describe our favorite Holiday Decoration. Well, I must admit that I don't yet have my decorations up! Moreover, they are not even unpacked yet! It is actually on my "to do" list this weekend. Sooooo..... since I don't have pictures, I guess you'll just have to take my word for it.



My favorite decorations have to be the beautiful tree ornaments that my 18 y.o. triplets made for me as they were growing up. They were reindeer made from Popsicle sticks, adorable cut-outs with their picture attached, and oh so many more. I have kept each and every one! While they may not make it on the tree each year, they are preserved and each year as I decorate I lovingly admire them once more! I will truly cherish them forever.



As least I can leave you with a picture of my "babies." This was taken at their Prom last May.






Have a great weekend!
OXOX,
Jacalyn

Happy Pink Saturday sweetie...
I love your post. Having triplets. Oh my gosh. You have had your patience tested a time or two. Their prom picture is just precious. Did they all go off to college?

I still have all three of my grown kids ornaments they made me since they were in kindergarten. My oldest is 33, then 31, and the youngest 29. I also have 7 grandkids with another one coming in June. They are such a wonderful blessing.

Thanks for sharing today sweetie. Happy Pink Saturday. Country hugs...Sherry

Happy Pink Saturday Jacklin, Beautiful family. Thanks for sharing the Reindeer Ornies. I remember them but my kids must not have used enough glue because they haven't withstood the test of time. Hugs, Mollye

Happy Pink Saturday!

Your kids look so grownup and happy! I still cherish an ornament my now 22 year old son made in preschool - a juice-can lid with glitter glued on it!! It embarrasses him, but I like it still.

Today's a good day to decorate and have a lovely Christmas home - have fun!

Jacalyn, I know the feeling. I don't have the first thing up either, so don't feel bad! ;-)

I loved seeing your precious children. They are the real ornaments of life.

Happy Pink Saturday!

XO,

Sheila :-)

Love your description of the Favorite decorations. I too have kept these and treasured them. Each has a special memory and to think that's times three.

Happy Saturday. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Triplets!!! I had a hard time coping to motherhood with one!!! I'm a great mom now, but if God would have started me off with three, I'd be on lots of Prozac. They're beautiful!! It's nice to learn a bit about each other besides the online boutique, which I love! I'm having a give away and was hoping you could take a moment to participate to help promote it. It would mean a lot to me! My daughter is coming home from college today & I'm thrilled! :)
