I absolutely love collecting ornaments, particularly from different places of travel.  It’s really cool to find old and antique ornaments at flea markets, garage sales, antique shops or even in grandma’s garage.  I even have newer collections from Target and Macy’s.  Going to Macy’s holiday lane is so much fun for me and gets me into the holiday spirit.  As a matter of fact, this was the first year I got my picture taken with Santa Claus at Macy’s.

Don’t forget that ornaments make fantastic gifts as well.  Some great Christmas decorations and ornaments to collect and give as presents are from designers, Annalee and Kurt S. Alder.  You can find good deals and stock at TJ-Maxx or Marshalls.

Scottish Mr. & Mrs. Claus. They have their special Christmas outfits for all countries.

Ah the holidays…another time during the year that we can torture our pets by dressing them up in costumes.  Kids aren’t the only ones that get to take their Christmas portraits in my family. (No pics with Santa on this blog)  Luckily I have two very photogenic animals to work with!  I couldnt resist but to take pictures of Rocky and Betty in their holiday gear.  Sometimes our pets  even end up being part of our Christmas tree decorations.  I snapped a few of the kids too!!! What the heck!  BTW- I do pet photography!

Betty, pretty in pink!

Our new Christmas Tree Decoration!

Ok..the kids’ turn
