McLinky Monday--My Favorite Ornament

Since we finally got someone who got yesterday's Name That Tune! I can finally post my regularly scheduled post for today. I'm the McLinkster today with the RHOK. Go over there to see more McLinkies. Today they want us to talk about our favorite Christmas tree ornament.

Since my kiddos are ages 3, 5, 7 we're kind of in the tree being covered in homemade ornaments phase. But I do have a favorite ornament...actually ornaments. Here they are:

Katie's 1st Christmas ornament
Patrick's 1st Christmas ornament
Josie's 1st Christmas ornament
These ornaments always remind me of my little ones as teeny babies and how special each one of them are. I'll admit these ornaments are a tiny bit of a pain since each year I have to polish them and one household chore I do not like doing is polishing silver. But, I polish them up so they are nice and shiny. They are hung directly under the angel at the top of the tree but are always close to my heart. Even when my little ones are grown and have children of their own, I'll hang these ornaments at the top of our tree and remember their first Christmases.

Now to today's Name That Tune!


I'll try to make it a little easier today. Here's today's lyric:

"A mole, livin' in a hole, diggin' up my soul, goin' down, excavation."

SO easy people...leave me a comment and tell me what it is.

Those are great ornaments. The ornaments that are meaningful and bring back memories are the best.

You are aware that Baloney cheats, right?
