Mom's favorite ornaments

Mom wanted to show you are few of her very favorite ornaments.
(never fear Madi is below)

The bride's ornament was given to Mom at her wedding shower  in December 1969.
It is on the tree every year...
 This wasn't really a Christmas ornament.  It was on a baby shower
gift Mom received in 1971 just before the first family 'DIVA' was born. That is correct I'm not the first DIVA
 It is also on our tree every year
Mom says this isn't really an ornament...but she caught me
in the 'act'!! So of course it has been documented!!!
Is this for me Mom?

I bet it is a new Diva throne

What it isn't for me????
It is for my sis and her hubby....What is it???
 Well fine I'll just sit here until the cows come home
Forget the cows, I have a better idea.
 I think I'll turn on my laser eyes...maybe I can see what is
in the box!!!


  1. What wonderful ornaments, those are the special ones that bring back memories each time we see them on the tree.

    Madi, it looks like the box itself is the diva throne. Have your laser eyes figured out what's inside the package yet?

    I didn't know that Alabama had broken up but I'm not surprised, I was listening to them in the seventies. They were around for a long time.

    Hugs & Purrs,
    J and Cindi Lou

  2. I sure Madi was just making sure it was wrapped properly....better check all the presents!!

  3. LOL It's a Nice throne already Madi! Those are wonderful special ornaments too!
