Christmas Ornament Countdown: Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!  I hope you are still enjoying browsing at our Christmas ornaments.  I have loved reliving all of our trips again.  I couldn't decide which ornament to save for Christmas day so I just saved the two ornaments from our most favorite places from our last trip.

I had so looked forward to our day at the Ingalls Homestead in De Smet, South Dakota and was anxiously watching the clouds as we drove there. The rainstorm quickly passed over us and it then became the most perfect day ever.  I would jump in the car in a heartbeat if you asked us to return but since we had such a great time last trip, I just don't know if it would live up to our past visit. We made corn husk dolls, made rope, the kids drove the covered wagon, rode a horse, drove a cart, washed clothes and went to a prairie school.  Here is the link from that day.

Now Robby's favorite stop on this year's trip was the Henry Ford Museum and Greenwich Village. We did love it so much that we bought a pass to return sometime this year.  It was just amazing-we were surrounded by history: Wright Brothers shop, McGuffy's house, Edison's laboratory and so much more.  But the most fun was riding in the Model Ts.  The kids still talk about that!  Click here for the write up about that day.

It looks like I still have plenty of old ornaments to talk about next year and hopefully, we will be able to add a few to our collection.  Have a merry Christmas!
