Holiday Traditions - FIAR Ornament Exchange Tree

We've gotten so many fantastic ornaments through the years from our FIAR ornament exchange I finally did what many of my fellow rowers did many years ago, we bought a tree just for our FIAR ornaments! :)

We've put it in our school room and have all of our ornaments lovingly placed on the tree. The kids have really enjoyed looking at all the ornaments from years past all in one spot. We don't have our big tree up yet, so they are enjoying this small one w/ all these special ornaments all the more. :)

I LOVE it! So very cool. I have considered buying a tree too but every Christmas we end up just putting them on our regular tree. We have many of the same ornaments. ;-) Loved seeing the ones we don't have too.

We made the purple crayon. :o) It is fun to see them all. This is our third year exchanging and I know enjoy it more than the kids do!

I just saw the corks we sent last year for our Ferdinand ornament. It looks like they are hanging right next to the crayon. :o)

We made the glow in the dark moonjelly for Night of the Moonjellies. Love seeing all the ornaments! I'm getting another tree just for the fiar ornaments for next year.
