Remember this Halloween with a Personalized Ornament!

Well, I suppose it is time to admit defeat.  The kids are back in school, if you are here in the Pacific Northwest like us, the rains have set in, and Christmas decorations are out in the stores-this can only mean one thing.  Summer is definitely over, and fall is upon us.  Fall is not all bad, though.  Who doesn’t love the changing of the leaves, pumpkin pies, and Halloween?  One might not automatically make the connection between Halloween and personalized Christmas ornaments, but you know we sure do!  Getting the kiddos all dressed up and taking them out for a magical night of trick or treating is definitely a memory to be remembered, so why not personalize an ornament that you can look back on for years to come?  We have some ornaments in our huge inventory of over 1500 ornaments that are sure to fit the bill.

Personalized Christmas Ornaments for Kids!

I don’t know about you, but there are big things happening in my house this year. Every year of a child’s life is filled with milestones, but it seems like none are quite as exciting as the fifth year.

From the first day of big kid school-kindergarten! and the subsequent first bus ride, to the first lost tooth and visit from the tooth fairy, to first sports and sometimes even a baby sister or brother added to the family, there are many things to be remembered!
What better way to remember them than a personalized Christmas ornament? There are personalized ornaments to commemorate the first tooth lost, as pictured above, or you could choose a tooth fairy personalized Christmas ornament like this one:

There are many different personalized ornament choices to remember the first day of school as well. You could go with a first day of school personalized Christmas ornament that looks like your proud kindergartener:

or instead choose the first bus ride Christmas ornament so you can remember what was probably the favorite part of your new students day.

But school and teeth aren’t the only things that are special in a five year old’s life. Did your kiddo get glasses this year? You could go with an Eyeglasses Personalized Ornament to show your little one how cool they look in their new shades-

Or what if their year wasn’t marked so much by what they did, but more about what they became…like a big sister or brother? No matter the situation, you can find a personalized Christmas ornament for siblings that would fit the bill.

There are big sister ornaments,

as well as big brother ornaments.

So no matter what you’re looking for, we here at have you covered with all of these ornaments in stock plus many, many more, and as always are offering free shipping on all orders over $60!

Personalized Baby Christmas Ornaments for a Cause!

I can’t think of a better reason for a personalized Christmas ornament than to commemorate the birth of a new baby. It is one of, if not the most memorable and exciting times in life. Unfortunately, though, 1 in 8 pregnancies end in a premature birth. Prematurity is the number one killer of newborns, and can lead to a lifetime of serious health problems.
That’s why November is Prematurity Awareness Month. The March of Dimes is leading the fight to identify all causes of prematurity, and find ways to cure them. MOD is the leading authority on helping America deliver stronger, healthier babies. loves strong, healthy babies, and we want to help. For every purchase made with the promo code “DIMES”, we will be donating 10% of the order total directly to the March of Dimes.
So please, go check out our extensive baby Christmas ornament and family personalized Christmas ornament selections and order yourself some lovely gifts while helping babies at the same time!

Halloween Week has Begun!

The first costume event of Halloween Week is officially over!  We took the kids, along with their cousin, Kristin, to the local YMCA where they had a Halloween event complete with games, crafts, and lots and lots of “prizes” to take home!  Who makes this junk, and why do we continue to pile it up in our house?  Seriously, the manufacturing costs of these “toys” must be no more than one cent each, but the children get at least five cents of fun out of them.  It’s marketing genius, and somebody is making a killing off all of us suckers!  The kids had a bucket full of plastic toys that I’m still trying to figure out what the primary purpose of the things are.  One was just a plastic stick, with more plastic sticking out of the sides, that you twirl around and it makes an irritating noise.  Another was one of those “mini-maze” puzzles with the tiny ball-bearing that nobody in their right mind would try and navigate.  I take that back.  I gave it a feeble attempt while waiting for the rest of the family to try and win a “homemade” cake at the Cake Walk.  Nothing but good old fashioned luck in this game.  The best strategy I can recommend is to have a large family that takes up at least a quarter of the spots.  We still lost!  Oh, well.  The lack of junk food secured tonight was only the calm before the storm.  Come the 31st, we’ll have enough candy to start giving it away online with the purchase of every personalized Christmas ornament!


Not a Fun Saturday for The Ornament House Gang!

The weekend did not get off to a great start. In soccer, both Jamie and Holly’s team got absolutely creamed in the rain! I lost count somewhere around 10-1 in both games. The only highlight was watching Jason decked out in his rain gear and running wild like he was at Disneyland! After the double-header of soccer clunkers, we spent some time working on getting Christmas ornament orders ready to ship, as well as prepare some new ornaments for uploading to the website. Finally, with Wendy off to a wine function at the Seattle Art Museum with a couple of friends, I got the kids to bed early to hunker down with a barrel of popcorn and watch the UW – ASU football game–only to watch the Huskies inexplicably lose their heads and give the game away in the final seconds. Oh, well. At least the kids went to bed good…at 7:30pm! I feel kind of guilty about that, but hey, there was a big football game to watch! soccer girls
