To get the full scoop on my family's traditions surrounding ornaments, see Day One
Last year a good friend sent us not one, but two, very cute ornaments--one for each of our cats. She had even had the seller, Nicole Porcelain, personalize each one with our cat's names and the year. Too cute.
This year, they each have a place a pride on our tree. And the best news? The porcelain does not look like a cat toy, so these are part of a very important class of ornaments--ones that can be safely hung on the bottom half of the tree. : )
