One of my newest traditions started a few years back when my niece Jackie became engaged to Brian. I bought them an adorable Christmas ornament! It had two teddy bears in a hot air balloon. I had the year inscribed on the balloon. "Jackie" was written on the girl bear and "Brian" on the guy bear. Jackie seemed so thrilled with it, so I told her that would be my special thing to do for them each Christmas! Now since she is in Paraguay, South America, I don't want to take a chnace of having it get lost in the mail or possibly broken. However, Rita will be here in Florida this summer. I will give it to her to take down to Jackie when she goes down there in October. I wanted to post it here though for now so Jackie and Brian and Elena can at least see what I picked out for them this year! It was fun adding Elena to the ornament this time. I missed last year because they were in Costa Rica and I just did'nt have a way to get it to them. So now, (drum roll please) the unveiling of the McCobb Christmas Ornament for 2006!!!
