A Tree Full of Memories

One of our Christmas traditions is to buy an ornament each year to mark something memorable that occurred during the year. It makes putting up the tree something of a walk down memory lane. Here's just a few that I of my goals this year is to get better at taking photos and actually using them, rather than leaving them on the card in the camera.
I hope you had a lovely Christmas! 
Happy New Year to each of you from all of us.
Jason, Shelly, Aidan and Easton Van Binsbergen

Canadiana Christmas ~ a hockey playing Santa, a Tim Horton's pot of coffee and my favourite hockey team logo.

A Delft pottery ornament from our '95 trip to Holland

A felted mitten from our first Christmas in the prairies '93 and a little church to commemorate
our first pastoring job in Kelowna, BC in '94

Spiderman~ he's been around since '94 or so. Jason's favourite ornament.

A cardinal and a snowman ~ one of our first white Christmases

A terracotta ball from Ensenada, Mexico where we spent a fun week with Lisa and Misty and the
Moss family at the YWAM base there.
