Yep, it’s another Christmas tree picture:

Seymour’s had Data for longer than I’ve known him, but the Enterprise is a recent acquisition.  I told Seymour and Bubbles they’d wear out the batteries on it the other night; as we were setting up the tree, they kept pushing the ornament’s play button so they could hear the intro from Star Trek: The Next Generation.  It was awfully funny, and reminded me of when I was a kid.  My grandma used to have these bird ornaments that would sing when you tapped their beaks.  Her cardinal ornament was my favorite; they have such a pretty song.  I’m pretty sure I wore out its batteries. 🙂

In the end, we decided that, so long as no one shows the boys how it works, our pretty ornament will live to speak another year.

What are some of your favorite ornaments?

    My favorite ornaments are the ones our cats haven’t destroyed. Seriously, I think we’re down to plastic ornaments from the dollar store. I’ve got a few priceless ornaments my kids made in daycare and school, which have their pictures. I wouldn’t trade those for the world.

      I have a few that the kids have made in school, too, but they seem to do less of that now than they used to. I have some special ones from when I was a kid, and a whole shoebox full of ornaments that my grandparents made when I was growing up. Those are some of my favorites – I just love the idea of handing things down from one generation to the next. 🙂

      We had Christmas with my aunt and uncle last night and they gave Seymour another Enterprise ornament. I think it’s one from the original series, but I haven’t looked at it yet. And Bubbles got a storm trooper ornament and a Yoda ornament, so he was pretty excited, too. 🙂

      Have you seen the entries in Chuck Wendig’s nerdtivity contest? One of the winning entries involved the cast of the original Star Trek. It was awesome. 🙂
