The two photographs show the Christmas Tree collectible year ornaments from Waterford (above) and Wedgewood (below). Will’s tree is displayed with 25 Jasperware blue and white year ornaments. Evan’s tree is hung with 29 Waterford lead crystal year ornaments. Mary orders these each year. The boys’ grandmother, the late Sara Doss Donley of Canton, Georgia, started acquiring them beginning at their births.
We still display them in our dining room. One of these days, they may travel to our sons’ homes.
