After we stopped getting a gold star each year, we decided to get an ornament that represented the place we were living at the time. Since we move a lot, that's sort of fun. Anyway, here's our Seattle ornament.
When we lived there, we were really close to an outdoor mall. My boys' favorite store was Bartell Drug because they sold legos. So when we saw this ornament at Bartells, with a Bartells sitting right in the middle (not that you can really see that in the photo), we thought it was a good Seattle ornament for us. It doesn't only remind us of Seattle, but also the specific place we lived.
