Favorite Ornament: Dillon

"What is your favorite Christmas ornament and why?"

Dillon's Answer:

My favorite Christmas ornament is not actually an ornament.  It’s a small wooden windup music box.  Shaped like a small toy drum with a tiny wooden train engine and a wooden toy soldier on top.  When you wind it up it rotates slowly and plays a little Christmas song.  I’ve had it since I was a very small boy.  The paint is worn or missing from many parts of it, and I think at one point my dog (Spots) got ahold of it when she was a puppy because there are a few little sharp teeth marks on it.  Every year it comes out of a box and goes on our mantel.  A little reminder of my childhood and the joy of Christmas.  When we wind it up, it still plays its little tune.
