    My daughters made a "50 reasons to celebrate Karen" box for me on my 50th birthday. Inside a homemade box were 50 slips of paper, each with a characteristic of mine, such as "always makes holidays special." Really made me cry.

    All the Christmas ornaments my boys have made over the years. I believe I cherish these most, because my mom still put the ornaments my brother and I made on the tree up til the day she died.

    My mother-in-law knitted my daughter baby booties incorporating our wedding colors and ribbon from our wedding invitations as ties. I both love and treasure them.
