Even in the early days, I gave nicknames to the ornaments to keep track of them and to help tell them apart. This one was always Little Brownie or just Brownie. When you’ve got several hundred black and white penguins dressed in green and red spread out on the dining room table and the TV room table and half the floor in both rooms, it’s always nice to have one like this that stands out in the crowd. And besides, Little Brownie is downright cute.

  1. Ashley, you can see why it's hard for me to pick a favorite. And we still have hundreds to go.
