Christmas Ornaments for the nephews

I finished stitching two more Christmas ornaments, but I haven't finish-finished them yet.
Here is my oldest nephew's ornament:
And this ornament is for my DBro and DSisIL. Our second nephew's name is really Zachary Keith, but DH and I started calling him "Zeke" while we were waiting for his arrival. Now that he's here, we call him Zachary or Zach most of the time. I meant to make this for them last Christmas, but my stitching stuff was still out in the P.O.D.S. then.
My oldest nephew's middle name is Paul after his grandfather and great-grandfather. My second nephew's middle name is the same as his dad's, who has the same middle name as our uncle (my mom's brother). I think this male generational naming thing is kind of cool. I myself was named after no one in particular; my mom just liked the name and my dad didn't object.
Now I have to go figure out what to stitch next...

Lisa, this is a great tradition you've started! Now you only have to make them one a year til you die;)
