Decorating our Christmas tree

I have always loved decorating for Christmas.
I would be so excited to be the one to put the ornaments on the tree.  The boys just didn't get as into it as I did!
I loved seeing ornaments that my brothers and I had made at school that would go on our tree every year.
Now, as I have my own family and tree, some of those same ornaments are still in boxes waiting to go on the tree year after year.

Only now, it is not me who fights for position to decorate the tree, it is C-girl and B-boy.
They each have their own ornaments that we put on the tree every year.
They love asking about my older ornaments, the ones I made long ago when I was in school.

A Christmas tree is a family history of sorts.  One that continues to grow every year. 
It is filled with memories, love and such a joy that never gets old.

There is nothing like having the lights out and be snuggled up with your family on the couch by the glow of the Christmas tree.
Here is our tree last year.


  1. I love what you said about the Christmas tree as family history! Your tree is beautiful and it looks like everyone had a great time decorating.

  2. Aww thanks! We did have a great time!

  3. It looks amazing! I can't wait to see it in person! Hopefully sometime soon because I miss you!!


I always love hearing from you!
