December Festivities

Hi everyone~  I decided to close my shop for the month of December.  Probably not the smartest choice for my business but definitely the smartest choice for my family.  I was feeling out of touch with everyone so I'm going to blog this month.  Enjoy: and feel free to comment~

My husband was off last weekend so it was my opportunity to say "hey hon, wanna put the Christmas stuff up?"  It was still November but I was pleased that I got it out of the way.

Here is my tree:

I have been collecting ornaments since my first Christmas tree at 18.  I won't tell you how long that is but its been a while.  My tree consists of childhood memories, ornaments from my grandmother when she passed, some from my mother, quite a few from my hubby and majority of the space is made up of my children's handmade ornaments or memories with them.  Amanda, my oldest daughter has a set of 12 angels that I let her place on the tree every year.  I wrap them individually in velvet pouches every year in hopes that when it's time for her to have her 1st Christmas tree these will be her 1st Ornaments.  I haven't found anything that I want to collect for Ashley yet to pass on- so any suggestions would be helpful.

Happy Holidays!

I love your tree! It is so beautiful. There is nothing I love more than setting up my Christmas tree -- I set mine up last weekend as well. Just like you, I have so many memories that are attached to each ornament, and that's what makes setting up the tree so wonderful. Here's to the beauty and wonder of Christmas :)

My ornaments are full of memories too, every year I buy my kids a new one and hang the ones they made. Plus the tree itself it was my parent's so that means lot to me.

That's awesome! Our tree is also made up of ornaments from Dan & I as kids but now we started a tradition that every year the boys get new ornaments with their name and date on it so they may enjoy looking at them for years to come like we do!
