Our tree isn’t huge or fancy or all coordinated. But every year we pull a hundred memories out of the ornament box when we decorate. The breakable ornaments are put up top, everything down below is fair game for the kids and they get shuffled and moved all over and the garland gets messed up, but that’s the way we love it.
We went to a fake tree when we moved to Lubbock, Texas there wasn’t an abundance of fresh pine trees. Oh, how I miss the smell!….but don’t miss watering, worrying about it catching on fire, vacuuming pine needles…
crafts made by little hands and lots of love
yikes! reindeer is missing his eyes…
at the very top sits an ornament my husband gave me our first year we were married…it would be one of the things I would grab if we had 15 minutes to evacuate our home.
An old key chain of my husband’s that he hides every night somewhere on the tree. The kids LOVE trying to find him in the morning. Some of you do elf on the shelf, we do spikey.
and a plenitude of It’s a Wonderful Life Ornaments:
There are a bajillion other trees being shared over at Thrifty Decor Chick’s (Sarah) Christmas tree party:
