Christmas is such a special holiday filled with traditions and memories.
Some of the happiest memories of my life were made during the Christmas season
Putting up the Christmas tree, always brings back memories of Christmas’ past.
Like the year my husband cut down a tree off a friends property, it was a nice big tree and FREE!…….It was big alright, when we got it into the house it’s branches stretched across more than half of or family room! It just wasn’t going to work, and taking it back out of the house proved even more difficult! We still laugh about that tree to this day! Which is probably one of the reasons we no longer get a real tree.
This was our FIRST Christmas tree, our first Christmas we were married, and our only Christmas that we were not parents.
(oh, I think he’s going to shoot me for posting some of these pictures! LOL)
Each year the same angel is placed atop the tree.
Look at the look of excitement on my nieces face!
the family picture,
usually in front of the tree
These pictures are VERY special to me……..
They were taken the last Christmas we spent with my Dad
This is my family -
Me, my Dad, my Mom and my Brother
As silly as taking all of those pictures may seem some times, I’m SO thankful I take them.
As our girls have gotten older, we have let some traditions go (no more trips to the mall to see the Big Guy…)
