I've posted very little about my Christmas decorating this year.
The little I have posted has been
showing our tree laying on the floor.
and then again when we finally got it up
and wired to the wall.
Well, now it is decorated as well.
I went on the light side this year and only decorated
with one tote of ornaments. Mostly those that have
special meaning in some way.
So I got some decent pictures and thought I would share.
The Lollipop is mine from a child.
The candy canes, Mallory and I made this year
from pipe cleaners. Fun little craft!
Santa and Mrs. Claus were always on the tree
as a child and I inherited them. And then of course
I have decorations here and there that my girls made
That's Hillary there on the Christmas tree ornament
from 1st grade, she's now in College.
We went to my hubby's office Christmas party
last night and a few of the women were talking about
"needing" new decorations. They have had their's for a
few years now and they were tired of them.
I've had mine for at least 29 yrs....
some longer, and I couldn't bare to get rid of them.
There's a memory tied to every one!
To me that's
They each have a place....
These 3 guys were supposed to be a gift for my Mom
one year. I just couldn't give them up!
Mom got another one from me instead.
I always think of that!
Sully just lays where ever he pleases.
Yes, he is a huge cat. Heavy too.
I am in need of a larger tree skirt. I would love to have something
made out of burlap. We have had this tree skirt for about 24 yrs.
I will pass this down to a daughter at some point. I have lots
of Christmas to pass down. Not get rid of!
There is a difference! My girls are starting to embrace
the "traditions" of decorating with memories.
Yes, they will have their own. As have I.
But, mine also include some from my childhood.
And I wouldn't have it any other way!
What Christmas memories do you embrace every year?
