Our Christmas Tree
What kind of Christmas tree do you have in your home? For many years now we have enjoyed an artificial tree. Gasp!! Years ago we would get a live tree and every year the needles would be on the floor before we knew it. With an artificial tree we are able to put it up after Thanksgiving and enjoy it the whole Christmas season. Yes, a real tree smells heavenly and truthfully is heavenly. Our children still have live trees in their homes. As the years have advanced we want to still enjoy a large tree. Our tree has the lights already on it which is so easy. I remember many years being frustrated with the strands of lights that needed repair.
A Christmas tree is truly a walk down memory lane. Angie (our angel) is put on top of our tree as she has topped our tree for her fiftieth Christmas. Ornaments from our parents adorn our tree along with ornaments made by our children as children. Honestly we are unable to put all of the ornaments on our tree. I used to put up another large tree in the living room, but it's not practical as our family has grown and we need the room for people and not trees.

The tree is the first item that we bring out to start the Christmas decorating. Along with candles in the windows, we prepare for the most wonderful time of the year. 🎄🎄🎄
