I think we got a very nice tree from the Boy Scouts this year. We usually like to get a wild tree ( not cultured) but this year there were none left except for a few "Charlie Brown" trees. (My mum always liked the Charlie Brown trees) So we got this tree which is shaped a bit but really looks more natural than cultured. I think it is a very pretty tree. There hanging on the door behind the tree is Andrew's Christmas stocking from years ago - one he had to colour with fabric crayons. I am still not finished that last stocking - I have until Sunday night - right!!
One year - about 7-8 years ago I made a bunch of these little Santa ornaments. Very cute and easy to make and I kept one for myself. There is a little bell hanging from the end of his hat - so he jingles a little bit.
This is our tree angel. Andrew made this angel in about Grade 3 I think. It has been on the tree every year since. Sometimes when we take it out of storage it needs a little repair - this year I used a glue gun on it so it should be better. I just love this little angel - it is one of the things that remind me what Christmas is really all about -- love, family, peace and hope.
God Bless and Merry Christmas.
