O Christmas Tree

Christmas Tree It’s a family tradition that the weekend following Thanksgiving that Mom and Dad break out the Christmas tree.  One of my favorite moments out of each year is when we get to decorate the tree, hang the ornaments and then stand back in awe of our creation.  Each year we choose a new theme for the tree, and then we go out to the stores to find the perfect ribbon or garland.

2 Thoughts on “O Christmas Tree

  1. I also have a themed Christmas tree every year. Christmas season always starts with me asking my husband, “What color was our tree last year?” (which he never remembers). This year our tree is red and gold and I’m pretty sure next year I’ll bust out a blue and silver tree because I found these beautiful blue ornaments at Macy’s.

    • That sounds awesome. I love blue for Christmas, it screams vintage glam to me. I have a feeling my husband will not remember what our tree looked like in a few weeks, so he will be no help decorating next year.
