Show & Tell~~O' Christmas Tree, O' Christmas tree...

It's Show & Tell Friday! Be sure to stop by Kelli's, There's no place like home to see who else is sharing today :0)

Last Friday night~ Hubby, myself and our two littlest fellows went to find our Christmas tree...




Searching...Searching....Wait! Could that be "it" ?!

This year it's decorated with both old and some newer ornaments. I've many Disney ornaments from my older kid;s childhood years and some hand made by my oldest child. We've got Crystal ornaments, as well as glass. I'll share those another time.

Just a few for now though...

That is a beautiful tree and you did a great job decorating it. We have a very similar Tigger ornament on ours as well.

Thanks for your warm wishes on our new pregnancy. I'm doing ok, some sickies but nothing unbearable. We're due the first week of August.

Merry Christmas!

You love natural trees, too!! We always buy a real tree every year. It's a tradition, going to the tree yard and everyone having a say in choosing.

This year, my 11 yo ds fell in love with a small tree that he felt sure nobody wanted. But it was a little too small. We had to have a concensus.

Anyway, thank you for sharing your ornaments.

I hope you are enjoying the Season!
Blessings,
Elizabeth

This brings back wonderful memories of when our kids were little. We always went to all the lots around looking for just the right tree. We have laughed a lot about one year when our son went way to the back and we could hear him hollering that he had found the tree he wanted. Of course that's the one we bought. Now we just go out to the garage, bring the tree in, set it up and try to figure out why half the lights aren't burning. They were burning when we took it down last year. It was more fun the old way.
What a sweet song the little children are singing. I hadn't heard that birthday song for Jesus before.
Christmas Hugs,
Charlotte

I think Christmas trees were the first scrap books. The best moments are when the hubby and I are pulling out those handmade ornaments and telling the kids stories about their earlier years.
