The Christmas tree is a really subdued affair this year. I had no expectations for it lasting through Christmas because I have sat it up in the "play zone;" where little fingers can touch it but, surprisingly they have left it alone. I used monotone colors of gold, silver, and green.
The big change this year was that we added a vintage star I found at the thrift store. We have never had a tree topper. I put it out for a vote and asked the family what we should get,an ornament, angel, or star. It was overwhelmingly voted to be a star. So off I went thrifting till I found the perfect one!
I still have the family picture ornaments of the children all in their toddler Santa suits. They will always be a favorite of mine. Now that they are reaching their 20's the pictures are looking old/vintage. I never thought that they would be grown up this much, I think I will always remember their little years the most.
Merry Christmas to all of you!
