When my husband and I first married (December 5th 1998) we didn't have tons of money for a fancy Christmas tree and decorations - especially not so soon after the wedding. But we thought it would be fun if we bought one really nice Christmas decoration every year, so that eventually, we would be able to get rid of all the cheap decorations and have a lovely set of decorations which would one day maybe become something of a family heirloom to pass to any children we would have.
The first year, the special decoration was our Christmas angel for the top of the tree.
This year, was a special one for my son (technically it is his, as I gave it to him but it will be on our tree for a while yet I suppose).
Not all of our decorations are beautiful and perfect. Having a 9 year old means that we also have some hand made decorations from school art projects but they all make a home on our tree.
It's a tree filled with Christmas memories and that's what makes it special to us.
|Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!|
