Oh Christmas Tree

A Christmas tree holds many memories.  I think that is what a tree is for--to hold those special memories of days past.

A few of my special memories:

Sam chose to wear her original dress this year for her Christmas picture.  Christmas is special for that is when Samantha (Sam) joined our family.

How my sister loved anything that sparkled. She even wore sparkles.  What makes this ornament so special is, it is the last ornament my sister ever chose for Christmas.  She was so very sick but one day she felt good and wanted to go to the Bon. Now day's the store is called Macey's.
When it was the Bon, they always did Christmas up in a big way and had ton's of decorated trees.  This decoration caught Maurine's eye. I knew it would after all, it sparkles.

 Santa, jumped into my shopping cart one day, when Zoe was just old enough to grab things from the shelves.  Of coarse he came home with us.

Mr. Bluebird joined when our grandson Isaiah was helping decorate the tree and happened to mention a tree needs birds. So he picked out birds and sure enough the tree needed birds.

 The best memory of all--the special gifts the kids make in school.  All their love sent with their very special made with love gift.


  1. Oh your American Girl doll! I should get our Molly down down and put her in her green velvet dress. :)

    I wanted to thank you for your kindness and friendship. My wish is that your holiday season is filled with peace, love and joy.

    May you and yours be blessed with health and happiness in the new year.

    1. Molly would love to come out of the attic and spend Christmas with the family.

      May you also have a wonderful holiday season.

  2. I love your memories...our tree has always been a memory, traditional covered in decorations that you can barely see the tree...:)

    1. since we moved I lost a lot of decorations. The good ting about memories is we are always making new ones!

      Thank you so much for your lovely comments.
