I can't seem to get a good shot of our Family Tree, no matter what camera settings I use, it's blurry. So, here's a blurry shot of our Family Christmas Tree, LOL.... Maygan did 90% of the decorating this year, she did a wonderful job and is very proud of her tree.
This tree is loaded with colored lights (Maygan and her Dad's favorite) and ornaments that were made by the kids, received as gifts and collected over the years.
A few of my favorites are...
This Santa, made by Maygan in preschool
Clothespin Reindeer made by my step-son Austin when he was still in grade school. He's a Junior in college now.
Construction Paper Mittens by Maygan
Felt handprint Reindeer by Maygan
Wooden ornament made by Jimmy
Pretty Doves from my Mom
Beaded Mice from my Sis, the tree skirt was made by my Mom
Maygan's ornament from her Meema
There are six of these little book ornaments. I got them in my stocking when I was a kid, I thought they were the neatest. I saved them all and now they are one of Maygan's favorites. She reads them over and over every year.
I could go on and on with favorite ornaments, each and everyone has a special story.
My birthday cake from yesterday, decorated pretty by Maygan
I just love it!
The school cancelled all activities for the evening because of the weather, so Maygan didn't have her Christmas Concert. We were all disappointed, hoping they reschedule. Hubby picked up dinner on his way home from work, then we had cake and ice cream.
This is a sign that I bought for $1.00 at a second hand store in town, the stars and letters are carved out. I did sand and stain it for more of prim look. I like the way it turned out and for a buck, you can't go wrong.
Have a Blessed Day,
