Oh, Christmas tree, Oh, Christmas tree, how lovely are your branches.
This is my lovely Christmas tree this year. I don't have a theme. We all have ornaments that we have collected over the years that are very special to us. So, it's a hodge podge of different tastes. Some are handmade, some are store bought, each one has a wonderful memory attached to it. Even the putting on of decorations is a tradition that we have become accustomed to over the years. I pick the ornament out of the holder, put a hook on it, then give it to one of the kids or DH and they place them on the tree.
Here is our family wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and an abundantly blessed New Year.
What are your traditions?

Love your tree! Most of my ornaments have been given to me and are so much fun to unpack each year. Just stopping by from SITS! Have a great Tuesday!

It's a beautiful tree! Reminds me of our tree growing up. We did pretty much the same thing. There were never any themes or color schemes or anything, just a random collection of ornaments that were all so very precious.

Merry Christmas!

We have all different kinds of ornaments on our tree, too. It's fun to look at them and remember all the stories behind each one. Have a Mery Christmas!

Looks like our tree. I had such a "gorgeous" tree before kids. All white lights and gold ornaments and ribbon. But, now with kids I have an eclectic collection, and it doesn't ever match, but it is beautiful! Beautiful because each ornament has a special memory for someone in the family...
