We were given a lovely Frasier Fir Christmas Tree from my Parents this year, as my dad owns a Christmas Tree farm up in the hills here;
They are so kind to make sure that we always have a nicer than nice tree.
My husband actually works up at the farm during the U-Cut time.
I grew up working there too, it was so fun to help people find just the right tree....especially when they had little kids!
I hauled out the decorations I've been collecting for many years now and went to it!
I've always loved vintage ornaments, and so I try to use them as much as I can.
These pink and turquoise ones are some of my faves!
My sons love the "innys" as they like to call them :)
My sister La Von gave me these lovely aqua picks....she knows what I like!
It's so fun to play around with such pretties.
As much as decorating is very much fun...
I like to remember why we are doing all of this decorating:
Jesus was born unto us.
What an awesome Birthday to celebrate!!!
Who doesn't love to decorate for a Birthday Party?!?!
I love it so much, that when everyone is tired and heads to bed, I stay up late and just sit in the dark staring at the Christmas lights. Don't you? Maybe not until after 1am....but hey...I'm sure you've crossed your eyes and watched a blurry Christmas tree to the faint sound of Holiday music in the background.
If you haven't....then maybe you should!
I find myself closer to the real meaning of the season after I've done so.
Here's to remembering the REAL reason for the Season this Holiday time.
