I want to post pictures of gifts that we received and gave but right now I want to post some pictures of our tree and some of my favorite ornaments.
We always go to the woods to cut our own tree down. They last so much longer that way and we love the natural look better than the trimmed "perfect Christmas tree shaped" tree. Just smell the difference! Scratch 'n' sniff!
Here's out lovely tree before we decorated it! Isn't it tall? I couldn't even fit the whole thing in the picture!
Who doesn't like the RCMP? The mounties always get their man! (That one was for you Carla!) My mom and I got this in Victoria while on my graduation trip.
My aunt made us a few of these gorgeous stained glass ornaments. They look so beautiful with the Christmas lights shining through them. :)
I love this one too! How thankful I am to Jesus for coming to earth and making a way for us to go to the Father!
Oh! This is one of my favorites! A friend of ours made this little ballerina mouse. She is fearfully and wonderfully made. Right down to her little pink satin ballet shoes and her pearl tiara!
Our tin foil star my brother made years and years ago. It's been recovered I don't know how many times! We always wait for my brother to put it up every year. Even if we have to wait a week until he comes over. :) And we ALWAYS put a blue light through the hole in the center of the star. We are very traditional people! Ha! We always do the exact same things the exact same way every year. I love it. :)
And here it is all decked out for Christmas! Every year we talk about not putting ALL the ornaments on the tree but we always end up putting ALL of them on. Ugly ones and all. I told you we loved tradition! :)
May the Lord shine His face upon you in the coming year and give you PEACE.
