Our Tree

Here is our tree - I love our tree every year. It is hard to get a good shot (I don't really know what I am doing) with our camera - to get it to look like the right color and not yellowish. And take a look at my curtains - they are dark red, but look purple in this photo.

I really like the silver snowflakes and the red balls, our tree mostly has red, silver and white on it.
A few years ago, I added the names of Jesus - Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

I have a few ceramic tea pots on the tree, and one glass one. The little angel on the right it acrylic, they are very pretty!

Can you see me in the reflection on the red ball? I love this strand of white stars on the tree!

Sarah is our child with a flair for the theater! She loves to dress like the characters in her books, or movies. She has been going through a Nancy Drew phase, but this morning it was "Mary", from The Nativity Story.

Very sweet, indeed.

I love the idea of the names of Jesus on the tree. I have to give that some thought!!!

Even though Sarah and I aren't blood related, she still takes after her Auntie Paula!! LOL

Can you remind me...I think Sarah, Rachel and Nate are the only ones who don't have a stitched something from me???

I love Sarah as Mary. It reminds me of when our boys were young and they used to drape blankets over and around themselves to portray different Bible characters as they acted out their favorite Bible stories.

I love that your tree remembers the names of God. Christmas play helps your children remember the REASON we celebrate. Good for you!
