Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree......

There's nothing like a Christmas tree to bring out some serious nostalgia. I don't have ornaments that match nor do they have a 'theme', my ornaments are remnants of past experiences. I have some hand me downs that came from my mother, I have others that were made by my Grandmother and my Memere. I have some that I bought for my very first Christmas tree and a couple that were given to me from my neighbor's trip to Disney this summer for watching their house.

The best part of my conglomorate of ornaments are those that the Monkey has made from paper, beads and other non-sensicle materials - the ones that were made from the heart with love (or because he was bored at school and someone helped him step-by-step). Either way, they are proudly hung year after year and kept safely when not on display.

Our tree is a work of art, and I love it. I hope yours bring as much joy to you as mine does for me.
