Christmas 2013 013 (800x600)

Our Christmas tree is full of memories, in fact I call it our, “Memory Tree,” I like to change certain elements each year, but the memory tree always remains the same.

(To see last years tree and read about why ornaments are so precious to our family go HERE!)

I will add  different colored balls and ribbons,but each little ornament holds a memory for our family.

Ribbet Edit 2013 Christmas Inspirationa

We made some changes to our family room this past year so I coordinated by decorations and gift wrapping with the room.

You will see black and white, blue and white and an addition  of pops of  different shades of green.

I have not used blue on my tree for years. Our very first Christmas tree had blue and silver balls on it over 44 years ago. 

Funny how what goes around comes around again.

There are still some things I need to do to finish decorating in the family room, but our tree is done so I thought I would share it with you today.

You can see our tree is packed with memories. 

First pair of shoes, soccer and baseball buttons, first pair of glasses. Ornaments made by 3 little boy’s hands.

There are pictures of my Boys, their beautiful wives and my 3 gorgeous Grandchildren. We even have ornaments that look like our family pet Mitsy who now has angel wings.
