Christmas Trees, Christmas Trees

Kelly is hosting "Show us your Christmas tree" this week. Here are the two that I have in my house this year. The first one is in our living room, it is filled with the ornaments we have gotten each other in the almost nine years we have been married. Each year we get each other an ornament that reflects something that happened that year. Every ornament has a special memory attached and it is fun to relive those times each Christmas.

One of my favorite ornaments I got from an exchange we had at church several years ago.

Gavin's first ornament

The ornament I gave Shawn a few years back when he had done a lot of renovations to our house that year.

Part of our "Santa's clothes" garland. I have Santa, Mrs. Claus and the
elves all bought over the past few years.
Also the picture of Gavin from his first Christmas!

The second tree is in my sons room. He decorated it himself, (with the exception of the lights and ribbon.) He is 5 and I thought he did a great job!

Next year, hopefully we will be moved into our new house (well our newly remodeled home) and I hope to have more trees throughout the house. I have always wanted a "FORMAL TREE" you know the ones that are perfectly decorated with all matching bows, ribbon, glass ornaments, etc. I hope to have that next year in my living room window, but for now these are the 2 I have.

I love Christmas and I enjoy looking at all the trees in this blog hop!

Merry Christmas everyone!!!
