Decorating for Christmas....

After we got our huge tree, it took us a few days to find time to decorate it but we finally did!!
It's so much fun as we unpack the ornaments every year. Each one has a special memory and the kids love to hear the stories of their ornaments as we take turns putting them up.
I am a huge believer in family traditions and this is one of my favorites!!
Our tree definitely isn't matched and all perfect like those you see in the magazines but I wouldn't change it for the world! Ours has memories and to me that is even more beautiful!
Another thing the kids love to do is help me set up the manager....
As we set it up, we remember the real story behind Christmas!
Thank you Lord for the birth of Jesus and this sweet time as a family!
