My Sunday Photo 20.12.15


This picture represents quite a special memory for me. The small boy being five now was desperate to get a Christmas tree AND decorate it AND put a star on top. So, uncharacteristically bowing to pressure we bought a tree and put it up much earlier than we would have done under normal circumstances.

For me this is a lovely memory. It’s the first tree me and he have decorated together. We spent time making some nice decorations to go on the tree, and we talked about some of the baubles and trinkets we were hanging which came from my childhood and his dad’s childhood trees. For us this is a Christmas tree hanging with memories, some very old, some very new, but all of them precious, to us at least.

Merry Christmas, and thanks for visiting my blog, I do appreciate it. Love and luck for 2016 x

  1. For the past three years, we’ve started putting up the decorations as of December 1st. It’s hard to contain the kids’ excitement, isn’t it?

  6. Cherish these times, mine are growing out of it now, it’s hard. I decorated the tree on my lonesome, this year *sob* xx

  7. A Christmas tree is so special especially when it’s showered with past memories of children’s Xmas art that was made years ago or recent attempts. Long may this new tradition last for you!

    Lovely, Christmas memories are made of stories like this, my two used to take it in turns every year putting the star on the tree. It was a long two years for them!
