Things I Love Thursday 12.4.08

I love decorating for Christmas!! Since our Thanksgiving trip to FL, I feel like I can't seem to get caught up on anything, decorating included! I've been able to tackle a few little things here and there, but am no where near finished transforming our house into a fun Winter Wonderland! I've got 2 of the 3 trees done and have some garland in place, but that's about it. I plan to post pictures of all the finished products soon, but for now, here's a little sneak peak.

This is what I call my "Memories Tree". It has all the memories that remind me of my childhood Christmases. My mom gets us a new ornament every year for Christmas, so those are on there. There are also some ornaments from our tree growing up. The tree skirt was the one we used every Christmas. The most special things on the tree, though, are the the shiny glass balls, garland and the angel. Those belonged to my Nanny (my mom's mom) who passed away in 1990. I only had a few Christmases with her before she died, but I always remember it being such a love-filled time. I love decorating this tree and remembering all the Christmases passed.

Here's the angel that belonged to my Nanny. Not the prettiest thing, but what do you expect for a tree topper that's probably 30 or 40 years old?!?!

And here's an up-close shot of an ornament I made in kindergarten. It just maes me laugh. :)
