Have You Got Your Tree Up Yet? Oh and Also a Giveaway
It's Christmas, and our tree is up. It was put up by me alone. I miss the days when our Princesses were little and wanted to help put up the tree. We put up our tree on Thanksgiving night and listened to Christmas music. They all had their ornaments to put on the tree. The best part of watching them decorate was how they talked about the memories attached to special ornaments. Dad would come in and put the Angel on the tree when we were all done. We stood back as he turned off all the lights and lit the tree.
Since our littlest Princess was born, we have made yearly family ornaments with characters and everyone's name, and the dog. We have added names to our family ornaments as our family grows. Once all our Princesses left for college and adulting, I put up the tree alone and only put on the family ornaments. If you noticed, the Angel is still in its box. One of our new traditions is that Dad puts the Angel on the tree once everyone is home.
I would love to hear some of your traditions. So, in the season of giving, I will be giving away a $10.00 Starbucks gift card to one person who leaves a comment about one of their holiday traditions on my Facebook Author page.
