The Last Tree!

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie!  If you've been reading our blog since Thanksgiving, you'll know that we have three major Christmas trees in the house - plus a tiny one on the mantle.  There is the Patriotic Tree, the tree full of angels and Christmas Nativity carvings, and last, but not least, the ... other tree.  The one ... whispering ... with Sock Monkey on it.  Right.  That one. We need to come up with names for the trees.  Anyway, we thought we'd show you a few special things on that tree today!

"Let's take a look at this tree today!"
"Yeah.  Careful, though.  It's got a Maggie Motion Monitor that goes off if you get too close!"

Right.  At the top of the tree is the Chrismon Crown we showed you last week.  There are all kinds of ornaments on the tree - from Germany, Belgium, and all over the States.  They range from store-bought to hand-made, and each one has a special memory behind it.  See the pretty poinsettia cloth around the base?  Mom's grandmother embroidered that!


Look at these beautiful mittens!


Our great brothers, Zim and Dave won the blue one from Mitch and his angel sister Maggie in 2011 and the red one from Mitch and Mollie in 2012! Their mom made them - aren't they gorgeous!?!  They are very special to us!

Here's another one of our favorites - a very fun-looking husky holding a snowman down:


I'm fairly certain the husky found the snowman like that and had nothing to do with him being flat on the ground, contrary to some assertions I've heard.  Ahem.

We love this ornament:

What it's all about!

We keep it front and center, to help us remember what Christmas is all about!

There are a bunch of other ornaments on there, each one very special.  Oh.  Right.  And, as I mentioned, this is the tree Sock Monkey is on.

"That Me Motion Monitor needs new batteries or something, Mom.  It keeps going off."
"Don't worry, Mom.  I'm watching her."

At least we didn't have to wear the Santa hats today - right?  We hope you enjoyed seeing our Christmas tree!



  1. We have thoroughly enjoyed each and every Tree tour. So many special ornaments from wonderful locations. The embroidered cloth is lovely.

    Mol mol mol your motion detector has gone haywire. I bet there is an Elf on the Self to blame 'cause I know it isn't a Husky at fault

  7. Oh all of your trees are so so beautiful. My momma put up our tiny little tree. She was not going to this year but then... well I came into her life and she just had to do it.

  8. I love all your Christmas trees! We have keepsake ornaments from the places where Ma and Daddy-dog have traveled for our tree. They make for great memories at the holidays.

  9. Since this tree has ornaments on it that are all special memories, maybe you could call it the Memory Tree? Or the Maggie-No! Tree? ;)

  10. What a beautiful tree! We are so happy that the mitten ornies are so special to you. You girls and your Sibe brothers and sisters were all very special to us♥

    Love ya lots♥
