|"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!
