~ 'O Christmas Tree' ~

Hi everyone, I hope you've had a fabulous weekend. Can you believe Christmas is a "short" week away? Goodness it has crept up so quickly this year.
I thought I would share some photos of the main tree in our home. I had planned something else for this post, that will have to happen just a "tad" bit later.






In the past Mr. P has always put the angel on the tree. As Bailey says we have traditions and that happens to be one of them. Due to Mr. P's health he's no longer able to put the angel on the tree, so we moved on to plan B. I made 2 large bows out of silver and white ribbon for the topper, a new tradition begins.  Many years ago Mr. P requested doves for the tree. He normally doesn't say a whole lot about any of the decor in our home. He just grins and bears it.  :-))  I searched one whole fall many years ago to find the white doves. They've taken front and center for almost 28 years now.


A gift from the grandchildren.





Thank you for stopping by to view the tree, until next time...

Your tree is so pretty !! I really like the ribbon and doves. I did very little decorating this year, but have enjoyed visiting around enjoying all the pretty decorating everyone else has done.

I love love your tree, the second picture of the santa in a car was one of my youngest son's favorite ornaments. He use to play by the hour with it on the step in my living room. I use to give each of the boys their ornaments and they would play with them. We have a ceramic Santa on a skateboard with a broken arm and it is so precious to me because I remember the little boy that use to play with him. I hope you and yours have a wonderful, wonderful Christmas,

Your tree is beautiful, Lynne! I love the doves! Sometimes you have to start some new family traditions. For several years when it was just the four of us, we used to go to the movies on Thanksgiving.

Your tree is lovely with the reds and silver! The doves are so special I know! I have two on my tree from when my daughter was "two turtle doves" one year in elementary school. Mine have to be 25 years old and I love them. Such sweet memories!
