Christmas Tree 2011

Our tree.
It's very different from the trees we decorated when
the kiddos were little.

Each year since their birth, our kids were given ornaments for Christmas.
Ornaments came from grandparents, aunts & uncles, us and their friends. 
Those ornaments are now sorted into 3 boxes, one for each kid. 

This is our 2011 Christmas tree.

and our 2010 Christmas Tree

The 2009 Tree

and the 2008 Tree

  1. Your tree is quite beautiful!

  2. (sniff-sniff...)
    I love ornaments and the stories/memories they hold.

  3. Good decision that -- setting up the tree even when we don't feel like it :)
