They would have asked for directions, arrived on time, helped deliver the baby, cleaned the stable, made a casserole, and brought practical gifts.
and there would be peace on earth! ,......thanks Taxi, I love that!

I'll probably leave ours up for another week, too. Meant to post this earlier, but have been busy I love decorating the tree because pulling out my favorite ornaments reminds me of the people and places they came from and brings me great joy.

We got the white ornament, a clodagh, when we visited Ireland in 2003:


This one is handmade by my mother and it's over 40 years old:


There used to be a Christmas shop in our neighborhood when we first bought our house; we bought a few boxes of the hand-painted glass balls each year. The snowflakes remind me of growing up in Michigan.


A former neighbor's child made this gingerbread bear for us about 15 years ago.


My favorite aunt, now deceased, gave us this gorgeous ornament.


One of our former exchange students from Germany gave us this one.


Hope you're continuing to enjoy the holiday season!

GG, those ornaments are great, especially with the stories that go with them.

I too have a memory tree. Our first ornament to go on the tree each year is "our first Christmas together" one. It went up this time for the 33rd time. Each ornament on the tree has a special memory and story to go with it.
