I have so many favorite ornaments and Christmas things that have been handed down; my tree is full of my ornaments that my son made when he was in school. It is just too hard to choose a favorite from any of those.
There are so many memories in those boxes that we bring out each year. Many of the the givers are gone now but it feels like they are with us when I put the decorations out each year.
This is our pyracantha bush out front. This is what we trim it for all year. It is the pride of our loop. The neighbors love it. It sits on our property at the curve in the loop so everyone can enjoy it. You may recognize it in another incarnation as the hawk tree. I think he makes a great star on top of the tree.
And then there is Shayna; she makes a lovely ornament!
The sum total of all the wonderful things we save from year to year and love more each year equals a very Merry Christmas. And that is our wish for all of my ActiveRain friends. Enjoy family and friends.
