If you know me very well, then you know that I love to incorporate family and history into everything that I do.
This year’s family Christmas tree holds so many wonderful memories of family members past and present.

My full tree..
I am going to use this basket and galvanized tub to put some of our presents in this year. The rest will just be piled on the floor like usual. My kids love the piles…
I found some beautiful vintage blue green ornaments this year as well as white and silver ones. I also used some blue that I picked up at Hobby Lobby. I love the pop of blue here and there throughout the tree.
I have to tell you that I am loving my tree this year. I have never really had a “grown up” tree before.
All of my trees over the last nineteen years have had gobs and gobs of “Hallmark” type ornaments, colored lights, and just been very busy.
I got permission from my family this year to do our tree a little bit different. They were a little reluctant at first, but can I just tell you that they LOVE it. They have told me many times how pretty they think it is and how happy they are that we did something different.
We are all happy.
Now I just need to wrap some gifts and get them underneath and they will really be happy.
Heading to some parties tonight…
