Maryland Blogger: Our Christmas Tree

Our Christmas Tree

Our Christmas Tree

 

A couple of ActiveRain bloggers asked me to post a photograph of our Christmas tree. We use a small tree that will not hold all of the ornaments that we have collected over our 53 years of marriage. Chef Dolores makes the selections and hangs the ornaments. Every ornament has a story.

Best wishes to all for a Very Merry Christmas!

Good morning Roy.  It's not the size of the tree, rather the love that surrounds it.

Roy Kelley My parents used to make an ornament each year, early in their (yes, also 50+ years) marriage. And my mother has made a stocking for every child, including now the grandkids. Traditions make strong families.
