2009 Christmas Tree and Nativity




Here are some pictures of my tree this year. This is the first year in probably 16 or 17 years that I have bought a tree. It is a fir and it is so fresh and soft. Now if I water it I hope it stays that way. I wasn't too enthused with this project this year. But when I saw the trees cut by our community club I changed my mind. I need a topper yet. The Nativity I have had for a very long time, like my very first "married" Christmas gift from my mom. I have it in a wooden crate with an electric "candle" for the star. I will probably drag out more stuff as the month progresses. I just hate to put it all away. I think last year I was really dreading it and did some pretty drastic culling, because when I started looking for my Christmas boxes this year i only found 1. I think I need to go shopping for new stuff. Or else I need ideas for easy cool decorations I can make.
