This is our Christmas tree with some of the ornaments we have collected over the years. My husband and son picked out this tree about three or four years ago. When they called to ask me about getting a white tree, I wasn't too crazy about the idea. Trees are green, not white. But I have to say that it has grown on me. In the evenings when it is the only light on in the room, it is so pretty.
This angel wreath hangs across from our front door. It is surrounded by some of the Christmas cards we have received this year. Every year in January when Christmas things are packed away, this wreath always manages to get left hanging up. About July, my husband will ask if I plan on putting it away. I tell him that Christmas is just around the corner, so we might as well leave it up. Some years the Christmas cards don't get taken down until May or June, lol.
