The Story Behind Our Family Memory Tree

photo (34)

Our X-Mas tree is really a Family memory tree – as I’m sure several holiday trees are.  It’s a collection of ornaments from family experiences and events:

– 1st X-Mas for the kids
– unique ornaments brought back from special trips
– collection favorite ornaments
– sports team
– models cars
– collections of Santa’s
– glistening glass bulb ornaments, etc.

The girls remember trying to take a bite out of two ginger bread figurines my great aunt gave us years ago.   The ornaments are made of soap and still has the little teeth marks from that secretive bite when no one was looking!  : )

One of my favorite ornaments is a silly felt stuffed penguin made by Hallmark Cards years ago.  It sits on the lowest branch of the tree and rattles when touched.  It was a favorite of our dog, Patch.  He would rattle the ornament almost daily when inspecting the newest gifts under the tree.  Although Patch is no longer with us, the ornament has a special placement on our tree and in our hearts.  And last night we found our cat, Buster, playing with the ornament – and hearing that special rattling sound.  It made Jon and I smile and remember several past family celebrations and memories around the tree.

And isn’t that what the Holidays are all about – memories and time with family! : )

Lake Gifts Perfect for Christmas

We all miss the lake in the winter months.

But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be getting ready for next season!

Time at the beach. Relaxing on a boat. Enjoy cocktails in the heat of the summer.  It will be here before we know it.

I found this website called Signals.com that has a section full of lake gifts.

If you have a loved one who enjoys being at the lake, these are perfect gifts for Christmas!

I just love the tote above! Be sure to pass this on to your loved ones (or Santa) hint hint : )
