Oh Christmas Tree

kirkusDecember 14, 2011

This our our old-fashioned Christmas tree... I took our kids into our woods with me to search for the perfect tree. :o) (It doesn't look like it in this photo but it's about 8 feet tall.) So fun to decorate with the kids. My wife made the tree skirt. :o) The best part about it all... I woke up at 2:00 a.m. the night we had decorated it to find our 4 year old son sitting in the livingroom with all of the lights off except the lights of the tree. He was just sitting there, looking at the tree and smiling. :o)

It's a beauty, Kirk! Love it! Love it! DH & I finished decorating our tree today ...we got it Sun from a tree farm called 'Kris Kringle' & Kringle was there, too.
Carol's tree skirt is beautiful! Hugs to all! Jeanne S.

What a delightful tree, nothing wrong with old-fashioned!
Sure brings back some memories for me that were kind of 'hidden' till I saw your tree. Thank you!

luv, Karen

What a neat Christmas tree. Love all the beads you strung on it and that tree skirt is wonderful. This reminds me of decorating the tree when I was growing up. I can remember stringing popcorn for ours too. Such a pretty setting.

That little 4 year old sounds like a kick in the pants! So special to have memories like this. His little rocks in front of Karens village piece was so cute too.

Your tree is lovely, Kirk.
You will always remember finding your son sitting there looking at the tree.
