Christmas Decorations

Here's our Christmas decor. I hope you like them.  

One of my gifts from Annah last year.
Rough collies are my top favorite dog breed.

No tinsel this year.

One of my new ornaments this year.

My beautiful silver star. I haven't been able to find it for 2 years, and Annah found it this time. Thanks, Annah!

Our fireplace mantle
This year we put our Nativity scene on our piano.

"Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw
His star in the east and have come to worship Him."
Matthew 2:2

"Pilate also wrote an inscription and put it on the cross. It was written,
'JESUS THE NAZARENE, THE KING OF THE JEWS'... So the chief priests
of the Jews were saying to Pilate, 'Do not write, 'The King of the Jews';
but that He said,'I am King of the Jews.''
Pilate answered, 'What I have written I have written.' "
John 19:19-22 


  1. Such a beautiful tree, and I love that your ornaments carry so much love and history! I can tell that your family loves decorating your home for special occasions.

  2. Your tree is beautiful! It must take a long time to decorate with all of those ornaments, but Christmas trees are such a culmination of family tradition. We purchase a special ornament every year to add to our collection (and write the year on the bottom so we remember!). And each year we decorate a little differently, but all of those special ornaments go on. I hope your family has a very Merry Christmas!

    1. Your house looks lovely!

    2. Thank you. Each year since we were little, Mom lets Annah and I choose a new ornament or two. We know that the true meaning of Christmas is Jesus Christ, but we like and enjoy our tree. Mom finds such nice decorations. She's the one who added the flowers and such to the mantle wreath.

  3. Your tree is really pretty!

  4. Your tree is absolutely lovely. Wishing you and your family a joyful Christmas.
    All the best, Linda - Tampa FL.
