Blogmas 2014 - Day 17 Christmas Tree Reveal

First, I want to apologize for this going up so late today.  I am not feeling very well this morning and have been kind of out of it, so I put off taking the photos of the tree until about 30 minutes ago.

I finally have them and now I'm ready for the Christmas Tree Reveal.  I'm sure some of you will be doing your Christmas in your home country posts today because of the confusion yesterday, but that is fine, I'm looking forward to reading them nonetheless :)

I snapped this one from upstairs, looking down.....

The star on top is driving me completely bonkers, I keep setting it straight and it keeps leaning, I've given up.

You can tell that I am not into perfectionist trees or themed trees.  My tree is a mismatch of all the ornaments my children have made for us over the years, or chosen every year.  My husband and I usually put the lights on but the kids decorate on their own, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Some ornaments hold a very dear place in my heart.

Christmas Tree

Christmas Tree

I truly believe that a Christmas tree should reflect who we are and our families, and I think mine does that.

Beautiful tree Sandra, leaning star and all!! I call my tree my memory tree because most of the ornaments have a memory attached to them. I like it that way.

Pretty tree! Ours too is a mismatch of handmade ornaments and the kids' ornaments from each year. It is the perfect way to do a tree. This is the first year, we have had no glass bulbs on the tree because there has been no room :)

Lovely tree! I so agree that it should reflect who you are as a family. I know ours is year's worth of favorites.

Beautiful tree. My tree is decorated the same. No theme, just lots of ornaments that the kids have picked out or made. That makes it the best tree of all. I hope you feel better soon.

Hope you are soon feeling much better dear Sandra.

Your tree is lovely, filled with lots of love & happy memories. That's the best kind. The lopsided star only makes it lovelier.

Have a wonderful Christmas week and day ~ FlowerLady

I love your tree and the whole area around it. So picturesque, even with the leaning star. Trees with themes are very beautiful, but I want my tree, much like yours. A theme of family, memories, and just a theme of us over the years.
