Look there is a Christmas Tree!

A Variety of Tree Pics.......Enjoy!

I have some closeups of the special ornaments of the kids. They receive an ornament each year that signifies something from that particular year. Example on the tree you can notice a soccer guy ornament (probably more than one) for Connor, A graduation year one for Taylor and a ballerina from way back that is Carley's. They will get to take them with them when they move out of the house and have their own home-I hope they will always look back a remember what each one meant. This year I am giving Taylor an ornament that looks like a pair of flip-flops (she wears them except when it is really cold), Carley's is a driver's license ornament and Connor's is a soccer cleat with his soccer team's name on it.
Some of the pics are kinda funky lighting-was experimenting with my camera and thought they turned out interesting. Could I be getting creative??? That would be a good thing!
So enjoy our Oh Christmas Tree!

Trying to Keep Imagining!

Oh its so pretty! The ornament thing is a great idea. Maybe next year we will start a tradition like that. I think it's great.

The pics are interesting. It's weird how lighting comes out on camera!

LOVE the tree! We also have special ornaments every year, and I think I have one very similar to the snowflake one that you have with Bre's pic when she was about 6 or 7 in it. she hates it. LOL

Your tree is lovely, Tracy. It is even more special because it holds so many beautiful reminders of your memories.

I was just catching up in some of your posts and it sounds like you are going in the right direction. Even though things are tough, you sound somewhat encouraged and that is always a good thing.

Keep working on yourself and rediscovering what makes YOU happy, Tracy. You deserve to feel contented and peaceful in yourself. Don't ever allow anyone to bring you down.

Big hugs,

I LOVE the tree! I did the same thing for my kids and gave them their ornaments last year and started new this year. You're doing great Tracy---proud of you!
