O Tannenbaum. . .
Wie treu sind deine Blätter.
Sorry, that song is stuck in my head. : )
I lived in Germany when I was a little girl for a few years and we would sing
"O, Christmas tree" in german every year.
So, I can't help but sing it every year when we decorate our tree, hence the title of this post. ; )
I really like the traditional Christmas colors and toyed with the idea of doing more of a "theme" tree this year and somewhat tried too but I still had to include some of my favorite ornaments.
So, I guess you could say it's a "hodpodge themed" tree.
Here is how she turned out.
I do need to get one more spool of ribbon to finish my garland.
and just a couple shots of some of our ornaments. . .
and my most favorite ornament, ever.
Maddie made this in kindergarten.
They painted their little hands white, stamped them onto the ornament and made their little fingers into snowmen. I love this ornament and now when Maddie holds it, her hand covers the entire thing. So, that makes it even more special to me now.
Lastly, a quick shot of Miss Maddie decorating it. : )
Is your tree up and decorated yet?
