Oh Christmas Tree (Through the Years)

season's greetings

Oh Christmas Tree

A Christmas tree has always been one of my favorite treasures of Christmas. I think a Christmas tree, especially light up is one of the most beautiful things in the world. I’d like to invite you to come on a journey with me as I reflect on my Christmas trees through the years and how my life has evolved from Christmases past until now. Blessings to you and enjoy.

CHRISTMAS 2007

This was our first Christmas tree in the United States. We lived with my mother-in-law at this time. This is our first real Christmas tree as a family. It’s the biggest tree I’ve ever had. This is the first and so far last time we used sprinkled fake snow on and under our Christmas tree. I loved it.

Our daughter (our first born) was 1 year old. This would be her second Christmas.

Lost my 2008 pics. Very Upsetting!

Don’t know how He did it, but God managed to give us a wonderful Christmas, despite our family’s incredible lost a little over a month prior. He sent a family who were very good to us that Christmas and for many years to come. Still to this day.

See those two collage picture frames on both sides of the tree. Those are all pictures of our son Kaiden, who died the year before. Those photos were taken the year he died.

A Christmas tree is most magical when it is all lit up, but I haven’t been able to capture its beauty and essence with my camera as yet. I wish this photo reflected what I was really seeing.

CHRISTMAS 2013

Another blessed Christmas! This year my daughter was 7 years old and my first born son was 4 years old. This year we welcomed a new addition to our family-my firecracker son (4th born child, third born son). This was his first Christmas and he was 6 months old.
