One of my favorite Christmas traditions is when the grandchildren decorate our tree. It all began about 24 years ago when I allowed the first born grandchild to "softly" touch the ornaments. Each year after that, she "helped" us place some of the ornaments on the tree. As the years passed, other grandchildren came to "help." We have Christmas music playing, and I serve warm apple cider and Christmas cookies.

Sure, some ornaments get broken, but I never scolded as none were as valuable as the child who had let it slip.

Two of our grandchildren, Brittany and Jenna, came over this past week to do our tree; each brought her fiance/husband. I had way too much fun to remember to take pictures, but later, I took these shots of our few Blue ornaments.















Our tree is a hodge-podge of ornaments. I call our tree a "memory tree" because each ornament has a story connected to it.



Is your Christmas tree a memory tree?


Happy Blue Monday!
