About six years ago, we started getting a extra little Christmas tree to put in the family room, in addition to our big Christmas tree that goes into the living room in front of the house. The tree is adorned with silver balls and a silver sterling star tree topper. My favorite part is the ornaments which are picture frames with black and white photos of each member of our family. It starts with our great grand parents, to our parents, to us and our children, our siblings and their children, and last but not least, our grand-children. It even has some of the pets we have had throughout the years. I would like to add our aunts, uncles and their children to the tree someday. I have to tell you, it is a process finding small enough faces to fit into the small picture frames (I have not learned how to shrink a picture to fit... should probably learn).
When we gather for the Christmas holiday, I've noticed everyone gravitates to the family tree. Right now, it is a five year generation tree and with time, our little tree will grow as our family does.
I look forward every year to put this tree up!
