O Christmas Tree

Each year we love going to a  Christmas Farm and cut down a tree.
It has became a family tradition, that we look forward to.

Afterwards, we enjoy a nice lunch togetherthen upon returning to home, we decorate the tree; while
playing Christmas music and drinking hot chocolate. 

The girls decorated the tree , O it may not be magazine worthy...but to me it is perfect.
It's done by little hands, that have a very special place in my heart.  It's perfect!

The white roping was made by myself and the girls, we took white yard and crochet long chains in the place of ribbons.   We are a little short, we need to crochet some more.  I like the idea of adding a little homemade touch to the tree.

I love these kinds of slow days in the middle of a busy Christmas season.  We try to keep Christmas simple and make it special with family time and traditions that will stay with our little girls forever.

It's about Jesus, it's about giving.

Act 20:35 I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.

Have a wonderful weekend with your family.

From our little farmhouse.


  1. A lovely tree, and a lovely tradition.
    We are setting out Nativities, snowmen and santas,
    changing wreaths and getting ready for trees (I'm doing 4 this year).
    Only one will be real, but we will get it from a tree farm 2 miles up
    the highway from us.
    Happy December! (once it gets here, lol)
