A BIG Christmas tree once again!

One of the many things we always took for granted before moving to Luxembourg was a Christmas tree over 5 feet tall. With this being our first Christmas since moving back to the U.S., it was fun to actually go pick out a BIG Christmas tree once again. In addition to getting our tree, we were able to take out and put on the tree all of the Christmas ornaments that we collected during our time in Europe from all of the amazing places that we were fortunate to have visited. It was fun to remember all of the fun times and this will continue to be a fun tradition for us each year.

What a beautiful tree! And how fun to put your ornament collection on it. I love ornaments - how each one is a memory.

Our tree was pretty big this year. Maybe 7 -8 feet. We bought it at Cactus Hobbi. We usually go for shorter trees, but they were all misshapen. The larger one just happened to be better shaped - so we chose it. Just took it down on Sunday. Got your xmas card today. Really nice and wonderful pictures!
