Holiday Traditions!

I love the Christmas tree.  Each year I decorate it with beautiful ornaments that have wonderful and special meanings.  Some that remind me of the true meaning of Christmas; some that family has given to me; some that are just simply lovely - but all of them together give me a wonderful, warm feeling. 
One of my absolutely favorite things to do is to grab a cup of coffee, turn out all the lights except those on the tree and snuggle under a fleece blanket on the couch - just enjoying the tree's beauty.  Here it is with the lights out.
One other tradition we have is a family picture each year - so I thought I'd share ours from this year -
Back row: Aaron, Paul, Jenee  Middle row: Heidi, Me holding Zamarah, Prince, Paisley   Front row: Kamili, Zavian and Makai.  Aren't they all wonderful!
