I shared Christmas Tree-- Pt. 1 with you yesterday.
Here we are today taking another look at our tree.
First, we have to start with our Angel. Isn't She lovely-ish?
I made her our first Christmas together as a married couple. We needed something for the top of our tree and I quickly sewed up this lovely lady with scraps of fabric I had laying around.
Each year we put her on top laughing at what a strange-looking Angel she is. We've actually been on a 6 year hunt for a Star to grace the top of our tree. A very specific star, mind you. One that only my husband can identify as being the right star. We look every year for a star that fits just the right description-- but so far have not found anything that meets his requirements. So each year, our Angel takes her place.
Anyone know a good place to find a Star?
One of the traditions I REALLY love from my husband's family is the idea that each child gets an ornament that signifies something important from the last year. I love that idea, it makes each ornament so meaningful.
Here's some of my favorites:

Isn't that a fun tradition?
The ornaments are passed out two days before Christmas.
