December 16th – Christmas tree reveal!

Hah! I’ve been trying and trying to take a decent photo of all of our tree but it’s too big and won’t let me! So, here’s a little snapshot…


It looks kind of a mess in the photo! A rumble jumble of raggedy tagged mis-matched baubles, a riot of disorganisation, tinsel pulled awry as the littles ogle the baubles, red streamers alighting on some branches, from dances around and around in the twinkly fairy lights. It’s a mess. A loved-up mess of history and happiness and laughter and a few tears. I love it. We love it. It’s so us: a mess but getting there. Slowly but surely. What’s important is that its loved, its played with, its enjoyed. And it’s certainly that!

    It may be a “loved-up mess” but it is a great family tree! A “happy” tree, as Chelsea commented! I LOVE your “loved-up mess” of a tree – definitely reminds me of ours when the kids were growing up!! I’ll get mine posted later today! Thanks for sharing.

    I don’t see a mess..I see the very best kind of tree there is: just full of special things to exclaim over (and that’s why it’s so hard to photograph!) It’s perfect

    It’s perfect! To me a mismatch of baubles & decorations is how it’s meant to be done 🙂

      Hia! Yeah, that’s the beauty of it! All our own histories and stories, right there on the tree! [I think I may write a story about that; it’s sparked my imagination, for sure!]
