Here is our Christmas tree - we always have a live tree. In our 27 years of marriage we have never had a fake tree although there have been years I would have liked to have a fake one. I suppose it's because Rick has a BA in Forestry! Every year the kids get a new ornament until they are 18 years old. Ryan's ornaments are Soldiers, Kevin's are Teddy Bears, Jesse's are Snowmen and Leslie has Angels. Heather has Ballerinas, but I gave them to her after she got married. Each child will take them to use in their own homes and I hope it will bring back happy memories of Christmas's as a child at home.
