I wanted to feature Houston places for this round of Alphabe-Thursday, but I didn't have time this week and probably won't have time next week to ride around and take pictures, so I decided to share a little of our Christmas with you.
We haven't had a normal Christmas in while. In 2012 my husband died and my son was in the hospital for Christmas that year. Last year we had just moved into this house. So, I wanted to get out my Christmas decorations and decorate! I have a lot of sentimental things.
I don't have a Christmas tree. I have a Memory Tree filled with things the kids made, ornaments that have special meaning to us, pictures of the kids with Santa, and even some things that I made as a child and my mother saved.
The tree us full! It would be difficult to find an empty space to hang anything else.
Another family tradition is the Christmas count down calendar. I made this when the kids were little.
The day after Christmas some people here put their live trees down at the curb. I've never had much luck with a live tree here. They dry out so quickly.
Now head over to Jenny's blog for a list of this week's Alphabe-Thursday participants. Thank you for visiting and MERRY CHRISTMAS!
