I don't have any pictures of a Christmas tree, because of traveling we decided not to put one up. I do miss our long decision when we go out for the search for the perfect tree, I miss the smell, I miss plugging it in every night. It is definitely worth it, though. This trip is a dream come true. I have to go work on Christmas cards.

The thirteenth day of Christmas
OK--I said that the Nativity set was my favorite decoration. This one is my favorite, too. It is a lifesize snowman. I had it on our porch, but with this weather it kept blowing down. I remember one Christmas telling my daughter I liked this decoration. She must have told Santa because that Christmas it was next to our Christmas tree. I love when Santa listens to my wishes. The sugar houses I started collecting last year. I didn't realize how many I found this year, but I have a pretty good collection already. Some are vintage and my best buy was a small vintage one for $3.00. The tree was an engagement gift which after being married for 26 years I guess I could call it vintage. Two different people made me trees for an engagement gift. They mean the world to me, I know how much time goes into making something like that and when I put it out each Christmas I think of them.
