Christmas Keepsakes and Memories

 We finally got our Nativity up today. I love it.

I'm still in the process of decorating and trimming our tree. I don't put up nearly as much as I used to. 

My tree is a tall skinny one, which I find hard to decorate. The limbs don't stick out far enough. I've got a variety of ornaments - lots of them home made and all sizes.

Here are three things that are important to me. The old Santa hat belonged to my mom. She always wore it on Christmas. Now I wear it. The ceramic angel belonged to my mother in law and the white crocheted snowflake was made by my cousin, Vera.

This Christmas card is very special. I found it in my dad's things after he died. Grandma and Grandpa sent it to him and my mom in 1947, the first Christmas my mom and dad was married. I love it. I display it every Christmas.

These are just a few of my Christmas keepsakes. 

One of my special memories is Charley proposing to me and giving me a ring on Christmas Eve in 1977.

Do you have any special keepsakes or memories of Christmas?



  1. Every single ornament on our tree has significance, mostly related to a child or grandchild and now great grandchildren. But the oldest is a gauzy little two inch angel that was my husband's mom's. Hope your holiday is merry and bright.

    1. That's sweet, Linda. Sometimes the littlest things mean the most. Merry Christmas.

  2. You have some very special memories. The tree and your decorations are beautiful. I hope you and yours had a Merry Christmas and will have a Happy New Year!

  3. Christmas is such a special time to stroll down memory lane. I always enjoy decorating my tree. The last few years I have been doing different themes. :)

    Happy New Year!
