My Christmas Tree

I always put my Christmas tree up before Thanksgiving because it has all the fall and
Thanksgiving colors in the tree ornaments. I've been collecting my ornaments for years
so when I mention where I got them it was some time ago. I usually add one or two
new ones every year.
From NM in the store.

All the little butterflies from Saks in their Christmas shop.

This crown ornament is new this year from NM Glories shop.

"Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when
he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life that God
has promised to those who love him."
James 1:12 NIV

Some ornaments are very photogenic.

A hidden Mickey from Disney World.

My tree is from Costco.

Santa was a catalog find.

My Christmas tree matches the colors of
my living and dining room.

I'm still on a break. I will be back regularly after the first of the year. 
 I hope you all had a very
Happy Thanksgiving.

Glad to see you back all be it temporarily.

Your tree is lovely and puts mine to shame. No matter, everything seems to be bigger in the States. I have done the same as you and added to my Christmas decorations at the rate of about 3 new ones per year.

Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving.

Dearest Sizzle and Zoom,

Don't know why several of your photos will not load, your header is not showing either...
Your Christmas tree is gorgeous. Also because it's all in gold. For me any tree that is not in loud and different colors is a winner!
Very tastful.
Wishing you a very joyeus Christmas season and sending you love,

Hi, again :) Lates last night, it suddenly stop working this translator on my blog...
So strange.. I have mailed the producer..

So now I have added the ordinary google translate too, so maybe you will get the chance to translate the poem now. I will let both translators stay until I know whats going on..

Have a nice day :) Hugs :)
