The Memory Tree

Holiday decorating in the land of SWEET PEA means simple in tones of white, cream, silver and brown. But there is one tree that is very different... Colorful... Special... Full of memories... I call it the MEMORY TREE.

You see, it is the tree that holds all the hand-made ornaments from the childhood of my two sons, one now 30 and the other soon to be 29. I have kept every single one they ever made and I treasure them beyond words. Thus, they get their own special little tree.

The MEMORY TREE...

Aww...I love it...those sweet childhood memories! I have my adult children's decorations of long ago still on my tree too! They are in the back...but I love to take them out and remember those days...I couldn't get away with NOT putting them on!

I have several boxes of things in the closet that hold all my childrens art work. One house were we lived, I had both walls going down the hall full of their art! Haven't looked at the stuff in a while! Great idea honoring them with a tree!
