Decorating the Christmas Tree

Our Christmas Tree 2010
Our family enjoys decorating our tree every Christmas.  We have collected ornaments from around the world and always add the homemade wonders our children produce.  We spend an evening getting all the ornaments in place, wrapping the whole thing in gold netting and adding the star to the tip-tip-top.  One of my favorite ornaments is a large roughly hewn nail, representative of the nails driven into the hands of Jesus as he was crucified on a cross.  One of the boys places the nail at the bottom of the tree, the base of all other ormanents we add.  It's a favorite time of the year for me, having my boys with me, singing Christmas songs, drinking hot cocoa and decorating our house to reflect the joy of the season.
