O Christmas Tree!

Christmas 2008 was a fine Christmas by any standard. The only negative is that CaJenn and CaJon were not here to share it with us. This is the first Christmas that CaJenn has not made it home for the holiday and we missed her but understand the progress of life.

Rather than go through the activities of the day, I thought you might like to see some of the ornaments that hang on our tree. The ornaments represent different aspects of our lives and it's fun to look at them all and remember their significance.

This one is from my parents tree. It probably dates to the late 1940's and it's the earliest ornament I can remember as a child.

Then there are these two that are also my parents. They were bought when we were stationed in Italy in the mid 1950's.

Gotta have a fishing ornament!

Cowboy stuff too.

A new one this year in honor of The Bride's graduations.

Favorite places.

And don't forget the RV!

These are just a few. Every year it's like a walk down memory lane when we look at the tree.

Tomorrow, The Bride and I, and Guitar and Pic-E are going to see the musical Jersey Boys at a theater in downtown Denver. We're all looking forward to it as we can all remember the music of Franki Valli and The Four Seasons. Before the show we'll grab a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants in the area.................Life is good.

Thanks for visiting.

Glad you had an enjoyable Christmas. Love the boot and hat ornaments. We don't put up a Christmas tree anymore or haven't for years. May get artificial on sale for next year. I have lots of homemade ornaments that I've made over the years.
Have fun at the Jersey Boys musical, that would be a blast.

You all enjoy the Jersey Boys...sounds like a fun night out!

Also love the Christmas tree ornaments...They are very pretty!
Got our tree down today and all put away till next year! It is all crochet balls, angels and snowflakes with a huge crochet star at the top with white lights. I think it is beautiful!
