Christmas Countdown: Family Christmas Tree Wrap-Up

My family Christmas tree isn't going to win any beauty contest.  Admittedly, it's a hodge podge.  And we love it!

I have ornaments, both hand-made and store bought, adorning the tree.  Some of them my kids made.  Some, I made as a kid.

Every ornament has a story.  Every thing around the tree does too.

My parents got a nativity scene in 1965 as a wedding gift.  I ended up with it in 2000 and have put it on display every year since.  This is it's 49th Christmas.

The hand-crafted pink pigs got added to the scene in it's 46th year.

This light-up and working scene of the ice rink at Rockefeller Center in Manhattan relives a memory from the season in 2000 when the Platt family visited and my daughter, Natasha, skated out on the ice.

This wraps up a week of family Christmas tree stories.  Enjoy.  And Merry Christmas!
