Things Christmas

 A few blogs ago, I showed a picture of the Christmas tree ready for decorating.  Here is a picture of it all done.  We always have so much fun putting the ornaments on the tree.  Several are handmade.  I try to add a couple of new ornaments to the tree every year that I have made.  We tend to laugh a lot while putting up the decorations.  I have little picture frames with photo's of the kids in them.  There is always a competition to see who can hang their picture front and center!!!
 I started the tradition a few years ago of having a chocolate christmas tree.  This tree is very popular and I am expected to do it every year.  I go to World Market and buy fine German Chocolate which is then hung on the tree.  Nobody is allowed to take a chocolate until Christmas day.  Then it is fair game and you may help yourself.  Hmmm, quiet delicious.
A little corner decorated with St Nick himself and two reindeer made from wire and beads which come from South Africa.
It is my aim to post a few more Christmas vignettes over the next few days.
Thank you for stopping by to take a look.  I hope your decorating is going well.
