Our Red & White Tree...

Pin It Now!
Our tree is finally up & decorated...and this was no small feat!
It was really hard to find an evening where everyone was home so we could do this together as a family.
The children have hockey or skating almost every night of the week....so scheduling something is a little tricky.
This year, for the first time ever, we are having a red & white tree.
{We have had variations of  a blue tree for years.}
We love it as a fresh change.
And it didn't become a 'Dr. Seuss Who-ville Tree' as planned.
The director, Hunter, decide she liked lots of snowflakes on our little tree.


Today I am packaging gifts, making cookies and a homemade soup for a girlfriend who lost her mother this week.
{It is so sad to lose a loved one before Christmas}
I plan to deliver  a care package to her tomorrow that will include homemade soup, bread, brownies and a few other goodies.

Wishing you a wonderful Saturday!

It looks wonderful, Angie! I remember trying to work getting the tree into everyone's schedules once they got a bit older. Very difficult to do! We used to go and pick out a live tree ever year.

Hi Angie,

Love your Red & White Christmas tree! The curly ribbons coming down from the top are really neat..
The snowflakes look great as well as presents under the tree!
Have a great week ahead!
All the Best,
Christine

Hi Angie,
You sound like a wonderful friend to have. It is very sad to lose a loved one close to Christmas, but sadly it does happen.
Your tree is beautiful! I love the red and white and the curly ribbon cascading down from the top, gorgeous!
It's hard to believe that Edmonton doesn't hardly have any snow either.
Have a wonderful day.
