I never do a specific theme or color scheme for our family room tree...just whatever I like or what we've collected over the years.
My favorite part is the topper. A few years ago we moved into this house with taller ceilings and the tree looked skimpy. I used feathers and branches from the top up to make it look taller. Looks a bit like something exploded up there, but I like it!
One of my faves...fluffy fat red birds.
Sunday School crafts
This is a fantastic idea...a story-telling nativity glove. The kids' kindergarten Sunday School teacher made this for us. It's a black glove with animals on the thumb, Mary and Joseph and Baby Jesus on the pointer, and the Wise Men on the 3 last fingers. Do you see their gifts they are bringing (oops, looks like we lost one!)? And the star that they followed is on the palm. Thanks Miss Stacie!
This Moses basket would never sell in a garage sale...and then I was glad! I use it under the tree for Baby Jesus' "manger" to help us remember that He is the real gift at Christmas.
Enjoy your weekend friends. I hope to finish my Christmas shopping! What are your plans?
