Christmas tree post....just for Julia :-)

As this Friday falls on Christmas day I wont be posting my usual Friday Smile post and this morning I saw Julia had posted pics of her Christmas tree with the request that we did the same.  :-)
......of course I'm more than happy to oblige.

My tree decorating always involves lots of smiles because our daughter Amy has always loved decorating it and now brings her three little munchkins with her to 'help'.

Here they all are posing for me each with a decoration at the ready.

There is always much laughter, fun and giggles at all the things that go on Nanny's tree because each one comes with a memory....who made it, where did that come from etc etc.

We have many little knitted Santas that hang on the tree...they were all knitted by my mum from the same pattern but each one is different and every year they make me children grew up living with an ageing Grandma with alzheimer's and all that went with it but this taught them lots about life so we all smile at her Santas.....happy memories.

Here is an action shot for you....little Lulu likes to come each year with her Elf hat on [she's so like her mummy :-)].  Even Rocky has photo bombed the pic.....looking rather scruffy at the mo but is going to have his hair cut tomorrow ready for Christmas.

So there you go Julia...that my tree.  It's very heavily decorated at the bottom [because that's where they can reach], it has no colour scheme at all, there are many very old glass baubles on it and lots and lots of memories......AND I LOVE IT  :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

Hoping everyone has a wonderful Christmas if you don't come back before the big day and 2016 find you all happy and healthy.
Annie xxxx

There's something magical about everyone helping decorate the tree (I'm sure Dad used to wait till we'd gone to bed and "tidy" it up...) and I so miss having room for a tree... maybe next year if I have a darn good sort out in 2016 (much chance of that happening, been saying it for years!)
