Kelly from Exceptionalistic, Becky from Tales of Beauty for Ashes, and I are now seven days into our 12 Days of Christmas series.  You can follow the tag "12 Days of Christmas 2012" by clicking HERE. Today is about scripture.  Today we are sharing pictures-only posts showing off our Christmas trees!  Enjoy and please link up your posts about your Christmas trees as well!  We would love to see them.

If you are looking for my Thankful Thursday post for today, you can find that right over HERE!



This angel sits atop our tree. Purchased at the "Nutcracker Market" in Houston, TX many years ago.

This cardinal was purchased at The Smithsonian in Washington, DC a few years ago.

One of a few Notre Dame  ornaments on our tree.  My husband is a 1994 grad of Notre Dame.

Gold leaf purchased on our trip to California around 2003 {bought it at the gift shop at Muir Woods}.

Hot air balloon ornament purchased on a family trip to Albequerque, NM {bought in the Sandia Peak gift shop at the top of Sandia Peak}.

Piper ornament in honor of my Scottish heritage {on my mother's side}.
Our son Jeffrey's first Christmas ornament.  Purchased not long before he was stillborn in 2001.

This ornament was purchased for Christmas 2001 after we lost Jeffrey.
One of many ornaments handmade by my former boss in Houston, TX.  This is the 2012 installment.  I am very fortunate to still be receiving these 4 years after leaving Houston!
