Our "Family Tree"

Disclosure: If you make a purchase through the links posted below, I may receive a small compensation. Read the full disclosure.

As I mentioned the other day, I decided to do two trees this year. For my traditional “family” tree, I decorated it with a mixture of ornaments I have collected over the years and my Grandma’s antique ornaments. Also, my husband and I buy a Christmas ornament each time we go on vacation. Instead of bringing home a t-shirt or something that will never get used, we buy ornaments that we get to display every year. Plus, it is always fun to pull out the ornaments each year and remember the vacation memories we had from that trip. And, it is fairly inexpensive. Sometimes it is difficult to find Christmas ornaments. We had trouble finding them in Cabo and St. Lucia. But in both places, we ended up finding very cool ornaments at little shops at the airport. So don’t worry about searching every shop on your trip. The stores at the airport always come through!

I have always wondered what people did with their special ornaments if they only had a theme tree. So tell me, what do you do? And where do you get your favorite ornaments from?

    I know Bryan is from Wisconsin so I would imagine his "family tree" has a few less branches.
