There are so many special ornaments you can add to your tree, from capturing this year's special events to starting an annual tradition. These keepsake ornaments would be a great addition to your family's tree!

we put our tree up last weekend!  We went out and cut it down ourselves and it was decorated by sunday.  So always right after Thanksgiving.

When I was a little girl, my family always put the tree up after we got home from Thanksgiving family dinner. But in my house now, we do it whenever mommy isn't abt to drop dead of exhaustion! lol

 We do indeed put up a Christmas tree every year, otherwise Santa might think we didn't want presents. Although I love real trees, this year we will use the artificial tree .. broke the ankle and wheeling around in the wheelchair is just too impractical.  Waiting for the kiddo to get home from his college Christmas break so he can do the heavy lifting. Yes we pick out special ornaments and they will eventually be used for their Christmas trees when they have their own places. 

Luv this Hallmark ornament , it will  be used as the package topper for a friend's daughter's  package.

Those keepsake ornaments are very nice.

Sometimes we put up a tree, sometimes we don't, once in while we get a real one.  We don't get special ornaments, but my mom has a tree full of them.
