It gets decorated

After going up to Mt Hood to get out wild Christmas Tree, we decorated it. I love this time of the year.  I like having our tree and the lights.

DSC_0003-smallGrowing up in Chile, South of the Equator, we had a summer Christmas.  Though I have beautiful memories, they are very different from what I’ve experienced in these past 18 years, of winter holidays.

DSC_0006-smallHaving Santa walking in the beach with shorts, a red short-sleeve jacket, and a hat, wasn’t the typical Santa I had seen in photos.

Even though I have my own little summer Santa these days… Lucas wearing shorts and t-shirts since June, and now he’s been wearing this Santa hat most days… takes me back and I love it!


Each year we tell the stories again as we remember them.   These are the ornaments Siena and Lucas made for three years in a row, to give to grandparents and for us to keep.  It’s fun to find them each year.DSC_0009-small DSC_0010-small DSC_0012-small

And each year, I also give each an ornament to add to their collection, remembering something special from that year.DSC_0015-small DSC_0016-small DSC_0017-small DSC_0021-small DSC_0022-small DSC_0024-small DSC_0025-small DSC_0029-smallThough a little blurry, I love their face expressions… my favorite time of the year!

    Hola Mama. Gracias. Si, el arbolito se ve super lindo. Si, vamos a tener que hacer mas estrellitas a crochet.
    No, la perrita es prestada no mas, es de un amigo que la estabamos cuidando por una semana. Es super tierna y linda. Asi la gozamos tambien.
