Santas. . .our kid's pictures, names and handprints all over the tree. . .

  1. Love your tree!! These are the best kind--full of little precious memories of a blessed life.

  2. Memory trees are the best. I haven't decorated one thing inside. Not feeling strongly motivated but I will get my rear in gear soon!
