Our Red & White Tree…

Our tree is finally up & decorated…and this was no small feat!
It was really hard to find an evening where everyone was home so we could do this together as a family.
The children have hockey or skating almost every night of the week….so scheduling something is a little tricky.
This year, for the first time ever, we are having a red & white tree.
{We have had variations of  a blue tree for years.}
We love it as a fresh change.
And it didn’t become a ‘Dr. Seuss Who-ville Tree’ as planned.
The director, Hunter, decide she liked lots of snowflakes on our little tree.
Today I am packaging gifts, making cookies and a homemade soup for a girlfriend who lost her mother this week.
{It is so sad to lose a loved one before Christmas}
I plan to deliver  a care package to her tomorrow that will include homemade soup, bread, brownies and a few other goodies.
Wishing you a wonderful Saturday!

    Love your tree. You are a great lady Angie doing that for your neighbour, your right it isn't easy losing someone around the Holidays but people like you are angels in disguise. Merry Christmas! XO

    Hi Angie,
    You sound like a wonderful friend to have. It is very sad to lose a loved one close to Christmas, but sadly it does happen.
    Your tree is beautiful! I love the red and white and the curly ribbon cascading down from the top, gorgeous!
    It's hard to believe that Edmonton doesn't hardly have any snow either.
    Have a wonderful day.
