Christmas Tree Tour 2010


Where did we leave off?
Ah yes, the Christmas tree!

After the lights were put on the tree, a strand of candle lights
are added for an old-world touch.

Next, strands of wooden cranberries.

The angel comes out of her box to adorn the top of the tree.

Add all the ornaments and...

Our Tree 2010

I created a video that shows a lot of our ornaments.
The music is a fantastic Christmas medley played by the
local concert band at a live concert we attended a few years back.
Click the picture below to watch the video on YouTube.

Here are some of our ornaments shown in the video.
Of course, we have a fair share of cat ornaments!

And other animals besides cats. We're both big animal lovers!

Of course, the tree would not be complete
without the angels.

Some ornaments are mementoes of special days
in our lives.

And some are just for fun!

I hope you enjoyed the tour of our 2010 Christmas Tree.

Here's wishing you all a beautiful Christmas
filled with love and good cheer!

Hi Rose-

I'm glad you enjoyed the video!

To post a video on YouTube, you need to sign up for a free account. After that, if you can get your video onto your computer, it's easy to upload to YouTube. I also have some video editing software, which is great for doing special effects and adding music and titles.

Have a very Merry Christmas!

Hi Gwen-

Thank you! There comes a point when you accumulate too many ornaments. Some just stay in the boxes and never go on the tree anymore! :-)

How very lovely your tree is. It looks like you will have a white Christmas, the mall is beautiful. I always seem to get yellowy photos do you get such white photos. Georgeous Pam.

I am so impressed with your video. What a great way to show your tree! Everything is so pretty, but I think I love the angel the most. She just looks so ... angelic I guess. Have a Merry Christmas!

Hi Marcie-

Thanks! I have a setting on my camera for indoor shots. I think it helps remove the yellow tint, but I try to use daylight as often as possible because the quality is so much nicer! :-)

Hi Pam-

Thank you! I love my angel, too. I waited a few years before putting anything at the top of my tree and when I found her at the store years ago, I knew she was just what I'd been waiting for! :-)

Merry Christmas to you!
