O Christmas Tree




Products Used~ CTMH CS, SS. Holiday Trinkets~ DP My Minds Eye Penny Lane, SU Border Scallop Punch,  Ink Ponderosa Pine, Bling Stars.

Are you ready for Christmas?  My boys are counting the days.
When i made this card i could not think up a title, and i really didn't want to add one to the card. When i posted it, some titles came to  me, such as "Wonder" and "O Christmas Tree"  So I found the lyrics and thought i would post them....  Sing along. : )
We are pretty much ready for Christmas day. We are doing things a little  different this year. Stepping out of our usual Christmas Tradition.... Mark & Christyl and the grandkids usually come here Christmas morning, we open gifts together and have a nice breakfast. Well, this year we're going to their house. How fun!
 As a kid we always had Christmas on Christmas morning. We never celerbrated  on Christmas  Eve. Mark & Christyl celebrate with his family  Christmas Eve.
Anyway, I probably won't be back with a card or page anytime soon, so I thought i would leave you with a pic our our tree. This past weekend we painted that side of our livingroom and put our tree up. Micah was so excited, just waiting for the painting to be done. He's the one reaching.
Enjoy!

 O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!

Thy leaves are so unchanging;
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging;
Not only green when summer's here,
But also when 'tis cold and drear.
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging!

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Much pleasure thou can'st give me;
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Much pleasure thou can'st give me;
How often has the Christmas tree
Afforded me the greatest glee!
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Much pleasure thou can'st give me.

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy candles shine so brightly!
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy candles shine so brightly!
From base to summit, gay and bright,
There's only splendor for the sight.
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy candles shine so brightly!

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
How richly God has decked thee!
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
How richly God has decked thee!
Thou bidst us true and faithful be,
And trust in God unchangingly.
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
How richly God has decked thee! !"


Merry Christmas To All & Have a Blessed New Year!
