Christmas has made an appearance at our house. Not done decorating but do I have “my” tree up. Every year we put a live tree in the family room decorated with ornaments from our travels and other special or handmade ones from my children’s gifts and projects through the years. However, when they were little I began to put up a tree that was stylized. Faux and decked with fancier ornaments and theme it occupies one of the more formal areas of the house each year.
