Decorating the Christmas Tree

It was time to decorate the Christmas tree once again and this year, we let Gavin select the color of the ornaments.  We usually do a red and silver tree, but Gavin's favorite color is blue, so it was a "Blue Christmas" in the Rogers household.  (It was kind of symbolic since my mom would always play Loretta Lynn's "Country Christmas" record during Christmastime when I was a child and "Blue Christmas" was one of my favorite songs.)  I didn't really get a chance to take many pictures during the decorating process since I was busy putting hooks on ornaments and keeping Jaxon entertained while Matt and Gavin decorated the tree.

Gavin insisted on hanging two blue ornaments together because he said they were "friends."  This provided us with quite a bit of entertainment.  Nothing says "Merry Christmas" like a pair of blue balls dangling from a Christmas tree.

Gavin got to put the star on top of the Christmas tree...

We celebrated 25 Christmas' in this house, since it was my childhood home.  Little did we know that positive changes were on the horizon for our family in 2013 and that this was going to be the last Christmas we celebrated here.  So many happy memories, it's bittersweet...
