CCC – December

We have made it to the final month of our blog circle, Cross Country Clicks! I have been so fortunate to participate in this circle with such a talented group of women. This month we went with the theme, O’ Christmas Tree, since we are all preparing for the Christmas holiday. When my second Christmas with Jack rolled around many years ago I thought it would be fun to start a tradition of buying ornaments for each other. I found a plane ornament at Hallmark and it fit Jack perfectly since he has a love of aviation and has worked in aviation for most of his adult life. Since that Christmas 10 years ago, he has received a plane ornament from me every year. I don’t know what I will do if Hallmark ends the series! We also started buying an ornament every year for our kids after they were born. It’s one of my favorite parts of the Christmas season. Seeing what ornament Jack will pick for me each year and finding something that fits whatever the kids loved that year. It’s a wonderful walk down memory lane when we decorate our tree each year.


Please continue the circle and check out how my talented friend, Melanie, interpreted the theme O’ Christmas Tree. Merry Christmas!!

    Oh my! I love your images! You should print them big and hang them up during the Christmas season or all year 😉 The first one is my favorite! Such a great tradition Ann, which leads to great memories! Thanks for sharing <3ReplyCancel

  • Love that you have this tradition for Christmas and can incorporate a beloved hobby/interest. Your images are all beautiful, but I especially like how the reflection in the first image blends into the actual tree bokeh. I have to really look to see where it stops and starts. Wonderful doing this project with you!ReplyCancel

  • The middle shot is very intriguing! Neat how the texture of the table comes through the bokeh, and the slant of the table edge adds interest.ReplyCancel
