Community Photo Challenge-Christmas Season I think I've fooled around long enough. It's time to start participating in the Blogger's Community Photo Challenge. The current challenge is ... The christmas Season.

There is so much to choose from when wanting to depict something that represents The Christmas Season. At our house the Christmas Season is definately here when the ornaments come out of their boxes to be placed on the tree. Here is my entry for this challenge:

The trimmingof the tree is like a ritual for us. The tree must be purchased days in advance and allowed to spread while in the tree stand for a couple of days before the ornaments are hung. It is then my job to put the lights on the tree. This year Trenton will be halping Grandpa with that task.

After the lights go on, the rest of the family joins in putting their favorite ornaments up. We have ornaments from both sides of the family that date back a couple of generations, so there are lots to choose from.

The ritual is ended after the angel is placed on top of the tree and the lights are officialy turned on. I try to have some eggnog on hand with some cinnamon and just a touch of nutmeg on top. This ritual will be played out this next weekend. I'll take a few more pictures to share as we go.
