Etched in a Stump

One of our family's favorite Christmas traditions is taking a trip to a tree farm to pick out and chop down our tree. Daddy cuts off the stump, and each year one of our 4 girls gets her turn to draw a picture, which daddy then carves into the stump to be displayed in our home and etched in our memories, precious memories of Christmas past that bring joy to Christmas present. Thanks to my friend Lori for this great idea. We began this tradition in 2004.

"Come my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord. Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days..." Psalm 34:11-12

LOVE IT! Your tree is beautiful, but I love the pictures even more. Especially since we can't do this anymore-Matt's allergies made us go artificial :).
