O Christmas Tree

Deck the halls with boughs of holly
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
Tis the season to be jolly'
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Don we now our gay apparel
Fa-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la

Troll the ancient Yule-tide carol
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la!

I wasn't in the mood to do much decorating this year,
but "PONY Girl" expects it.
So I had to get busy!

How steadfast are your branches!

City sidewalks, busy sidewalks
Dressed in Holiday style.
In the air there's a feeling of CHRISTMAS!

These lovely ceramic angels once belonged to our friend "POP"

I grew up loving these beautiful ornaments

Said the night wind to the little lamb
Do you see what I see
Way up in the sky little lamb
Do you see what I see
A star, a star, dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite
With a tail as big as a kite.

Said the little lamb to the Shepard boy
Do you hear what I hear
Ringing through the sky, Shepard boy,
Do you hear what I hear
A song, a song, high above the trees
With a voice as big as the sea
With a voice as big as the sea.

This wonderful nativity set was "Pops too."
I was going to get rid of it, and my niece Sares ,
knew I would regret it, so she saved it for me.

Thank you sweetie girl!

Said the Shepard to the mighty king,
Do you know what I know
In your palace warm, mighty king,
Do you know what I know
A Child, a Child shivers in the cold
Let us bring Him silver and gold
Let us bring him silver and gold.

Said the King to the people everywhere,
Listen to what I say
Pray for peace, people, everywhere,
Listen to what I say
The Child, the Child, sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
He will bring us goodness and light.

My dollar tree CHRISTMAS trees.
Santa came from Goodwill.

Rocking around the CHRISTMAS tree,
At the CHRISTMAS party hop.
Mistletoe hung where you can see
Every couple tries to stop.

Rocking around the CHRISTMAS tree,
Let the CHRISTMAS spirit ring
Later we'll have some pumpkin pie,
And we'll do some caroling.

Here comes Santa Claus!
Here comes Santa Claus!
Right down Santa Claus Lane!
Vixen and Blitzen and all his reindeer
Are pulling on the reins.
Bells are ringing, children singing,
All is merry and bright.
Hang your stockings and say your prayers,
'Cause Santa Claus if coming tonight.

Cowboy's Mothers CHRISTMAS tree

I'm dreaming of a white CHRISTMAS,
Just like the ones I used to know.
Where the tree tops glisten,
And Children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow!
Jesus is the reason for the Season!

You are getting so creative with your post! It looks so pretty and I love the way you incorporated the Christmas songs. Hopefully I can get the porch done today. Good thing you didn't mention where the greenery came from, LOL!

All of your decorations are beautiful! Thank you for sharing them. The horseshoe ornament on your tree especially caught my eye! Your so lucky to have ornaments or decorations saved from family members. I wish I had that. Such rich and colorful personalities...you and your cowgirl family.
