It's a wonderful reminder of the times we've cherished.

    Congrats Lo on your #2 finish! I did not get to vote this time, but this was my favorite. The idea of the special ornaments was very touching. I wish I'd thought of that!

    I knew that angel looked familiar! LOL! Nice TT double; something else for the two of you to share this Christmas!

    Just beautiful! What an effort it must have been to decorate the tree. My #2, and #2 it became. Congratulations!

    Congratulations and thanks for work you put in the tree. Maybe a large Box needed and sealing tape

    Beautiful picture under difficult lighting. I like the idea for the decoration very much.
The reflections in the windows are great!

    Thanks Elliott - I must admit that each year I swear it's going to be the last time I set up the tree, but we really get so much pleasure from it, that I end up doing it anyway. Now for the boring part - taking it down...

    Thanks Jade - It's nice to get another perspective on your shot - I actually wanted the reflections to show up - yet you, and perhaps others will find them a distraction. I'll have to try toning them down just to see what happens.

    TF! Saw this family of bears in fujimugs but this time they're not the main subject.. nice one.

    The most beautiful tree in this Challenge; the bears and sleigh and warm wood flooring and dimished only by the background. The reflecting lights and window framing is, for me, a distraction that could have easily been toned down (darkened). Otherwise, a beautiful shot.
