Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

As previously mentioned, our Christmas tree reflects the uniqueness of our step family. It is a tree that we build from scratch each year, a project that Adam and the kids really enjoy.

We start with pieces of wood, branches from other trees and finish with our version of a Christmas tree.


Once construction is complete, we add our homemade decorations, that have been collected over time.


Funny looking snowmen…


Sparkly bells…..


Baubles with our names or photos of loved ones.

Our Christmas tree is an eclectic jumble of love and happiness. It reflects the uniqueness of our little family, it shows our personalities from the whole of our children’s lives, with decorations that have been collected from before we were a family, right through to the new ones we make and add each year.

There is a little Christmas in every room of Pen Y Llechwedd.




Even the tree out front didn’t miss out on a little Christmas cheer this year.


How is your Christmas looking this year? Do you have a theme for your decorating?
