our black and white "FamilyTree"

 So my family is really into family history.  We tell our kids stories about their great great grandparents and call them "ancestor stories".  So I had the idea this year to include our heritage on our tree and call it a "family tree"  We went back 5 generations from our kids on both sides. 


I used a toile background for my side,

...and polka dot for my husband's side to distinguish between them.

 For a FREE printout of your own family tree go to and create and account, it is so    very amazing to see names of people appear on your very own family tree!

I added an over-sized monogrammed ornament for each of my own kids to make them know they are a special part of our family tree (i modified an idea I found on pintrest, YES I did paint these white, they were formerly gold and I added a black vinyl sticker.)

 Here it is: our family tree

kind of a switch from last year right?
