Grandchildren's Forrest

Linking up also with No Minimalist Here - links in my side bar

This is my Grandchildren's Forrest for our Super Seven! 
We have seven grandchildren and each of them have a tree.  On their tree's are the things they like.  Wyatt loves helicopters so there are a bunch of  matchbox helicopters on his tree along with his ornaments from each year that we have made.   Gabe loves balls, Teague loves books, Tate loves stuffed bears, Talia is 5 months old and our princess,  Esti is 4 months old and an angel. 
This tree shown is Cody's tree and he loves cars.  The rest of the ornaments are explained in the pictures.   
This is 2010 ornie and used for the topper this year.  It is a time capsule of sorts - the inserts in the top are little things about Cody right now at his 2 1/2 year old self.

This is the ornament from last year and last years topper.   It is now an ornament on his tree.
This is the ornament from 2008 when he was just a baby.

These are a few things we have made together....top left snowman hand print,  top right a spider - which he loves, bottom left an eye spy ball, bottom right are a few of the car ornies on the tree.  He loves cars.

This is our entire forrest -they and their parents live far away so this is a little piece of them here with us at Christmas.
p.s. we are expecting #8 in May - another tree next year!

Thanks for stopping by - hope you enjoy your entire Christmas Season!

Your 'forest' looks fantastic. Your trees are very special. I'm visiting from the Nester's tour. Thank you for sharing.

Love your trees! This is such a neat idea. I would like to do this for my grand babies. I only have two so I would have twin trees instead of a forest. Thanks for sharing and have a Merry Christmas!

Paula, This is such a sweet idea for keeping your grandkids close this time of year. I have five myself and we won't be seeing them at Christmas this year..bummer! I hope you have a wonderful holiday.
