a branch, and other trees…


Christmas Thorn Tree

For Christmas we like to make a thorn tree out of bougainvillea. It is great for hanging ornaments because it has thorns all over it. The girls and I trek around the neighborhood looking for just the right branch. We bring it home, spray paint it gold, put it in a pot with rocks for balance and we decorate--minus the lights.

Artificial Tree

The girls have a little artificial tree that is theirs to decorate with lights and whatever else they come up with.

Green Tree

We don't exactly have Christmas tree lots here in Uganda, but if we look around we're able to harvest a local pine tree.
