The Angels on my Tree Hugh’s Charity Christmas Tree Topper Photo Challenge

My Christmas tree, slightly unfinished, as decorated by the boys. An improvement on last year. I slightly (ahem) rearranged after they'd gone to bed. They never noticed!

My Christmas tree, slightly unfinished, as decorated by the boys. An improvement on last year. I slightly (ahem) rearranged after they’d gone to bed. They never noticed!

My tree does not have an angel on top. No, what it has is a rather plain, very slightly sparkly silver star.

But it does have angels on it. Four of them. These smiley faces belong to the angels on my tree.

Their names are Craig, Jacob, Brody and Charlie. They had the same syndrome that my Carys has, and in just over a year, they all earned their angel wings. I got to know them through their lovely, brave mothers on facebook. Their lives were short and bittersweet, but full of love, and in that time they taught us so much. I can’t believe they’re gone. RIP little lovelies. Gone, but NOT forgotten.

This post is part of Hugh’s Charity Christmas Topper Photo Challenge.

  4. Hi Ali. This is such a beautiful Christmas Tree and a gorgeous post. I love how you say the boys decorated it and then you rearranged a few things after they went to bed. I did that with our tree after John decorated it and then went to bed. He never noticed either 🎅

    The star on the top of the tree is just like you. A bright and shinning star in every sense of the word.

    Thank you very much for participating in my charity photography challenge in aids of The Dogs Trust. I really do appreciate it very much.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to the whole Isaac family.
    Seasons greetings,
    Hugh

        • Haha! Know how it feels! Still, it’s the pleasure of getting involved, isn’t it? I loved that my boys were joining in the fun and singing along to Christmas songs on mtv, even if the results after weren’t quite so fetching as I had expected… it looked a bit like a giant spider had woven a Web through all its branches!
