I mean a little......but first, I know you are all terribly jealous about my new header. You wish with all your hearts that your Christmas tree was very crooked like mine. The sad thing is, crooked would be o.k. if it was a real tree....but it's not. Oh, and those presents? Empty boxes.
We have this little tradition in our home. Every year as Christmas approaches I say no tree this year.....as the superhero calmly gets the tree out and proceeds to put it up because he knows this is a little song and dance I do yearly. And then, reluctantly I drag out the ornaments to put on the tree. Then something magical happens! As I place each ornament on the tree, I start thinking about when I got that ornament or who gave it to me and I get all sentimental and I'm suddenly glad we're putting a tree up this year. I only put ornaments on my tree that mean something to me or were given to me by someone.
The poor tree when he first put it up
Several years ago, I found these little frames at M*chael's and put pictures of us and the kids when they were little.....I bought several extras, but I'm getting low!
The Nativity.....His birthplace
If you enlarge this picture and look carefully, I started giving the superhero ornaments when we started dating. The first one was a H*llmark man and lady....it's on the left top and it's white. Then I started giving him the Sw**orski ornament of the year. In all we now have 19 ornaments on the trees. Those are some of my most favorite decorations
Found these cute plates at *j m*xx
My MIL gives us a clo*htique Santa every year.....I'll have to find another place to put them when I put the stockings up. Oh, yea, that's another thing .....I said NO stockings this year. Unfortunately, I said it in front of Matt who said no stockings??? so I'll be dragging the stockings out.
And this poor thing.....our Christmas tree needs a brace. Anyway, it's up and decorated and it is what it is!
