Tis The Season

On Sunday we put up our brand new Christmas tree! Last year, there were lots of tears when the kids discovered our old Christmas tree crammed in the garbage can. But it was time. That tree was SO old (it belonged to Ryan's grandma before us) and had so many missing branches, plus it was SHORT. So I found a bargain on this beautiful 9 foot tree and the bonus is that it already has lights! The biggest challenge with decorating this year, was getting the kids OUT of the christmas tree box... I don't know what's happening here... We put the star on FIRST at our house... Every year I contemplate getting new decorations and creating a beautiful, fancy-shmancy tree. But I can't help it, I love our old ornaments, some that Ryan made when he was little. And I love knowing my kids decorated the tree, even if it's not exactly orderly. I think it's beautiful.

It looks great! I love how excited our boys get when it's time to decorate the tree. They love putting their own ornaments on the tree.

We will have many years (further down the road) for a fancy christmas tree, right?????

I love it! We have old ornaments on our tree too, and it brings back good memories! Love the tree!
