This year (and last year) we decorated our tree with white, silver and sparkly ornaments!
I am really happy how it turned out! :)
We did get a real tree this year but I saved a lot of money on our ornaments.
I bought MOST of them from garage sales like this Pottery Barn star.
I also bought a lot of them on clearance from Wal-Mart last year for 50 cents each like this one.
Others I bought as souvenirs from a family vacation a couple of years ago.
I am really loving the sparkly ones!!!
I tried to squeeze ornaments inside the tree so there are ornaments EVERYWHERE!
I seriously tried to put an ornament on almost every branch.
The more, the better! (for me anyway)
I took some pictures of some of my favorites.
I know… I take a lot, heehee!
I love the words!
Gracie really likes this one.
The kids seriously had a BLAST helping me decorate it!!!
They each have there own special ones too!
Here are some pictures at night.
So that is our tree this year. I actually took a billion more pictures. Taking pictures were part of the fun but I didn’t want to bore you with anymore pics, lol!
This tree is totally my favorite tree yet!
Yes, I like the real tree!
Yes, I like the ornaments!
But, I LOVED doing this as a family and making memories!
This is the first year where the kids REALLY enjoyed helping me. They were so helpful and sweet the whole time. No fighting or time outs…just singing Christmas music, talking, helping and having fun…ok… and dancing around like crazy, Christmas dancing fools, lol!
Ok, the baby has had to go to a timeout and couple of times since decorating it because he loves to take the ornaments off, lol!
I can’t blame him…it’s just so fun for him. Actually, he has been good! He is doing better than I thought, surprisingly. When Michael was younger we could really only decorate the top of the tree, lol! He was totally a “Michael”. (If you have a Michael, you know what I mean. :) I was warned about naming him that, lol)
Anyway, what color theme is your tree?
What is your family tradition?
I LOVE all trees!!! If I could, I would love to have a different themed tree in each room of the house but for now I will enjoy reading all your posts linked up to Sarah’s Christmas Tree Party!
I also want to thank you for your sweet comments for my last post. We seriously had a blast. It was just one of those perfect days that I will always remember!
Have a great week!
