**Thank you for all your sweet comments on my last post. And thank you to everyone who emailed me. I am praying for you all! My computer has been freezing up but I am slowly making progress responding to each one of you.**
We put our Christmas tree up the week before Thanksgiving. We go out of town for Thanksgiving so I love coming home to a decorated house.
We put it in the dining room again. I just really love having it in here! I can see it from the living room and kitchen but it is a little more out of the way so the kids are not bothering it all day. We don't have a play room so we play in the living room all day long. We need the space to roll around and play. I (my Dad and Cody) also potted it (with cement) in a garden urn when we bought it.
The burlap tree skirt was a gift last year from Sweet Tea and Linen. Love it!
Our tree and topper has looked like this since we got married 8 years ago. I still love it but I am slowly adding in white to the mix of lime, red and gold ornaments.
Here are a few of my favorite sentimental ornaments. The salt dough handprint (Westin) and footprint (Reagan) are my new favorites added this year!
I buy a new ornament each year for us as couple and Westin and Reagan. I try to get it to coordinate with the tree. :) I started buying monogrammed ornaments a few years ago and I love that. So I try to find a "D" for us each year.
This book page ornament is our ornament for this year. I am going to add a "D" to it.
Westin is getting a bike this year so I got him this red tricycle ornament.
Reagan has the "Baby's 1st" ornament.
This fish is from our Hawaii trip we took back in 2005.
This Santa ornament is from a cruise we did in 2007.
Westin got a tree this year! I was a little surprised myself that I bought him colored lights but I remembered how much I loved colored lights on my tree in my room when I was growing up. He said it was "beautiful" when he saw it so I think he likes it too.
More Christmas decoration pics coming soon!
