IT'S TREE TIME!

We finally got our tree up and running..lol. My kids were so excited to decorate it, and I feel bad because I kept telling them what ornaments NOT to put up...lol. I know..I sound so mean!! We decided to go simple this year and use the white lights, the silver and red ornaments, red bows, and just the Disney balls that we have. It looks so cute! My camera did not take great pictures at night with the tree lights on, and if I turned on the flash on my camera it made my tree look super plain! So, here is how the tree looks in almost natural light! I think the light coming in from behind the tree is messing up this picture. Oh, and I took a close up of our tree topper because it's so pretty. My mother in law gave that to us a few years back. I also have the kids stockings hanging from a wall shelf, but I want to get a poinsetta plant to put on it so it will look more holiday'ish. I'll post pictures when that's all done!

I need a new camera!

I think the tree looks like a beauty. Love the tree topper too. We wanted to put an angel there but there wasn't enough room up top. :(

Hope you have a great rest of the week.

I prefer an angel on the top of my tree, but the kids continually bug me for a star. Maybe next year I'll give in.
