The TREE!

so this year we (me) made a 'family' Christmas tree. it all started when i didn't want to pay $8.00 for the star tree topper. i was scrounging (yep. it's a word, in my vocabulary) around the house searching for something that could be considered a "tree topper". last year we just went without, which is fine with me. but him insisted that a Christmas tree is not a Christmas tree without a topper. and since i make it an effort to make everyone around me pleased (insert smile!), i had to find something! so deep in the decorating box i found the letter "P"! i had one of those ah-ha moments and decided with a few family pictures and the letter "P" we could chalk this one up as the first "family" Chirstmas tree! him thinks this is a tradition we should stick to. and each year when we (me) decorate the tree we can remenicse over the year-old pictures still left in the frames! sounds fun huh! i think we just might have our first home made family tradition in the making!!! Yay for traditions!!

Traditions, can't think of any, but I freaking love this tree. I might steal an idea or two from you here. I love this new blog! I seriously need some domestic help.

Love your tree! I really like the swirly things you have on it- too cute! So far my domestic tradition is to string the lights incorrectly on the tree each and every year, so that there are too many on the bottom, and not enough on top! And then each and every year I have to re-do it because I forget like a dummy! I even did it again last night..sheesh.

I think you are really on to a wonderful tradition here. I laughed all the way through your blog when you mentioned we (me),...lol Your tree is beautiful!

Amanda said...
