Pretty! I love the combination of kid's handmade things and glass and other ornaments.
you go, Ms. Moon! That's an awesome tree.
The sweet photo ornament of Mean Aunt Jesse is so so cute! Was there a blog post that I missed on why you call her Mean Aunt Jesse?
Love it --and your comment about the bird's nest made me remember the Christmas when I was a girl that was bird's nest-themed. My mother went through a weird stage --
It looks great. I like all those hand made ornaments. The smell of fresh greenery is awesome.
Good work. Only 7 more days and you can tear it all down again.
Look at you go - with 5 days to spare! Looks lovely, especially the handmade ornaments. Hope your house smells divine.
Now, all I want to do is go home and lay under my mother's tree.Three more days.
wonderful job. love the kids' ornaments. sweet, sweet, sweet.
seriously if one more well meaning person asks me "are you ready for christmas?" i might scream!
Your tree looks wonderful. I love all the handmade ornaments. When A and I decorate the tree, so many of the ornaments have significance and meaning; our first holiday together, vacations, symbols of special memories/moments.
AWww Jessie :)
Beautiful tree. I can feel the story in each of those ornaments.
Yeah! Gorgeous tree.Been able to catch up on your blog last night. The story of your friend in nursing school years ago and how Jessie happened to get to see her in CO was wonderful! Thanks for the link to her blog--we both have teen boys so I look forward to checking out her blog.It ended up way too cloudy here to see any moon last night.
Sitting here with a cup of tea, catching up, and smiling. You just make me smile... love the spanish moss with that light, that lovely morning sun shining through it, and the tiny frog (I couldn't squish him, either) and your tree with the deer heads peeking over the top like antlered Christmas angels... of course my favorite ornaments are those that the kids obviously made. We have them, too, painted popsicle sticks and santas with cottonball fluff on their hats and baker's clay ornaments... and they just bring back the best memories...
Now you can strike that cocksucking job (tree-trimming) off the list. Yahoo!
It is beautiful, Mama.
the title of this made me laugh out loud. thank you!!
Great ornaments! I think Santa in flannel shirt w/rifle may be my favorite. But then there are the kid's ornaments: family history on the tree. Nice.x0 N2
That's so cute!
Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
