I just love decorating for Christmas, well mostly decorating the Christmas tree. If you recall last year we did a little tree in the corner on side table with minimal Christmas ornaments. But not this year, this year I am pulling out the big tree and going all out with a few exceptions, no breakable ornaments near the bottom of the tree, or really not many ornaments at the bottom at all, since the boys still like to pull the occasional ornament down. Mostly they have been pretty good about leaving the ornaments alone.
One of my very first posts was about Christmas ornaments and how special they are too me. I generally love to go places and buy new ornaments, little gift shops always have some of the cutest ones. So typically as I am unwrapping and putting out the ornaments I am remembering who they are from or why I bought them and it brings back all the wonderful memories
So I thought I would share some of my favorite ornaments on my tree this year.
First up are these two leaf wrapped earthy apple and pear ornaments I recently purchased at the Dairy Farm gift shop, I think they are darn cute!
This ornament I got for my Whitey kitty a few years ago, it’s a fat white cat. How many cat ornaments do you see, seriously! I just love this one.
As I am taking pictures and placing ornaments I have helpers trying to remove ornaments
I found these two peanut ornaments when I was pregnant with the boys, it was special to me because we use to call them our little peanuts.
As a way to discourage the boys from the big tree I set them up their own little tree in their room with toddler friendly ornaments
Little W favorite ornament is this little wooden train, I think we got this from my mom.
and Little H’s favorite is this John Deere Hat ornament, I got this last year because I knew they couldn’t break a hat!
It seems no matter what I do to discourage them from the big Christmas tree, this is still their favorite hang out
I am guessing it’s soft under there
Thanks for joining me on my little Christmas tree tour.
