O Christmas Tree

Well, here she is! I've probably taken about 50 pictures of this tree and I can't get one that I really like so I figured I'd just put these up here for now.

We usually use all colored lights but this year it seems that every single colored light set that I had decided to burn out at the same time so we have white lights this year.

I have a collection of old family ornaments that my Mom passed down to me, some old ornaments that I made when I was in school, some ornaments that I made in the past and now Curly Girl has added a few homemade ornaments as well. In addition, every year Hubby and I buy an ornament that represents something that we did this year or that we experienced. I also buy each of the girls a special ornament.

This year we're looking for the perfect Mickey Mouse ornament for Munchkin because of her Mickey obsession and for Curly Girl we're on the hunt for a ballerina ornament to commemorate her very first dance recital. I'm not sure what Hubby and I will end up with yet but if I keep procrastinating we'll probably not have much of a selection.

So, enough talking, here she is...

Hey! It's Kimi from the October 06 AB mommies group. I saw a Ballerina ornament tonight when I was at Hallmark. You might try looking for one there. I am not sure if this link will work or not. http://www.hallmark.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10051&storeId=10001&partNumber=QXI2021_DK&rank=P1R1S&searchValue=ballerina&fromSearch=true
