Christmas Trees, 2012
It’s well documented that I am crazy for Christmas. And this being our first Christmas in the new house as well as MJ’s first Christmas…well, let’s just say I am even more excited this year than ever before! Behold, our Christmas trees for 2012.
Sadly, we had to put our 10-foot Christmas tree in storage, as our ceilings in this house aren’t tall enough for it. So we’re down a tree this year…but no matter, I still think the trees I did put up turned out great!
Our main Christmas tree in the living room. 6 feet tall and houses all of our ornaments, homemade, store-bought, and gifted. I love the mix of colored and white lights!
These two helped decorate, of course:
Um, close-up, because this is just too precious:
Awwwwww! Classic “old man face” from M.
Mini-tree (unlit) in the baby’s room. This is what I call our Charlie Brown tree…it’s tiny and kind of homely looking, but I think it’s so cute in his room! Decorated in blue and silver to match his décor.
Strawberry tree in the kitchen window sill! We are lucky enough to have a big deep window sill in our kitchen and this is perfect in it.
Garland with poinsettias and red balls above the cupboards. The awesome thing about this house is that there is a light switch that corresponds to the outlets above the cupboards, so I can flick these lights on easily!
So, there you have it…our holiday trees (and garland) for this year. I am slowly but surely getting the rest of our Christmas décor up so I will try to remember to do a post about them later! And of course, our outside lights…the first time we have had an actual HOUSE to put lights on! I really wanted to do something like this:
“We’re gonna have the best looking house in town, Russ!”
but sadly, I was vetoed. HAHA!
Do you have your Christmas décor up yet? How many trees do you put up?
