Our Christmas Tree

Thursday, December 15, 2016

Viewing our Christmas tree from the foyer

Our tree doesn't lean, it's just an impatient photographer trying to hurry sp she can bake more cookies!  ;P

Last year we bought a skinny tree for our family room, and I really do like it because it doesn't take up much room.  Mr. Art @ Home loves freshly cute Christmas trees, but we have asthmatics in the house who like to feel great during Christmas!

Here are a few of my favorite ornaments:

This is the only ornament I've bought for the Christmas tree so far this season.  It's from Anthropologie, and the Mouse King is wearing University of Alabama crimson, white, and houndstooth.  Roll Tide Roll!!!

Many of our ornaments are MacKenzie-Childs we've collected over the years.

Nothing says Christmas like a disco ball.   :/

See Santa and the blimp?  He's bringing prezzies to all the Westies of the world because they deserve it.  Westies are the *besties*

Our tree skirt is also new, an Amazon Black Friday special, but I love it!

We have more lights out on our tree than on.  Why can't someone invent a lighted tree that lasts longer than one season???

Until next time...
