This is what I've been working on the last couple of weeks. Yep that's the tree we just bought.
I'm waiting on some polka dot ribbon to show up that I am going to use for garland. My email says that it just got shipped yesterday. I hope it comes soon! I'll post the finished tree when I'm really done with it.
A close up of the tree, I absolutely love those little puffy white balls, I wish there were more!
Here's the mantle. See how I only have three stocking hangers? I can't find 4th to match, so I guess I'll have to start over, so I'm waiting for the after Christmas sales? I'm not sure, but this year I bought some pretty awesome stockings, which I can't hang all of them, so I guess those stockings you'll have to wait to see on another day.
This tree is upstairs in Mr.'s Office and where Santa leaves his gifts. Mr. really likes colored lights, and random things on the tree, so this one is for him and the kids, something we can do as a family and not really care what it looks like, cause it's really just for us, and the lights are for the people outside.
Some of my favorite ornaments. Each year we've bought Baby Fox with the number he is turning from Hallmark. I think it only goes up to 5, so one more year, sniff, sniff.
Strawberry Shortcake, both my sister and I have this same ornament from when we were kids, and we both love it. The hook is the one from the 80's and totally old and worn out, but still does the job.
The ornament my grandparents bought me when I was still in Seoul and I was supposed to have been here for Christmas but wasn't.
I'm not sure if you have read of Dr. Suess's Horton Hatches the Egg, but my mom read it to us growing up, it can be related to adoption. That no matter what you look like a mother can/is someone who raised you. I have the best parents in the world, and am lucky that they chose me to adopt.
When I get the rest of the decorations up, I'll snap pictures and show you guys, but for now that's most of it! Hope you enjoyed!
