The perfect one

I can't believe Feb.  is almost over and I am still posting Christmas posts...oh well! We just enjoyed a snow day and what better to get you in a Christmas mode than snow. Ha ha! Don't mind it was well into the 60's a few weeks ago!?!? Gotta love MO!

This was the first year we had a "real" Christmas tree. We weren't sure how it was going to go with allergies, mess, children...etc. but we loved it! It was so easy and a fun experience too! I am sure we will make this a tradition in the years to come.

We purchased it from a place that helped us load it. Yes, we totally tied it to the top of the SUV. The tree made it some in one piece. It was so fun to set it up together and cut the strings. The kids had a blast...Mark and I had fun too!

We went pretty simple this year and it was perfect. Too many ornaments kinda stresses me out at this point. We have hardwood and it makes me a bit nervous for falling items. ;) The tree was filled with LOTS of lights, thanks to Daddy and then we started with the decorations...

We stayed with a color theme and bog round ornaments but we always add our special memory ornament for Ryder. Wyatt and Sloane put it on together.

All is calm, all is bright...


  1. Beautiful tree! I've only had a real tree once. I'm not sure if I will do it again, but it was a fun experience!

  2. This was our first year w a real tree too, and we just got rid of it two weeks ago! Haha you're not the only one behind. :) and the tree smelled so good I loved it!


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
