the third day of christmas

By December 3, 2011 No Comments

we decorated the tree tonight. finally. we cut it down last monday and then put it up on tuesday. i believe we put lights on it on wednesday and thursday. i guess you could say it was a process. the tree alone is beautiful…the ornaments just add to the beauty.

addy has four new princess ornaments that daddy bought her…this is rapunzel (aka tangled):

this is a snowflake that one of my grandma bell’s friends made me when i was little. my brother aaron has the matching blue snowflake ornament. when we were little, my mom unwrapped all the ornaments and gave them to us to place on the tree. i remember each year waiting in excitement for my purple snowflake to be unwrapped.

i found this ornament last year after christmas. my mom had a chatty cathy doll that i remember playing with.

this is my baby ornament. if you look closely, it says “1981.” it was stepped on a few years back and painstakingly glued back together. ah, memories!

have you put up your tree yet? do you have favorite, special or new ornaments?
