Oh Christmas TREES

This year, I was so excited about decorating for Christmas.

I had tons of cute little items to sit around.  We were actually in a house and not a 2 bedroom apartment that came straight from 1962... yellow kitchen applicances and all.
I decided to do three trees this year.

The family tree...

We decided on a top hat as our tree topper this year.  Ryan wasn't very fond of it at first.  However, it is too cute for words and I had to have it.


Bug's tree...

I am a huge fan of white trees with multicolored lights.  It makes me super happy.


This is Big's tree...

Big's tree is a little sad with no tree skirt.  I can't find one that I love.  Until I do, her tree will be skirtless.  Big decided she wanted the green tree this year.  She said she wanted white and pink lights.  Well, I made it work.  Ha!


I guess you can count the ficus tree as a Christmas tree as well...

Please ignore the paper whites that have fallen over.  I have done everything I know to do to keep them standing.  They are just too damn top heavy.


I don't know about you but glitter is my weakness... especially at Christmas time.  LOVE it!  I found this awesome glitter present at the pottery. What made it even better???  It's harlequin.  My two favorite things rolled into one.

I have had a few comments on my chalkboard.  "Happy Birthday!" ~Frosty

People read it as "Happy Birthday Frosty!"

Have you never seen the movie Frosty the Snowman.  He yells HAPPY BIRTHDAY in the cutest way EVER!

Caroline made the cute Santa Christmas tree topper.  She decided to put it on the rooster head for laughs.


I have no great way to display Christmas cards.  I decorated this table with Christmas decor and threw the cards in a green wire bread basket.  I tied a few red bows with grosgrain ribbon and voila!  It's the best I can do this year.  My goal before next year to is make a board like Megan did.  So cute!!


I had TONS of ornaments left over this year since we bought all new ornaments for the "family tree".  We wanted everything on that tree to match this year.  Anyway, I grabbed the triffle dish that I "borrowed" from my Mom and threw a bunch of ornaments in there.  Add a little houndstooth ribbon to the base and voila!!

MacKenzie-Childs catalog beside it.  I look through that thing a million times a day... seriously.  One day (in my dreams) I will own whole collections of MacKenzie-Childs.

A girl can dream right?


So there you have it.  My decorations in a few photos.  I have so many ideas for next year, I can hardly stand it.
