Oh Christmas Tree Oh Christmas Tree!!!

I tend to sing a lot in the shower...and I cannot get this song out of my head. I'm not even sure what the words are, but I'm pretty sure I keep singing, "your leaves and never changing...." That can't be right. Anyways, Shane and I had went to "Bob's Christmas Tree" right after Thanksgiving and picked out the cutest little Christmas tree of all times. I wish we could keep it. It stood about 4' tall.I had been waiting for this all year because I keep collecting ornaments everywhere we go and finally got to display them. So here is a snapshot of our year...through Christmas ornaments. Enjoy!

The first picture I shot with a flash...then with just the ambient light...keepin' it real.

Love this one! Read about how I got my wedding dress ornament here.

 Picked this one up in New Orleans for my bachelorette party.

For all you folks who don't know how they say Merry Christmas in Hawaii (ahem Vanessa), "Mele Kalikimaka!"

Take me back 2015!!!

This is is really cute, on the inside it has notes that say "Blessings." We wrote down what we considered blessings throughout the year and can always look back and be thankful! Thanks to my MIL (from Hallmark.)

This one came from my best friend Lauren. We used to live right near Disney World so it really makes me miss home seeing this one. Thanks LP!

I work with timber - hence the birch wood ornament. :-)

Atlanta adventures ...

 This one is for Shane's work...if you don't know what he does you will keep reading my blog ;-)

And finnally thanks to my SIL a "2010" ornament to commemorate the year we were married.

How fun! Can't wait to see what we land on the tree next year. What are your Christmas traditions?


  1. I LOVE the birchwood. You work with wood?? I don't get it. But I WANT that ornament!

  2. Awww love this post! Telling a story with ornaments is a great idea =0)

  3. I LOVE the tour o' Christmas Tree via the ornaments! We get a new ornament every year and I love looking back at all of them and remembering all our Christmas' pasts!
    Your tree is perfect :)
