Oh Christmas Tree

Here are a few pictures of my Christmas tree. Please forgive the photo quality, as my camera is very stubborn about taking pictures indoors. I got the best shots that I could with the light and fussy camera. I did have to break down and use my flash in a few of them, which makes everything so stark, but I guess that is better than no pictures at all. Enjoy!

I am very much a creature of habit and do the same thing on my tree every year. Some of the decorations have been on my tree since we first were married 16 Christmases ago. Each year something new gets added to make this merry collection.

The snowflakes have been on my tree since our first Christmas together. The reindeer ornaments I hand painted one year. They were a lot of work, but well worth it. The glass ornaments I made with my kiddos a couple year ago. We took clear glass balls and poured different colored paint inside and swirled it around. They were fun and creative. The snowmen, and Santa's I also made different year.

The adorable mittens I won in a giveaway from Michelle over at Chocolate and Marmalade Tea. They are a perfect fit on my tree and add so much charm. Thanks Michelle! I hope your move is going smoothly!

This sign says it all in our house! We are believers of the big guy in the red suit! We love Santa in our house and incorporate his goodness into our Christmas season! It hangs above the tree so everyone remembers the rule! Merry Christmas to you all! I would love to see your tree, so make sure and leave me a link in your comments!
