Oh Christmas Tree

I haven't really shown any of our decorations, and Chris will be disappointed I don't have pictures of the outside of the house, but here are our 2 Christmas trees.  Every year we debate doing a 3rd of just Penn State ornanments (yes, we have that many), but never quite make it to number 3 before burning out.  Feel free to blame any bare spots on the dog and cat who both like to use the trees as their personal smorgasborgs.  One of the smartest things we ever did was to decorate the front tree with bells so that we have a little bit of a warning if someone is sticking her nose where it shouldn't be.  (Harper, I'm looking at you!)

The front one.  Chris always feels it looks too bare...and honestly?  From the picture?  I'm agreeing.  We can just never agree!  He wants to put fake snow (ugh), and I want to put ribbon (and he objects). remains sparse.

My little Charlie Brown tree as Chris likes to refer to it.  This was my tree from my single days.  At least it looks full!

Maybe I should have taken pictures with the lights on.  Oh well.  Post for another year.


  1. I'm with you - tell Chris to Just Say No to Fake Snow!!!

    I collect Lion ornaments because not only is that my astrological sign, that was my sorority's mascot. One day I will have an all lion tree!

  2. They look beautiful. And love the idea of the bells. Need that for kids around here.

    Hope you had a great Christmas!
