I'm someone who secretly hates the Christmas tree. I think I like the idea of the tree more than dealing with the actual tree itself. We finally got ours up this weekend. It is about a foot smaller than any other tree we have had. The tree lot only seemed to have short trees that day.
We have used the same ornaments for years and I bought most of them at the dollar store when I was in college. Last year, I seem to have hit up the after Christmas ornament sale because this year, I had boxes of new ones that I don't remember really buying. They're nice and glittery though.
Our memorial ornament for Peter the cat. He was about 5 or 6 weeks old in this picture and weighed maybe a pound. I don't know how we kept him alive but he grew into a 16 pound monster that we miss very much.
The new glitter ornaments I made this year with floor wax and Martha glitter. All the evil glitter is contained inside so no mess to deal with.
Preschool ornaments from Grace and Declan. Where did these tiny children go?
Of course the dog has an ornament too. We gave this one to Tim last year. He and the dog sure do love one another.
