My First Christmas Tree!!

By T-Rah

When we were living in Colorado we didn't see much point in decorating for Christmas since we were never at our house for the holidays...but this year, after all the dust settled, I figured it was time to try and be somewhat domestic and do a tree. And I LOVE it. :) It's so fun to come home to a lit tree with pretty decorations and my some of my favorite colors. I just wish I knew how to make the rest of my house look good!!

My favorite items on the tree are probaby the aqua poinsettias (even though I could only get two), the butterflies, the birds, and the pineapple. :) Most of my ornaments had to be plastic since "demolition boy" has a hard time keeping his hands to himself. He's even been pretty good at breaking a couple plastic ones! And Guy isn't much better. I borrowed some glass ornaments from my mom and put them in a bowl (out of reach from Riley) and Guy wasn't convinced that they were he threw one and another to "prove his point," but really ended up proving himself wrong. So I guess I have two demolition boys in my house!

Merry Christmas everyone!!
