Lots of things have changed in my life since becoming a mom and one of those has certainly been our Christmas Tree!!! We went from artificial and very formal (white lights, red ribbon, gold ornaments, etc.) to REAL and very homemade!
Last year was our first venture out to choose and cut down a real tree and we had so much fun that we decided it was a must-do every year! This year, we went to our friend's farm - Sickels Tree Farm and had a blast. We decided on a pine tree instead of a fir tree and just love it. It's so full and pretty and smells great!
So, I still stick with the white lights but we have ditched the ribbon, garland and gold balls for an ornament-only Christmas tree. And, like most kids - we make EVERYTHING in our house an ornament!! Toys, cars, food, hair bows, etc...
Here are some photos of our tree this year!
We even have some homemade decorations for our bedroom doors!!!
What does your tree look like this year??
