Oh Christmas Tree

Jaxon is putting stickers on his ornament.

Ever Christmas since we've been married I have searched for a tree topper.  Devin and I both prefer a star for the top of our tree but, I have not found a single one that I like.

After an unsuccessful search again this year, I decided didn't want the top to be bare again so pulled out some craft supplies and make one.  I used a paper towel roll with a cut out paper star (doubled for reinforcement) and some "warm fuzzies" to decorate it.

Jaxon was a great helper, but sadly got 2 hot glue burns in the process.

Here he is putting it on the top of the tree!

Though I love ornaments that match with a cute color scheme and make the tree look so pretty, I really like ornaments that mean something the best.  Here are some of my favorite...

Here is the one Jaxon was making.  He put half of each of the 4 stickers packages on his ornament.  As you can see, quite a few overlapped.  What a silly boy!  I could have "fixed" it, but the way he chose to do it is what makes it so cute and special.  It didn't need to be "fixed."

This is a baby Jesus that Devin made.

I'm not a big fan of these glass ornaments, but this one I love because it was from our first Christmas together. <3

This is an ornament I sent Devin while he was on his mission.  When I sent it I remember wondering if it would be on OUR tree someday.

This is a cute ornament from the Epcot Center in Florida.  We went there at Christmas time in 2007 with Devin's family.  We had a blast!  I love how she has a little baby--so cute!

This is from San Diego.  I bought it when Devin was selling pest control there over the summer.  I love it because it is a snowman made with sand!  Plus, it's a cute girl sandwoman with a flower in her hair and a grass skirt and lei.

We got this ornament on our honeymoon in Laughlin, Nevada (remember, we were married December 18--right in the middle of the holiday season).  I don't really recommend going to Laughlin.  It's basically a mini Vegas, and for a Mormon, there's just not much to do.  Luckily, since we were on our honeymoon we could keep ourselves busy without even leaving our room...

Very cute. This year the top of my tree is decorated, but there aren't any ornaments on it at all! Landon has taken a liking to taking ornaments off and throwing/breaking them.... so our tree is bare this year. I may just put them all on on Christmas Eve after he goes to bed so the tree is pretty for pictures on Christmas Day. I am bummed, but maybe next year we can have them back.... but then again Tyler might be in that phase! AGH!
