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...
