Trim the Tree

The Sunday after Thanksgiving was the perfect day to put up the tree.  I wish we could have a real tree, but we decided the money to buy a tree could be put to better use this year.  Plus, they are pretty messy.  A Bath and Body Works "Fresh Balsam" Wall Flower will have to do for the pine scent.  (Have you ever smelled it?  It's just like a real tree!  So yummy!)

 This is our 6th Christmas since we've been married and we still haven't purchased a tree topper or a tree skirt.  Last year, we made this topper and I love it more than anything we could buy so we'll use it as long as we can!

 Mommy untangling lights and looking just fabulous!  (sarcasm)
Those boys love having a mini tree to decorate too.
 Daddy felt like dancing to the Christmas music and Henry thought it was great!
 Jaxon preferred to hang out under the tree for a while.
Yea for Christmas!  I can't believe it has been a year since last Christmas!

Thats so cute I need the boys to make one for my tree in the family room. I would so love it. It is the worst to find a tree topper. My Dad had made one when I was young I loved it. It was a star that had lights and blinked. I wish I had it now. But it died of old age.:(
