Welcome to Blogmas Day 16!
9 more sleeps until Christmas! 🎅🏻
Today is all about the Christmas tree!
Last year the way we decorate our tree changed. A little over three years ago my husband lost his grandma and last year his grandpa gave the grand-kids her Christmas decorations and we got a lot of her ornaments so last year and this year we ditched our old ornaments and used hers and then filled in the tree with ours. His grandma loved snowmen so that’s a lot of what we have on our tree plus family ornaments. I’ve also got ornaments that I made back in elementary school hanging up, which I will share later on in the blog.
Before we hung the ornaments! We’ve got a 9 ft tree and I believe we used 700 lights on it this year. 😅 We always do clear lights because we like how it looks better on our tree.
This year I let the girls decorate the tree and kept everything where they put it. Normally I would go behind them after they’re in bed and make it more equal and symmetrical but this time of year is about having fun and making memories so that’s what we did! Is it driving me crazy, yes.. but it’s beautiful and they love it. Which is all that matters.
This is the view from the kitchen with only the Christmas tree lights on. I love it!
Here are some close-ups of some of my favorite ornaments!
