My dad gave me this quilt for Christmas...
it was made by my great grandmother....
Our $15 christmas tree...
with one of the pine cones from our walk...


thought they looked good on my tree...
I just now got the tree decorated tonight...
instead of digging all my lights...ornaments out of storage...
Hubby and I went to Walgreens...
I got a bag of 100 shatter proof ornaments....
for $7.50....now the babies can redecorate..
without breaking anything...
they also had their lights for 1/2 price...


it is a very simple tree this year...
I usually put a ton of ornaments on the tree..
this year going simple....
I saw the coolest idea on pinterest...
turning a ladder into a Christmas tree....

so here is my version...
of a ladder Christmas tree...





count down to Christmas...
still have to cook...clean....wrap gifts...
but I'm going to take it as it comes...
enjoy the process....
Christmas day we are going to see War Horse...
looks like a good movie...
Merry Christmas to all...
and to all a good night...

that ladder is way cool, i could do a small one for our yard, i did not put out any lights, but this would not be hard with our little 4 foot ladder. your tree is beautiful and a great idea to baby proof it.

Good idea to get unbreakable ornies for the babies.

Merry Christmas!
