Welcome to my tree.
Enjoy a tour of a few of my favorite ornaments.
Stay until the end and watch me mock my innocent daughter.
Crystal made us these girly pink snowglobe ornaments. Love them. This tour is inspired by her post here.
A precious family from our church sends us a crystal star every year. They look so gorgeous with the lights.
My personal favorite for so many reasons. The girls want to use it to give their dolls coffee. Hands off kids! It's mama's!
This is from a zillion years ago to commemorate our first Christmas. I am the nerd with the book and Jason is the one playing drums. 15 years later, it is much the same.
It couldn't be Christmas without Star Wars represented!
If you haven't read Olive the Other Reindeer you simply must. Just whatever you do, don't watch the movie. (Sorry Drew Barrymore, you were awful.)
One of my first experiences at a photo studio and thankfully my best. Love these girls in their red dresses.
The year we moved into our first house, the city sent these to all of the residents. Our tree was pretty bare, but this ornament meant so much to us as newlyweds.
Ditched the photo studio for a little beach shot. Lulu still doesn't have hair, one year later. Poor girl.
Joy is represented in so many ways on our tree.
This appeared on our doorstep one year. I still don't know who left it, but I am so thankful. It is such a wonderful reminder when we are missing her.
Both of the girls got these mouse hats from their aunt to commemorate our near weekly trips to Disneyland.

I was foolishly lured into the Wal-Mart "portrait" studio while shopping with Lucy one day. The "photographer" had just bought some new costumes and wanted to try them out. Since I am overly concerned with hurting complete stranger's feelings, I obliged her. She stuffed my 8 month old daughter into this hideous Christmas tree bunting mess and began snapping away. Luckily for all parties involved, Lucy hardly complained. You know who complained? The pushy photographer who was horrified that I wouldn't throw down $100 for a picture package. All I could handle spending was $4.95 for a sheet of wallets to document this random and laughable experience. Too bad the studio was recently replaced with a McDonalds. I wonder if they make the tree costumes in adult sizes. That would be a Christmas card that people would talk about!
