I had so much fun with the last one, I decided to show my life again! This week Kelly's theme is Christmas trees. We went with a smaller, fake tree bought a few years ago in an effort to save money this year. I was dreading it, I did not think it was going to look good at all. Boy was I wrong! I was pleasantly surprised! It left plenty of room for a new, glitzy tree topper that I don't know what to call other than "fireworks!" Here she is!!!
I really like to keep it traditional and use only ornaments given to us or that mean something special instead of going with a particular color scheme.

I made this in kindergarten! I let my 5th graders make this now and they love it! You just wrap yarn around a pre-cut small paper plate and decorate. By the way, MOM! What were you thinking with these bangs???
Jon's Dad gave us this the Christmas I was pregnant with Grace
I found this cheerleader with angel wings several years ago. How odd, I thought, but I couldn't help but think of who it reminded me of. Lindsey Wilson, a high school friend of mine (and someone I cheered with), died in a car accident the summer before my sophomore year. When I bought this ornament I bought one for her mother, too. She is always the highest ornament on my tree.
