Our Beautiful Tree

Every year after the hours of putting together the tree I think it is the most beautiful tree ever. Of course, I think that is how you are surpose to feel, otherwise you wouldn't put in all the time and effort!

Isn't she lovely?

I began with the lights, some netting and the pearls...


I organized the ornaments...


I added the ornaments and some fluffy spray flock (I posted before that I couldn't find any but the nice people at Ace Hardware ordered some for me)


Wyatt got up in the middle of the night to get a drink while I was decorating it and he said, "That's awesome Mom, it looks like it snowed!" Well, that was what I was going for so I was happy. I wanted it to look like a light Oregon dusting of snow.









Thanks for stopping by to see our tree. Now it is time to turn on Gage's new Justin Bieber Christmas CD and start cranking out the handmade gifts!  If I just had a housekeeper, a cook, a caregiver for Gage, and of course I would need to win the lottery too...then I know I would be able to get everything done before Christmas!
