heres our decorated christmas tree
a lot of the ornaments i picked up at the dollar store, target, walmart, and goodwill
and i have a few very girly ones i got when i worked at gottschalks and lived in the dorms and had a little 4ft tree
...but most of our ornaments are from this tradition that my family had
...basically we would get an ornament every year (usually depicting something that happened that year, or what we were involved in (i have tons of cheerleading ones!)) and we were all grown up we would have plenty of ornaments to put on our tree!
some of my favorites are:
my glass ballet slippers
and the little mermaid
and from when i was older:
my first year of college (even though i ended up switching schools)
the year i became a photo major
and this is last years from when we moved into our place (which happens to be a townhouse...and i love that there are two little birds on it...fyi im the blue one because its much prettier hehe!)
i finally convinced hubbers to get the ones from when he was little from his mom (she doesnt put them up anymore)
there werent many but i love this one:
i got him these for his contribution to the tree (its very girly)
in honor of this (he was very excited!)
this year my mom got us this bridal couple (its on its way)
and i also got this one because we got engaged last christmas eve!
i absolutely love this tradition and i think i will continue to get us an ornament representing the year and it is definitely something ill do with my kids!
