Happy Sunday!

Hi Everyone! I had a wonderful Saturday catching up with two of my fantastic girlfriends. First I met a girlfriend for Starbucks, and then I met another girlfriend for lunch. I was home by 3 p.m., and then it was time to finish up a couple of things around here. We finally put the ornaments on the tree! I've had an ongoing and continuing saga with a new Christmas tree that I purchased on clearance in January, and I'm just so tired of this tree! It's a prelit tree, and there are about 4 - 5 branches that aren't lighting up. So, they sent me a new section from Hong Kong, but the pole on the new section was damaged, so I couldn't put it on the tree to see if it would even light up. Anyway, they're sending me another replacement section. I'm sure it will get here on the 23rd or later! Crazy!


Here it is finally. We have A LOT of furniture in a small living room, so this tree is just HUGE in this room! It's starting to grow on me though. The lights on it are all white lights, and we LOVE colorful lights, but I just skipped putting the extra lights on it for this year. I'll put the colorful ones on next year. The colorful ones are just so much fun!


Doesn't my Cricut Santa look wonderful on my tree? My not-so-secret sister Sharon from the Cricut message board made him for me! I love him!


I thought I would show you one of my very favorite ornaments. It was tough to pick just one! I love so many of them! Anyway, my husband and I got married early in November of 1993. My sister gave me this ornament that December WITH the photo in it. I just about cried when I opened it. It was just perfect! I love the oval shape, and I was overwhelmed with her thoughtfulness. I mean getting the ornament was one thing, but getting the ornament WITH the photo in it? That's just fantastic! So, anyway, putting this ornament on the tree each year really puts a smile on my face!

I'm off to blog hop now. Have a nice Sunday! We got about 6 inches of snow last night! It sure looks pretty! Thanks for stopping by!

Your cricut ornament is adorable and know what you mean about the ornament your sister gave you. I love ornaments that have a memory attached to them. Your tree is great, I came to the conclusion a long time ago with tree lights, if something can go wrong it will.

Your tree looks great! And the Cricut Santa is just beyond cute! The ornament from your sister is wonderful! I completely agree-its hard to pick your favorite ornament! Mine would have to be a little Hallmark ornament from last year for Aaron's very first Christmas!
