OH Christmas Tree

Our Christmas tree this year had a theme and that was SIMPLE without too much on it! There's such a fine line between the tree being pretty, and overdone, and we were careful to not cross it!

(we think)

After being unwrapped, the tree was pretty skinny LOL It took a couple of days for the branches to come down :)

After awhile it started to look fuller. It had a few holes we creatively filled lol

We replaced our old mini lights with LED ones this year, it made a world of difference! I didnt expect to like it, but I DID! Alot! lol We did some blue lights all around the insides of the brances, and then white lights on the ends of the branches.

I did most of the decorating this year, with the kids, and Scott did the photos, so there arent a whole lot of them :)

Annika managed to get into one photo :)

The tree after decorating! A little tweaking and distributing the ornaments and it was perfect :)

A few ornaments I really liked!




And the tree on Christmas Eve, before the excitement of the next morning :)
