How Lovely Are Your Branches?!

My favorite Christmas decoration is, by far, our Christmas tree!  I put it up the 2nd weekend in November.  We decided to go pre lit last year and we’re never looking back.  However, we may have to sooner than later because this thing stays lit ALL.THE.TIME.  It’s just so dang pretty when it’s the only thing lit in the house!

christmastree1 I love it!  It hasn’t really changed much since last year…pretty much looks the EXACT same…but this year we’ve added a few new ornaments.  My new tradition is to buy both boys an initial ornament at the beginning of every Christmas season.  These are just a couple I found this year…


Presh.  And both boys LOVE finding the letters…  My other new tradition is to have my boys pick out their own ornaments {only 1 each} at the start of the season.  My 1-year-old was going NUTS over the airplane, so that’s his little pick, and my 3-year-old opted for the train since I strongly discouraged him to put down the pink high heel ornament :)


And I found all these at Hobby Lobby…my absolute FAVORITES.  I’m missing a pic of the cutest one…a gold tree with letters that spell out “Joy, Noel, Hope, Peace, & Believe”.  I LOVE it!

  1. Looks beautiful! I'm thinking prelit is the way to go,next year might be the year where I don't have to put 700 lights on a tree by hand. Ugh.

  2. I love the color combo you chose for your christmas tree, it looks fabulous!
