O Christmas Tree..

Our tree is up and decorated. We have a pre-lit artificial one. We had a real one for the first couple of years we lived in Arizona but they dried out quickly and I always worried about fire safety. Artificial is just easier and we can keep it up longer. And I LOVE the pre-lit aspect, as I was always the one to put the lights on the tree and didn't really enjoy it.
We have a mix of ornaments - no one particular style. Just things we have collected over the years. LM made the ones below. The brown ones are an applesauce spice ornament which smells wonderful. The white ones are made from homemade play-doh (she made them in the kids area of our local grocery store).


My great aunt gave LM this ornament on her first Christmas.



My grandma gave me a bunch of these fluffy teddy bear ornaments when I moved out on my own and had my first tree.




The candy cane is a memento from our Polar Express trip last year.


I love sitting in the living room at night with just the lights from the trees.
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy candles shine so brightly!
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy candles shine so brightly!
From base to summit, gay and bright,
There's only splendor for the sight,
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy candles shine so brightly!
