Christmas '08

Here are a few pics of my tree this year. I went with the country theme...much to my girls chagrin. They wanted their usual ornaments...Mickey, Pooh...I let them chose a few of their favorites and hung them on the back and side of the tree. That actually worked great, they got the tree they wanted and so did I.

I used a twig star filled with apples, pip berries, and pine cones. We made some really cute ornaments out of clear glass balls and filled them with potpourri, tinsel and various other things. We then hung raffia like you normally would tinsel. I thought it turned out pretty cute!

Cinnamon Sticks tied with Raffia.

I found these adorable ornaments at the Dollar Tree, as well as the other red glittery ornaments.

It looks really pretty with the lights off...

We still used our traditional "toys" under the tree. I don' think the girls will ever outgrow doing that. I still can't find my box of snowmen, they have been missing for two Christmas' now. I think they have gone AWOL.
