Our Christmas Tree

I love real Christmas trees.  They smell good, and picking out a tree makes for fun memories.  One year our tree stand leaked and completely warped the wood floor.  The next year the tree dried out within 2 weeks.  
Since then we've gone the fake route.  Real ones just do not cooperate with us!


Someday I'd love to have a tree in golds and reds.  All shiny and pretty!  Now we have a hodge podge of sentimental ornaments. I like it that way too.


Some ornaments are priceless to me.
  
These were my Grandma's and love them!  


The hubs has a few sentimental ornaments from his childhood.



Hubs gets a lot of policeman ornaments.  
I wonder why.... : )
 

Every year my kids get their own ornaments to add to the tree.  When they're grown they'll have their own box of ornaments to take when they leave home many, many years from now.
 George is HUGE in our house.  Ladybug and little guy adore that monkey!


Ever since I was little I have been collecting these little houses from Hallmark.  
They're so cute!  They're like mini doll houses.  How could I resist?



Our stockings are hung on our railing since we don't have a fireplace.  
I love these sweater stockings.  They were only $10 at Target!  
Not too bad since most other cute stockings I found were double the price.



If the ladybug and little guy had it their way, all these little lights would be on all day long. 
The excitement in their eyes when the tree lights up is priceless!  I Love it!

I love the little police man ornament! I have the exact same stockings too except they came from Joanns!
