7 Days Until Christmas!
Sorry I've been gone a couple of days but I'm back and with some pictures (can you guess) of my tree. Now in the Christmas meme I did it asked what kind of tree do I do and mine is what some would call the kiddy tree. On my tree I have ornaments that my mom gave me that were mine growing up and of course every year I buy a new ornament or two for the kids.
And here is our Christmas tree, now I know it's not loaded down with tons of ornaments and there are two reasons... 1. I just knew my Monkey would get into every single one and he has, 2. I got tired of dragging out all the ornaments. But hey it's up and I love looking at it and so do the kids.
Her colors are ivory and gold, but she's thinking of changing it for next year, or maybe adding burgundy to add a little more color. But in case you're wondering when the kids were growing up she had a kid tree but when as they got older she started collecting new ornaments to have a themed tree.
Ok so here's my question do you think it's more personal to have the "kid" tree or themed tree and which do you prefer. Also when your kids become older do you think you will keep your kid tree or do something totally different.
Here is my answer-I love both kind of trees but I love the kid tree because for me I have ornaments from when I was growing up and all the memories come flooding back to me. Also now that I have kids of my own every year I get ornaments that mean something to them. Like one year it was care bears and another it was spongebob; but what I really can't wait for are when they make ornaments and gifts at school like I did. So I guess when they are grown I will still have the kiddy tree filled with multi-color lights and packages wrapped in any kind of paper of my choosing. But with that being said I may buy a 4 ft. tree and have it themed but who knows. Or I could do what my mil does-she had a kid tree in the veranda and then her main themed tree in the living room-but man that's a lot of work. Anyway let me know what you think and if you still have some shopping to do because there is only 7 days until Christmas.
