Wiggles {O Christmas Tree}


Happy 1st day of December everyone!  Oh I love the season of advent -- awaiting the birth of our precious Savior.  David and I got our tree up on Sunday (see some of our past trees HERE and HERE) and I so love it.  Our ornament collection is quite eclectic - some from friends to help us out on our first Christmas, some from wal-mart just to take up bare space, wedding presents, and then there are LOTS of puppy ornaments.  The reason for all the puppies?  Each year my mom gives us all an ornament that is part of a series.  Usually a series will only run a few years, but apparently not the puppies -- I've received a puppy ornament since 1991! (thats a lot of puppies).  But we love our tree and have so much fun each year as new things are added.

New Music
(what we listened to while decorating)
Sufjan Stevens :: Songs for Christmas

  13. I know a group of gals who have been exchanging ornaments with each other since high school (and we're in our 40s). I think by now they must have a tree just for these. I'm not part of that group but I think it's a fun thing - like your doggy tradition.

  24. Beautiful tree. We have a theme as well. My husband has been getting Santa's from his family every year since he was 10. Last year we decided to make nothing but a Santa tree.

  26. Thanks so much for including me in your list of wiggles for the week! I totally appreciate it.

    My husband and I have a tradition of buying a new ornament from our travels each year. Our tree is really eclectic, but each ornament tells a great story.

    Thanks again!
