our tree



in christmases past, i've been all about keepin' it classy with the white lights/red bows/silver bulbs christmas tree decor.  apparently having a kid has changed me.  we went crazy with all sorts of lights & fun ornaments this year.

some of the ornaments we've had for a while, some are new.  here's the rundown of the ones with some meaning behind 'em:



snowman: i painted this little guy last week.  i'm crafty. • wsu football snowman: gift from co-worker last year • star: sam & i got this tree topper the first year we were married • felt "p": gift for parker from jill & corbin.  p-ray loves it!  • wsu cougar snowglobe: gift from sam's mom, go cougs. • giraffe: parker's pick for 2010.  he loves him some giraffes. • painted polka-dot ornament: i painted this last week too. it's pretty awesome. • glass thingy: gift from my aerobics instructor!  i drop & do ten every time i look at it.  • bulb w/ picture: gift from heather.  that's p-ray's picture in there. cute, right? i know. heather's the bomb.  • fox: my pick 2010, because why not? • baby shoe: gift for parker from the mother-in-law • "faith" star: got it as a hand out at church last week.  gotta remember the reason for the season.

i love all our mish mashed ornaments & i am super excited to add to our hodge podge tree every year.
mostly because of this little guy.


he's so cute.  and helpful.  ok, mostly just cute.

  1. Wonderful photos. I haven't gone for a non-themed tree in forever. This year I decided that next year our tree will be non-themed. Seeing your tree I now know for sure I want the "hodge podge" look next year.

  3. Our tree is a hodge podge, too. I think it's much more meaningful & I look forward to decorating it every year to see what memoeries each ornament brings.

  6. I love your photos! :) Our tree is 1/2 sci-fi (my husband loves his star wars/star trek) and 1/2 my random stuff :) Trees that look too perfect are blah.

  21. Fun pictures! Our tree was dominately white with a sophisticated feel until we had kids. Now its all colored lights, funny ornaments they help pick out and our 4 yr old likes stuffing all our Christmas cards in the tree for decoration. I love it more than ever! Having kids brings Christmas to a whole new level of awesomeness! Merry Christmas!
