And here is MY tree!

I decided to put up my Christmas tree this week! I tried something new!

My sister put her tree up first (pictured below and you can also see it here on her blog) and she decorated it with this fancy fake snow, it looks SO pretty I had to try it too! I'm proud to be a copy cat :)

So what do you think, the snow doesn't look as natural on my tree as it dose on her tree, but I've been adjusting since I took the picture this afternoon. The one bad thing about the snow is that it doesn't leave a lot of room for the ornaments to really shine, it tends to cover them up, so I had to adjust and then I added more ornaments on top.

I was just thinking about putting my tree up yesterday and wondering if Adam would let me get away with it. Last year was the first year I put it up before Thanksgiving. But I had to plead my case of how busy we were and when would we find the time. Not so much the case this year. I am told I have to wait. But I did open a Nativity last night that was given to us as a gift. I was told to wait until we pull out the tree. But I just couldn't. I love Christmas. This Natvity was hand made by a student who is putting himself through ministry college in Indonesia. It is pretty cool.

Oh Nice Tree! I love the snow. Great idea!

I love it!! Your tree looks so great!! Our ornaments were on before the snow was up so some of them got covered up but we adjusted. One of the things Trent did was put smaller pieces on the smaller branches. I can see you did that too. It looks so pretty! He also tried to get each piece to be shaped like the branch. Doesn't it make your Christmas tree so magical! :) I bet you look at it all the time and feel happy. I love your snowflakes too. Hey I have to tell you that the 1$ store has pretty glittered mini icicles. we put those up to look like they are coming down from the snow and it looks awesome! You don't have a 1$ store so let me know if you want me to get them for you. LOVE YOU!

Hey I spy with my little eye some cute homemade santa ornaments wink wink!
I am so glad you like to put them on your tree. I wish I felt that crafty this year it had been a pretty fun tradition to make some ornaments. But I get too tired...
but I will end up with a baby in the end.
