O Christmas Tree

G and I found a live Norfolk Pine at the grocery today that only sent our groc budget over by $6 so we got it.  Yes it is a small tree but we haven't had a Christmas tree decorated in the house in years due to the existence of animals and little room. 

But G cleaned off her train table and we made room. Then we put ornaments that had been given to us over the past few years or made by G which never made it back into the actual Christmas boxes and G also made some new ones like the angry bird ornament.  She drew out and colored several for the tree.  Then I wrapped a few gifts so now at least that area of the house is feeling a bit more like Christmas.  Now the goal is to keep the tree alive for a few years then plant that bad boy at our house or my parent's house. 

Of course one ornament had to get broken and that by me.  It was an ornament G made last year with her thumb prints on it.  Why was it made in glass?  Why not plastic?  Oh well.

Love your tree, and the fact that you are going to plant it later and Miss G gets to watch it grow! Home made ornaments are the best kind. We love the one Miss G made for us and it gets a special place on our tree every year. :o)
