Oooo Christmas Tree.

So I know some pictures of our tree were up from our party but I figured our tree is so awesome that it deserves its own post again. Last year we had a short and stubby guy and this year our tree is quite tall and skinny and I'm a fan.

check that out!
oh and all our wrapped up presents too.

all lovely and lit up.

Isn't it a cutie? One day I'll be able to take a decent picture, haha. And then of course we've got to highlight some of our ornaments this year.

my friend Katrina gave this awesome ornament to me
on Saturday and you can't see it but it has
"Matt and Katelin 2009" on it, making it the first
ornament we have with our name on it! squeee to cuteness!

a new globe ornament I got at Crate and Barrel.
a beautiful way to remind us to travel and go places.

a BBQing snowman, one of Matt's favorites.
love it.

the newest nutcracker ornament to add to my collection.

Isn't it grand? I love having it all lit up and making our apartment smell evergreen fresh. Did you get a tree this year?

And um how is tomorrow Christmas Eve already? Ah! I love it.

happy wednesday!

Claire and I went looking for a tree...realized we did not know where the stand was...went home, found it...then never bought the tree.

We have all the other decorations up...just no tree.

I hate that!

Gorgeous tree! We didn't get one this year. My parents hate going through the whole decorating part and all that. :( We also don't decorate because one of my close friends is DEATHLY afraid of nutcrackers and we hate to scare him. I don't think he'd be a big fan of your collection, haha.

Yay!! I love ornaments with my name on it. Probably cause being a Jew, I didn't have any until Dave got me one last year! :) There's a married couple ornament I've got my eye on, but I won't let myself buy it until we're officially married! Or until it goes on super sale after Christmas. :)

Love the tree :-)
We go to this big Christmas store and buy personalized ornaments every year. We buy one that has the whole family and then we let each girl pick one they like. My oldest daughter played soccer this year and she picked a soccer player. We even had her number and name put on it. Love it!

Ooo! I love getting new ornaments each year. Though, I am barred from purchasing more than one a year now. My husband thinks I went Xmas crazy this year. Glad to see you appreciate ornament-cuteness too.

I always go home, which is 8 hours away, for Christmas, so I never have any Christmas decorations at my apartment at all. I am actually surprised when I go to friend's house, and see Christmas trees... it's like I expect them to only be at parents' houses.

Awww I love all your ornaments! I wasn't going to do a tree this year- but then I saw all the ornaments I had and just wanted a place to showcase them :)
