Tree Decorating Contest!!

Christmas is my absolute favorite time of year. I love pulling out all the decorations and putting them all over my house. Heck, I even love “floofing” the tree – the job no one else in this house seems to want.

An Island Life is having a tree decorating contest! How much fun is that?!

In years past, our tree has always had a pottery-barn-esque flair. Ribbons, pearls, shiny ornaments, and even photo frames have graced our tree. However, this year, I’ve turned it into the kids’ tree. You see, every year, the kids each get a special ornament. That way, when they grow up and move out, they will already have a set of ornaments to help trim their very first tree. With so many kids, and so many special ornaments, they were overtaking the tree and didn’t look right with the fancy tree trimmings. So, this year, I did away with the fancy-smancy, and just made it FUN.

So, here’s our Christmas tree:

Yes, you did spot Tinkerbell in our tree! That’s Lucy’s special ornament from last year.

And, if you have Tinkerbell, you simply MUST have Peter Pan & Captain Hook, too!
(We actually have Peter Pan, Captain Hook, a smaller Tinkerbell, Wendy, John, Michael, Mr. Smee, & the Crocodile. The set was Zander’s special ornament last year.)

And, we cannot forget the Reason for the season:

(No, baby Jesus isn’t in the manger yet. He appears on Christmas morning.)
