Christmas Tree 2012

candy cane tree


I love Christmas! My girls love Christmas! Kids just make it so much more fun right?!  I enjoy decorating our Christmas tree in different colors/theme every year.  Let me share that I shop after Christmas every year.  Hobby Lobby has a 90% off sale right after the New Year.  I literally go to the store every day from January 3rd on so I don’t miss it.  I have been collecting decorations over the past 16 years.  I go to yard sales, Goodwill, and other thrift stores.  I find so many cute things for cheap cheap cheap!!  Nothing better than getting a good bargain!  This is the only way I can afford to decorate our tree in different colors every year.  Yeah…my family thinks I’m crazy…..LOL

Theme for this year-  Candy Cane

Here’s the tree BEFORE:

Here’s the tree AFTER:

I love how it turned out.  I found the striped poinsettas at Michael’s on Black Friday for 70% off!!!  Score!

I like tons of ornaments and picks!

Xmas decor

I don’t like traditional stars for the top of the tree……I usually end up doing my own thing with picks…’s super fun!  You can see the topper from last year HERE.

I got these monogrammed ornament at Kirkland’s years ago on clearance……I love it!

While I was going through my totes, I found this ornament exactly like this from 12 years ago!!! HAHAHA!!!  I used to straighten my hair all the time.  Do you have a “First Christmas Together” ornament?

Our 1st Christmas

The big candy canes are from Hobby Lobby.  I did snap the top of them because they had a hook to hang them.  I just positioned them to look like a heart.

And there you have it, my friends!!!!
