Some of my online buddies have been sharing pictures of their Christmas trees and special ornaments that they hang on it. So we finally got our tree this weekend and I gt some photos for you.

This of course is the tree all complete. We have a really pretty angel on top of the tree (sorry i cut her off some) Funny story about the angel though. Every year we have some sort of trouble with the angel and end up buying a new one. Usually it will not stay up on the tree. This year though we completly lost it. Not sure were it went since we live in a small apartment. Oh well the way it goes with us this one probably will not be there next year.

The ornaments that I am sharing are all homemade. This first one was of Sam when he took an enrichment program. (fancy way to say preschool mixed with gymnastics) The teacher that year had us all donate pictures and she turned our little ones into angels.
On Gabe's first christmas I had each of the boys make the reindeer using their hands and feet. This one is of Gabe's, he had such cute little feet.
I have also tried to make a homemade ornament each year for the kids. Here is the Gingerbread man that I made a couple of years ago.
This one is probaly my favorite that I made. I made this snowmant last year. It is just popsicle sticks painted up. I added on the googly eyes for the fun of it. This year I just cut out simple stars from salt dough and painted it up, then put their names on it.
This final on was made by Gabe last year when he went to preschool. He glued all of the buttons to the frame. I think that it so cute.

I hope that everyone has enjoyed my little tour. My family wishes all of yours a happy holidays!!

I highly recommend the snowman. I actually got the idea from oriental trading. They had kits but I thought that I could make my own. They were very fun and are my favorites.
