The Ornaments We All Have on the Tree

We all had them: BIG plans to have a fantasy Christmas tree when we were grown-ups.

Our Fantasy Christmas Tree had a theme, was full of handblown glass ornaments from Europe, glittered with white lights, or was perfectly wrapped in wired organza ribbon.

Then we have kids, and…well…that’s that.

We all end up with the same exact ornaments on our trees, whether we wanted them on there or not.

These are some of those ornaments.

    OH did I need this laugh right now. I was just telling my hubby the other day, “when I grow up, I want one of those beautiful matchy gorgeous trees…” then we looked at each other last night and said – our tree makes us laugh and smile especially when we see the ones the kids made – they are a hot mess – reindeer popscicle stick ornaments, felt ornaments with a photo hotglued on, clothespin reindeer with a red pom pom for a nose…all of them…priceless. Oh – don’t forget the giant darth vader – he isn’t even wearing a santa hat for crying out loud. I love every single one of them because they are a typical representation of the chaos that is our life with three boys. xoxox love you girl!

    Ohhhhh….how I needed to laugh!

    At this moment, I’m STILL decorating our tree, just came across ornaments my kids made in school and started to cry. Pulled out a construction paper Christmas stocking covered with glitter that my son made when he was 7. Written on the back is…”Love you Mom, from Anthony”

    My son’s name is John.
