Christmas Tree

I was looking at our Christmas tree last night and I said to O "When we have kids we need to get a real tree. I want it to smell good!" O looked at me and said "No way! I don't want to kill a tree every year. I mean, killing a living tree doesn't feel very Christmasy to me." So cute, and also true.


I love the light that the tree gives off. O is always mentioning that we should drap string lights all over the place (like a college dorm room), because he likes the soft light. Of course that is not allowed, but I do really love the tree lights.


Glitter bird. So sparkly


Groucho Mouse. Love this little guy.


 Santa on his arse with ice skates. Also a missing eyebrow. We will be sticking with your white tree for a long time, and maybe supplementing with some garlands. I got us a couple of new ornaments this year and I just love seeing my old favorites every year too. I got a vintage glass squirrel ornament to commemorate the several poor souls that Moxie has eaten over the year.


How cute is this whale? I love the glitter spout.

  2. YES, we're white tree people too!! Ha ha, and I know what you mean about the light, it totally glows! We have two fake trees, my white pretty minimalist one, and a green one in our rec room that has fun colourful ornaments and in years to come can be covered with homemade ornaments too. The only thing it's missing is a super awesome santa like the one you have, now I'm going to search for one, ha ha!

  3. I'm not kidding when I say Groucho Mouse is cool enough for his very own post dedicated to his cuteness. Where did he come from??

  5. You're hilarious. I love that you have an ornament dedicated to your pet's penchant for eating small backyard animals. I'm sure the grieving family members are peering through your windows in appreciation. ^^
