This quote is SUCH a powerful message, and when I came across this quote on pinterest this morning... I KNEW it had to be today's quote! :) It definitely made my morning a little brighter.
So, how was your weekend? I finally did some Christmas decorating, and we put our tree up. This year we bought a new tree. Not as tall... but it is flocked! I'm crazy I know. I went looking for a white tree this year, always wanted one and Jaydon was finally going to a "allow me" to. ;) Only I couldnt find any white trees! I called Jaydon up from Craft Warehouse and told him that I needed him to talk me out of buying something. Only when he heard I was looking at a 9' tall tree... he did anything but talk me out of it. It was gorgeous.... but sadly they only had the floor model left. So, I brought home the 6.5" tall flocked tree. It is definitely a charlie Brown looking tree... but oh so cute. :)
The girls are so fascinated with the "snow." It is a little messy, but not as bad as I was expecting. :)
see how sad it was before a little fluffing? :)
The tags and everything were coated!
That night we decorated the tree, and after the girls went to bed I had to tend to a few things:
Journey seems to think there is strength in numbers... I think this poor branch thought otherwise! :)
p.s. the birds and star are ornaments I made a couple years ago. See more on that here.
I didnt take a picture after I strung more lights and finished the tree... will have to do that and update the blog. I always enjoy reading back on my old blog posts. I've never been good at keeping a journal, and this blog has definitely helped in that dept.
So, I'm curious? Have you, or someone you know owned a flocked tree? Did you regret it? Right now, I'm not regretting it... but we'll see how I feel after Christmas? :)
Happy Holidays guys!
