O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree

If anyone recalls, two years ago we got the kids a small Christmas tree to decorate any way they wanted and keep in their room. We have always kept it in Jake's room simply because he had more space and the kids tend to congregate there more often than Jadyn's room. But this year, that became unacceptable, as Jadyn felt left out not having a Christmas tree in her room too. So however ridiculous it may be, we have now become a THREE Christmas tree family.

Even more ridiculous is that I figured if she was going to have a tree for her room, we might as well do something befitting of her decor. So if you are ever wandering around all the decorations at Wal-Mart and you stumble across the super cheesy bubble gum pink tree and wonder who would ever have such a gaudy thing in their house, well you can just think of the Funny Noses because we do.

Jadyn of course loves it:

And here is Jake posing with his super traditional tree, which is almost more fun decorating then our family tree because we get to see all the handmade and gifted ornaments we have accumulated throughout the years and talk about what makes each one special:

And finally here is a shot of our new family tree. With the new house and more room we were able to upgrade by about 3 feet:

So 2010 will forever go down in history as the year we became a three Christmas tree family. I guess letting the kids have their own tree just became one of our unique family traditions.

I love it, Jenn! What a great Christmas tradition. And I especially love Jadyn's tree. Too cute. I've been looking for a mini-tree with mini-ornaments that I can put in our advent calendar. Maybe if I find one, I'll get two of them!

Oh, I love that tree. I want one. Jadyn's tree that is. We have talked about doing two trees, but our house is too small. now, I really want to.
