Oh Christmas Tree....

I'm linking up with My French Country Home to show off our tree this year! :)

It's an artificial tree that my parents have had for as long as I remember...but we hadn't used it in the house for years.  A few times, we put it on the front porch and decorated it there.  Now I've adopted it until (1) Mom decides she wants it back or (2) We decide to invest in a newer one.

This is a cell phone picture, but the lights stand out really well, so I like it! :)

I managed to find the star at the Dollar Tree a little while back and I loved it because it was orange, so it went wonderfully with my blue ornaments from Hobby Lobby.  The rest of the tree is decorated with Fireman-themed ornaments, Coffee-themed ornaments, a few Auburn ornaments, a few "1st Christmas" ornaments, a few gifted ornaments, as well as some older ornaments from when Adam was a little kid. :)

I think my project between now and next Christmas is to make a tree skirt.  Now it's a little too late, because the sad little skirt we have is already covered in presents...but next year I should have a pretty one!! :)
