Christmas Tradition.

I got the itch. The Christmas Itch that is. Since we aren't doing Thanksgiving at our house I decided it was okay to pull out all of the Christmas decorations. And Decorate I did. I plan on doing a big post on all of my decorations but here is a little sneak peak. Lucy helped me pull everything out.

Lucy admiring the tree. I bought a bucket of shatterproof ornaments from sams and then mixed them with my glass ornament collection. Brave... maybe... stupid... most likely. So far Lucy has been good around the tree.
My mom started this tradition when we were teenagers. She would buy us an ornament that represented something that happened that year.

School Bus: I was 16. I drove a yellow Xterra which was nicknamed the school bus.
Phone: I was 15. I was always on the phone.
Macy's Balloon: Lucy's 2nd ornament. We went to New York over Thanksgiving to see the parade.
Tiger: I was 17. Bentonville Tiger's.
Razorback: I was 18. First year at the U of A.
Duck: Lucy's First ornament. She quacked all the time.
Groom: Year we were married. I have a whole set of wedding ornaments.
The End.

Ohh, now you've got me in the mood to decorate my house!


I love this wide-eyed picture of Lucy! I think I will put my tree up BEFORE Thanksgiving also!

Mary I want to get my Christmas stuff out too. I have to wait until the day after Thanksgiving. John won't get it down for me until then and I would probably injure myself climbing up into the attic myself.
PS - your little girl sure is cute and getting so big!
