Trim up the tree! This week I’m sharing our tree hunting scavenger hunt and my favorite Christmas ornaments. What I learned from this Christmas Tree adventure is:

1. My kids don’t like my singing.
2. My husband would prefer me to help him with the tree as opposed to video taping him putting up the tree.
3. That’s all:

Today I’m featuring Jenni from Mommy NaniBooBoo! Last week she shared a job she had as a teenager that I’m willing to bet NONE of us have experienced in our lifetime. Modeling in Japan? Mmhmm didn’t think so. Take a look:

    Jenni’s modeling is mighty impressive as is your tree. Your singing? Not so much. Oh, and damn you and your fun prompts that made me cry this week! xoxo

  2. says

    Your tree is awesome. It’s a lot of work putting up the tree but seeing all those ornaments and memories… totally worth it.

    Also, did Pat suggest you sing something from Taylor Swift at the end… he knows. ;-)

  3. says

    It took 2 hours for my less than 4-minute video to load on YouTube! Yikes! Oh well, it’s worth it! Just like tree shopping with the fam! My kids frequently ask me to stop singing too…

  4. says

    Beautiful tree! I gave up on live trees years ago, though. I’m notorious for killing living things. Except for my children. Somehow they are still alive.

    Uhhgg… You made me cry! Just the words grandma and Christmas make me cry… She was so important to everything Christmas growing up..I sear she made it so special so we could never forget her…. Glad you have great memories of your grandmother :)

    I *may* have teared up a tiny bit over Grandma and her ornaments.

    Although lately, we have gone the fake tree route, as of this year I have declared my husband in charge of putting it up (not the ornaments, GOD NO!) because for some reason, whenever he puts it up, all the lights work. Whenever I put it up – those @*$#!(^ lights NEVER work.

  7. says

    Wow, that’s a massive tree! I love it! And those sweet angels, what loving reminders of your grandma! And Jenni’s exercise poses were awesome!! =)

  8. says

    Even though you were talking about something totally serious, I couldn’t help but smile because it’s so hard for me to watch you talk about serious things. :) My kids pick out ornments every year and it’s fun to think back about when each ornament was bought, as we decorate our tree.

  9. says

    Timber…. That’s awesome. We always had a live tree, or one that we had killed, when I was growing up, but we do fake now. Less pine needles and sap.
