Christmas Fun Day 12: The Christmas Tree, Finally!

Hello and Happy Holiday season everyone! In addition to my Advent Reads event this holiday season, I thought I would post earlier in the day with different things we do each day to have fun and celebrate this season. I hope you will join us and also maybe share some of your own traditions or ways you celebrate.
I have always had a fake tree growing up and it always went up the day after Thanksgiving. But this year with Hubby's schedule change to 3rd shift and my work load being so large that I have had to bring work home and do it on my own time to keep up, we didn't get the tree up like usual. So finally this weekend Munchkin & I ran to the store for a new tree (ours was finally not making it after 11 years) and got our tree up and decorated! Munchkin was so thrilled to be able to put the ornaments up and his favorite part is putting the angel on the top.

Our tree is an interesting one, a few years ago when we had Munchkin (not to mention the dog and cat) we decided to replace our fancy breakable ornaments with "child and pet friendly" ones. I do love the complete randomness of all the plush and wooden ornaments.  Munchkin says his favorites are the fire truck, and green monkey (which you can't see at the back).
How do you decorate your tree? Do you have themed decorations or is it random? Do you have a favorite ornament?

    1. Thank you, I love looking at the pictures of him next to the tree each year, it is crazy how much he has grown!

  2. Fun tree! I love all the plushie ornaments!

    1. I really like the wooden ones too, makes it feel like a nice cross between vintage and modern.
