Holiday Tradition : Decorating the Tree
With the updated colors in our home this year, it was time to also change up the Christmas decor. Gone are the beach cottage-country snow man-red and gold theme. We now have a jewel toned glitzy modern theme. Starting with the Christmas tree, there are new glitter balls large and small ... my favorite being teal! It matches quite nicely with the blue and grey walls and my favorite portrait collection of quotes.
Gone are also the Hawaiian Santas (for now). Instead we have Hallmark ornaments that the girls picked out. Lena was five last year when she picked this one out.
Kaila wanted to show her love of technology as a tween with this cell phone. Her message to Santa will stay recorded on it for all time!
Nani likes "cute" things so this ornament for the year 2010 was perfect.
Celebrating the joy of the season starts nightly with our twinkling lights on the spinning tree. All is more quiet and peaceful in the house when the lights are on for some reason. I have to say how much I enjoy it. Do you turn your lights on to enjoy nightly in your home too?
