O Christmas tree!


Hi there! Did you get your Christmas tree yet? We did! Last year was our first Christmas without one and we resorted to an artificial tabletop model that my daughter's boyfriend gave her. Not the same...

Several containers of trees were rejected because of pest infestation, and sent back to the mainland so a lot of island folks were without trees. We had to put our presents around the tree and it just wasn't the same. No pine scent, too.

So this year, my hubby made sure to get a tree after the second shipment hit the stores. We'll probably decorate it tomorrow and start putting our gifts under it.


Here's a card made with a Pure Innocence digi from Heather Ellis' Digistampcharacters. She's such a cutie and got herself a little tree, too. 

I noticed that the girl is getting older and appears to be losing her baby fat. Doesn't she look a little slimmer?

Hope you're having a great weekend. I'm off to hunt for our box of ornaments! Thanks for stopping by...

  4. Such a sweet card! We had to resort to a "fake" tree after our boys left and the two of us could no longer manage a real one. I do miss the smell! I'm thinking of trying to talk DH into a small real tree, but I already know he won't go for it :) He's a little kid at heart and loves our huge one!

  12. She's super cute, but I did think she is a bit taller these days! I like how you have her growing up, it's a good explanation.
    I don't know why, but I never thought about you guys having to have your Christmas trees shipped in! I must have believed that Santa just brought them with him to you all on the islands! ;)
