My Christmas Tree


So here's our Christmas tree. I love it, but I haven't decorated it yet and I don't know that I will this year. Clint put on a few ornaments, but it's not what I would like to say "finished." I am just glad that Santa has a place to leave some gifts.


I love it when Clint holds Noah - I love seeing a proud Daddy holding his baby, it makes me smile. Noah was super cute just staring and trying to smile - I know Doctors tell you they can't smile this soon and it's just "gas" but he was really smiling for Clint - so cute!


I have this picture hanging on my wall - my Dad surprised me with it this week. This is the one picture that I loved as a kid - whenever my mom pulled it out and hung it over the mantel I knew Christmas was close. It's one of those pre-printed canvases that you add thread to. My mom made this years ago and I told her that this picture is the one thing I wanted to remember her by, she surprised me by giving it to me now. I love it. Micah told me he wanted to go into that place - pointing to the picture. So cute! I want to jump right in myself.


Oh, and Santa - I would like this in my stocking. Just so you know!

WOW... That's what I call a "show stopping" tree!!! It is beautiful and sometimes less is best! It looks like it fits very well in your new home and baby Noah ties it all together. Peace to you and yours this Holiday Season!!!

Beautiful photos! Love your tree. Noah & Daddy together is priceless. And the pix from your childhood, and now your Dad gave it to you, brings tears to my eyes with the loving sentiment & memories for you that is behind it.

Judi- I can't believe that picture is at your house now. Now I really have to come and visit. Can't wait to see you! <3

Your tree is so big and gorgeous!

And I believe babies CAN smile that young. Both my babies did, and people told me it wasn't real, it was just gas, but I think us mommies can tell the difference. The smiles aren't the same!

Less is more - I think your tree looks perfect as it is and needs nothing else. Happy Holidays.

Any mother will tell you that yes, when a baby looks directly into your eyes, and you look directly into their eyes, that the smile in real and not gas.
Your tree is beautiful, and huge! How fun to have a nice new home big enough for your growing family.

Love the tree and what a great stitched picture from your Mom.

The best is, yes, Noah and Daddy. Beautiful picture.

Enjoy the season.

We do not live in a two story house and even when we did, we did not have a wonderful railing like that to decorate. So pretty.

I think it's rubbish what they say about babies not smiling and it just being gas.

My little one smiled at Grandma as soon as we brought her home, about 14 hours after being born!
