Christmas Tree #1

That’s right, we have two Christmas Trees in our “itty bitty” apartment.
Here are pictures of our “main” Christmas Tree. . .you’ll have to come back to see pictures of the second Christmas Tree.

This is what we have before the ornaments are put on.
Christmas Tree with white lights. We like plain white, for some reason. Hey, at least we agree on something! πŸ˜‰
(As usual, I have to mention that these pictures are right out of the camera, no time for editing right now.)

Some ornaments pre-tree.
This is one of my most favorite ornaments. I just love it. Brunette with a side ponytail, fuchsia bow in hair and black and fuchsia scarf. SOOO me!!

We have “girly” ornaments.

We have “travel” ornaments.
We try to buy an ornament everywhere we travel to.

We have “teacher” ornaments.
These are all Ric’s, of course. . .I try to buy him a new one every year.
There’s an ice cube teacher, a teacher bear, a stocking full of school supplies, etc., etc., etc.
