My Christmas Cheer

This weekend we got our Christmas tree and finished decorating the house.
I have a few pictures to share with you on this Wordful Wednesday.

The red letters in front spell the word "HOPE".

These letters spell "JOY".

I love having a fireplace to decorate! =)

This is a very special ornament; it's the oldest one on the tree. It was given to me by my very best friend Danielle when I was 16 years old, so I've had it for 21 years! And it's been on my tree every one of those years.

{I noticed THREE things that drove me insane after I uploaded these pics to Facebook; my clock was crooked, the trees behind the word "HOPE" were uneven, and there weren't enough purple ball ornaments on the tree. These things have since been remedied, since I am ALL KINDS OF NEUROTIC OCD.}

Happy Wordful & Wordish Wednesday!

I so wish I had a fireplace. I am having a heck of a time trying to figure out where to put my stocking holders this year without my 1 year old grabbing the stocking & then having the VERY heavy holder come crashing on her head.
I love the old ornament, my favorite ones are the sentimental ones!
Ok so your OCD thing totally cracked me up.

Very festive. I didn't notice anything 'wrong' with your pix until you pointed it out. They look lovely.

Looks great! I didn't notice any of the "problems" that you did, but I guess you look more closely when they're yours. Ido that far too much. :)

Our fireplace totally sucks and can't really be decorated! I love how you did yours...all your stuff is so decorative!

I'm totally OCD too...I've been trying to rearrange all our decorations and I'm still not satisfied!

Very festive. :)

Usually the oldest ornaments are our favorites for good reason.

I love the way you decorated!

Looks awesome! We are in the process of decorating which is why the lack of posts!
