Now that you have put all of your Christmas decorations away and maybe set out some snowman decorations (or have a snow tree like my mom!), do you want to see some pictures of our Christmas decorations?
I wish I were kidding.
But I'm not.
It's sad how long it has taken me to finally put this whole post together, but I do hope you enjoy them! Every year, I take pictures of all of the Christmas decorations I have, but each year, I could seriously spend hours doing so! This is a big combination of pictures taken throughout the Christmas season. Some were taken before Christmas (as you'll notice we still have gifts under the tree), and some were taken just as we were taking them all down.
This is "my" tree. This is, I believe, the second tree I got growing up (which explains the crookedness of it.....it also leans, haha.) It has all of the ornaments on it that I made in pre-school and elementary school, and church, all of the Hallmark ornaments I picked out when I was little, hand painted ornaments by mom....tons of stuff! This is my "growing up Mallory tree" I guess you would say. Unfortunately, this pathetic looking tree has bit the dust, and as soon as I take the lights off (yes, this tree is still up..but ONLY with the lights on...), we will say farewell to this poor tree. There is already a replacement, though! ;)
Love our little snowman light Aunt Sherrie made :)
These next two pictures were taken before Christmas..
I took these pictures at the end of December/beginning of January. You can see how much our tree apparently went through, but looking at the star that probably would've fallen off very soon! haha
I always put out all of my Christmas books! Everything from ones I used to read when I was little, all the way to my Miller & Rhoads Santaland book! (Signed, by the way ;)
Sorry this next one's so dark.
On the left is a picture of me outside the Christmas store in Downtown Disney.
On the right is our picture with Santa in either 2007 or 2008....I'm leaning towards 2007, but I can't remember!
Aunt Sherrie bought Maple this cute rug :)
And, what's a blog post without a couple pictures of my baby?
This is one of my favorite Christmas decorations! I love the silver, shimmery tree, with the brightly colored ornaments!
In the frame below is one of our Christmas pictures from 2009!
I also really love the tree in our bedroom!
(Ignore my balled up, falling apart tacky Christmas shirt from the Pendleton Christmas, haha.)
There's a king and queen in this picture...
(Sorry, lame, but I couldn't resist, haha)
I love burning these two candles at the same time! So Christmasy!
I have a Christmas tree and glitter problem. I don't know how Matt deals with it.
And, perhaps, my favorite Santaland picture of all time!
And, hope I don't disappoint you, but I still have a few more Christmas posts up my sleeve. ha! If I tried to put everything into one post, I'm pretty sure I would break my computer (it froze up enough as it is just getting this post up!).
