Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree!!!!

Ok. By now you're probably thinking I've got Christmas spirit shooting out of my ass, but I promise this will be the last holiday related post of the season week.

So this year when we moved all our worldly possessions we were smart enough to keep our Christmas tree near the front of our ginormous storage unit. We were not, however, smart enough to also place the two totes full of Christmas decor, including all the ornaments, near the front as well. I took this as a sign our tree needed a new theme.

Now as a child we did not have themed trees. It was your typical all-American hodge podge of all the ornaments we had collected over the years. When I finally left the nest and got my own tree I didn't have enough things to fill it, so the first themed tree was born. A beautiful collection of red and gold ornaments. This motif stayed through 2 trees and 4 Christmases. It really was time to bid it a fond farewell.
This year I present to you my Winter Wonderland tree, courtesy of the Target holiday dept. It turned out great!! A mix of silver, icy blue and white snowflakes.....I'm in tree heaven! And if you look closely you'll see our Bride and Groom, First Christmas Together ornament courtesy of my mother-in-law!



Do you love my cheesy paint effort at trying to make it say "The EyeCanSee's." Haha.
Merry Christmas!!

The tree looks beautiful and I love the icy blue snowflake theme. My tree has always been a random hodge podge (growing up and as an adult). I would love to do a theme this year. I need to find some ornaments on sale! I love the 1st Christmas together ornament…so cute!

So beautiful!!! Target rocks!!! That's were my ornaments are from too. And mine are plastic since the cat thinks they are toys. :) I want to do a silver/blue tree in our next house. Hopefully I'll get one that will allow me two trees. XOXO
