Our Christmas Tree 2012

When planning the layout of our home.....14 years ago, we were a very "young" family with 2 small children.
We did not know much in design or what we really wanted. But one thing we agreed on and had enough thought in was our Front Room. Baileyhusband affectionately named it our Christmas Tree Room.

Going to the tree farm is interesting for our family.... it is always a negotiation when all 6 of us go in different directions and have our "Favorite"....

It's a small one this year....just 6-ish feet tall.

 I honestly don't think we have all agreed on which one to get....and in the long run, it doesn't matter, because once it is in our home and is agreed to be the best one yet!!

I have a sort of love affair with nature....birds.....nests......and snowflakes! And my tree is an assortment of all of that.

My children have a tree in our lower level that they get to decorate with all of our "family type" of ornaments (i.e. hodgepodge, theme-y, personalized) and it is perfect for their space! I will show that room on another day this month....

Follow along at The Lettered Cottage to see more Holiday Home ideas....and I will be back in the days to come and will show you the rest of our rooms!

Merry Decorating!
