O Christmas Tree

It took me 3 days but I finally got the tree up. My picture turned out very blurry and I can see some holes I need to fix, but at least it's up. I want to start a tradition of making an ornament every year for/with Natalie. Obviously I'll be making it for her for the next several years but I want it to eventually be something we do together. If anybody has any ideas for this or knows of a place where I can get a kit for something like this, please let me know.

Our good friend Jeff gave Natalie her 1st two ornaments. They are from the Hallmark collection and so cute! Such a great addition to the tree. Thanks Jeff!

Natalie turned 2 months today. I called this place about making an appointment to have her picture taken and the soonest they could schedule me was December 21st. However they do take walk ins so I took my chances and went down there this afternoon. But no luck.. they wouldn't even let me "walk in" they are so busy. So we went ahead and made an appointment for the 21st. They print the pictures in store, so from what I understand we'll get them back that day. Talk about just in time for Christmas..

That black and white pic of you and Natalie almost looks 'Angelic' somehow...I guess it's because you two are wearing white. Cool!

What a great picture of you and Natalie. It's really a sweet one. And that's a wonderful idea about making the ornaments each year. I'll put some thought into some ideas.

I'm so glad you gor the tree up. I can tell it's pretty even though it's blurry. I love the picture of you and Natalie. You wouldn't like laundry so much if you had to do it at my house. :o) I love chicken cordon bleu too. Yum!
