Gosh, I'm first. That has made my mind go blank!!

What a fine specimen that tree is. And so beautifully decorated.

I hate to say it but we actually have a stash of stolen ornaments - my daughter once went through a phase of nicking one small item off any public Christmas tree we went past. I had no idea till I found them in a box under her bed about 2 years later! Some of them are rather nice. We did lecture her about stealing etc but I thought it was rather a nice idea if it had been a swap rather than a theft!

I kind of get the urge to take ornaments now if I pass a tree in a shopping mall. But I do resist!!

Karen

Beautiful tree!
We do the "homemade" (definition varies) ornament exchange with the kid's friends too! Best idea my neighbor ever had!

Amy

Beautiful tree!!! Got to love the memories!

That tree is Gorgeous! Love the red wall, too. Can you show us more of your home? Now I'm intrigued.

Angie @ KEEP BELIEVING

I have a few dough ornaments myself.

My tree will be quite bare after my kids take all their memento ornaments.

The tree is gorgeous. So nice that you have a tradition of trading home made ones...very smart.
I forgot about those bread dough ones...I must have made them at one point because just looking at it gave me a funny taste in my mouth...salty? very strange.

Lovely tree!

Maybe you have inspired me to get the tree up before the end of the week? Because suddenly my house feels a bit bare...

MamaHenClucks

So pretty! Isn't it fun to remember the years as you are putting the ornaments on your tree? We have a few dough ornaments, too! One from 1975!

Lori

Beautiful! I love the red ribbons. We too give each of the kids an ornament every year for them to take when they're older. And the kids make their own presents for the siblings, which are usually ornaments too.

oooh beautiful! the red ribbons look so rich!

Heidi

We do the same in our house. I just love trees with sentimental/family memories. We have ornaments from my childhood, ones we purchase on vacations, and ones that the boys will take with them when the grow up and fly the coop.

Tina

Beautiful, Jenn! I'm sure mine will be nice too, once we get around to buying one. How many shopping days left? Oh, lordy...

Annie

Your tree is lovely! Absolutely lovely! Now, for what I REALLY want to know... exactly what shade is that paint on the wall BEHIND your tree - because THAT is the red I've been looking for! And it adds so much to the Christmasy feel of this picture!!!

My mom bought me a "we're expecting" dough ornament when I was pregnant with Max. It was already broken the next year!

If I took a photo of my tree? You'd think it was your tree. Right down to the red bows. One difference though? Our handmade ornaments? Foil-covered TP rolls. But still.

Gina

It's a beautiful tree. We are decorating the tree tonight.

Carrie

I love your tree and all the red bows! Currently mine looks awful, I let the kids have free reign over it while decorating last night and I haven't the heart to rearrange just yet . . . but believe me, I WILL! SOON!

mrs. g.

That's a beauty!

shelia

Beau-ti-ful!

So pretty!!!! Our monstroistree fell over on the 2nd day and broke our "first year together" ornament. Whatever. It was ugly anyways. ;)

Janet

he, I have friends who read but never comment, too. Those non-bloggers :-)

Beautiful tree!

magpie

300! You counted? I would be afraid to count.

It's lovely.

debbie

I too have ornaments for the boys...every year I buy two new ones for them to take if and when they ever leave!!

I told Cheri that YOUR tree is what MY tree wants to be when it grows up!!!
Will be getting ours up hopefully today...maybe...it depends on how things go.
I may just sit here and deny that Christmas is coming soooooon for just a little bit longer!!! :-D
