new tree!

Man it sure has been awhile since I have blogged....sorry if you've missed me...lol!  Life just gets busy and I haven't put a high priority on blogging.  I do miss it sometimes though...it's a good creative outlet.  So to jump back in I thought I would show you what has been keeping me busy lately.

We knew moving into our new house that come Christmas time we would need a new tree....due to the 11 foot ceilings in our living room.  So we have been on the lookout for a 9 foot tree that we like.  After exhausting all the stores in town we went online and found this one at Sears...
It is a pre-lit Frasier Fir....I love that it is real looking, without the mess {or smell} of a real tree.  Sorry but I am not a fan of pine smell. 

Next we knew we would need more ornaments...so another search began.  We ended up going with pink, green and teal assorted balls and bell shaped ornaments from Wal-mart. They were a great deal and add some great color to the tree!  I used our existing snowman ornament collection too.  But I wanted to add a few more new ones.  AND you know that I love owls...so I was super excited when I found these at Target...

They were the perfect colors to coordinate with our new "bright" ornaments.  So our snowman collection is becoming an owl and snowman collection!  ;)

I know we haven't gotten through Thanksgiving yet, but we go out of town to be with our families and I just like to get a jump start on getting the tree ready for the Christmas season! 

Do you have your tree up yet?  What kind of color/ornament theme to you use?
