Christmas Tree and Mantel!

We got our tree this weekend! It has been a tradition since I can remember as a little girl going out and picking out a Christmas Tree in Aruba! One of my favorite things to do! So every year I get VERY excited when this time of year comes! We went to Home Depot to get our tree, we have for years.. I was a little disappointed when we got home the tree was SMALLER than the previous 2 years in this house... bummer... it still turned nice. I want to get a few new ornaments and maybe add some ribbon to it. The house is a mess right now.. so I will add more photo's later!

My grandma's youngest brother passed away in Holland this week.. so I am sending a card to his wife & family. I also have a friend who's birthday is next week!

Some misc Christmas Cards...
