Some of the green ornaments do not read well in a photo.

*I can not get a larger pic to post right now*

Fifi, very pretty!!!

My neighbor came over tonight to see my tree (she's the only person besides us who will ever see it) and I think she was about ready to pass out before I finished showing her each and every S'mores ornament! She lived through it though, what a trooper.

I hang a few precious ornaments from my childhood on my tree right next to my DDs' "first Christmas" ornaments. At 14 and 17, they don't appreciate it the way I do, but it really is special to me. Maybe one day they will do the same.

LOL, I hope it is flavored by the nuts and not the needles!

Pinions are a rugged, little, desert, low mountain, pine that produce great nuts and smell great. I guess they make my little house look huge too.

Maybe it's just good angles, but the room does look huge in the pic.

Isn't it precious?!? I check in at one Christmas shop every year because the owner picks the best ornaments when he goes to market. He starts out classy and gets more adorable and sassy with every margarita he drinks while shopping. lol. I typically only buy one or two but when I really change up my tree, every 5 or 6 years, I prefer to buy from him. I bought one of the owls on Monday and 6 more yesterday I fell in love.

I love your tree, Rou. I have a collection of bird ornaments. Doves, cardinals, peacocks, and now owls. They always look so pretty on a tree.

Place setting. Lily seems to think that the napkins are toys.

I was told years ago that everyone should have at least one bird ornament on their tree. Think it is for good luck.

^ haha! Right? I've had birds nesting on my trees for years.

It is neat that they are supposed to bring luck, but luck or not, I still love them. I could easily be a crazy bird and cat lady. They are amazing little creatures.

I figured since I can't find s'mores ornaments in stores much any more I should start ordering a few every year. The issues is there are SO MANY I WANT. Oh my word, it was so hard to just pick two! I won this auction on ebay and I'm very excited to get the two new additions to the tree!
