Oh Christmas Tree

It’s a not so quiet Friday here with me doing the usual holiday running around today as I'm sure you are too. So I thought I’d post a full length pic of our Christmas tree. I’m such a big kid. I can’t wait until the sun goes down so I can flip on the lights. It’s the best part of the holidays for me. Check out Jack playing on the couch as he knows he's not really supposed to do. Oh well.


I’ve had to move our knitted sweater and sock ornaments because Jack actually takes them off the tree to chew and play with! The nerve.


The dear twins pretty much did all the decorating. The ornaments have mostly been collected since they were born with me adding a new ones for each of them every year. I’m such a corny one with my Sears portraits and my ornaments. I always shrink down our Sears pic and put it on the tree too just to add to the fun/torture. Scary mommy!

One of my favorite holiday movies is Love Actually. It’s not quite for the kiddies with the hilarious making of a pornographic movie and all, but oh so romantic in every way. What's not to love about it with Hugh Grant and Colin Firth? You know I was there all the way.


Have a wonderful weekend. Stay sane. I'll try.

Oh and please scroll down. I still want to hear about your favorite tunes.

Best,
Kwana

Gorgeous decoration, made all the more perfect by the scrumptious Jack!

I too adore "Love Actually". I go back & forth about my favorite scene (aside from those containing Colin Firth), but I think the prize has to go to Hugh Grant shimmying around 10 Downing St.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Oh I just loved this post, Kwana. I felt right at home with you and that adorable Jack by the tree. Love the knitted ornaments and the glow. Have a wonderful weekend xo

PS I LOVE Love Actually. There are so many sweet stories in that movie. I never get sick of it. The end scenes of all the kissing make me cry EVERY TIME!

Jack looks so cute. He totally has the, "Who me? I don't eat the knit socks." look on his face.

The tree looks beautiful.

Love Actually is my favorite Christmas Movie. I love all it! All the story lines together. Love it.

Your tree looks so beautiful. Warm and sparkly.

I went for an artificial black shiny tree this year... and next... and next. Looking for ideas what to do with a black tree! Check it out on my blog, it's pretty strong looking for a fake!

My Notting Hill said...

Love the knitted ornaments and Love Actually! How do you get the You Tube picture to show up large size on your post?

Lady of the Mote said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog,what a beautiful tree,I love those knitted ornaments!Jack is a doll.

Kwana said...

Thanks for your comments Linda and Lady of Mote.

Notting Hill I just went to edit HTML normally and pasted in the YouTube embed code and it came out large. I may have it set on large in photos but I don't think so. It's just the size it came out. I didn't do anything special to it.
