Olly Tree time

As a child I grew up going to our family's farm on the weekends and for holidays. It was 6,500 square feet of pure childhood bliss. This wasn't an ordinary farm either. My grandmother decorated it as if it came from the pages of Country Living magazine. At Christmas time is was nothing short of gorgeous. Garlands and bells wrapped along a staircase and circular banister. There were different themed trees in every room. There had to have been more than 10 trees. Angels, stockings, wreaths, poinsettias....it was a Christmas haven. So It was no wonder that my sister and I grew up thinking it was normal to have our own Christmas tree in our bedroom. At night when we were tucked under the covers the sweet soft glow of our tree lights seemed so magical. It is so important that I create that tradition and spirit for my little man too. He has had some very special tree's in the past, and this year I was determined to make it special as well.

In 2010 this was his first tree at 2 months old...


Last year he had his first tree cutting adventure...


And this year his tree sparkles with glitter penguins, polar bears, and reindeer.





**All ornaments on this years tree are from Target**

What a lucky kiddo. Do you do any special holiday traditions with your kids? I'm always looking for great ideas.

  1. I love that photo of Oliver and his tree on the roof - it's seriously so awesome... gets me every time.

    there's something about the glow of christmas lights agains green boughs that make sleeping all the more peaceful. We put a mini-tree in Saige's room for all her 'special' decorations ;) Growing up we had a real tree with all the sentimental and tacky ornaments and a fake tree that was super fancy and displayed in our picture window for all the neighbours to see (and envy) - haha. xo

  3. Love the tree in the bedroom! That kid of yours is so cute, love, love! I have a tiny table top tree in my kiddo's room. It's just got plain white mini lights on it and a silver star topper. I plan on moving on to a bigger tree when he gets a bit bigger. There's a spot above his dresser that I change out seasonally (christmas, valentines, easter, etc). When we are in between big holidays I have a porcelain plaque with a cute quote on it that I hang there.

  7. I think our tradition of pajama Christmas is kind of different. For about 5 years now everyone wears clean and new pajama's over for Christmas day. It's pretty fun, and very comfortable.

  9. The picture of your son hauling the tree is just fantastic- I totally copied your idea for our Christmas card picture this year.
