Nothing made my son happier than when he walked into his room and saw his Mindcraft tree. The tree included the base that was a cardboard box sold as a mask. The mask had also been used for his birthday party this year. After the photo I placed black paper behind the eye holes. The ornaments included a few toys but like the torch on the top and a few plastic toys but most items were in a kit that you fold and make paper characters. I also had a few green ornaments from past years that I used. I enjoy making there tiny trees special and completely different each year but hate will not buy items we didn’t already have or won’t use or play with later. My favorite thing is when we can just use toys we already have. No one ever said it has to be made for charismas to put on a tree.

This year we had one of our family Christmas get-togethers after Christmas and were planning to have Company on New Years eve. The decision was made to leave up all the Christmas trees until after. (We all know how much work it is to pack everything up.) I had bought New Years Items such as party glasses, hats, blowers…. the problem was the kids would not leave them alone. I decided to take everything but lights and ribbon off of our small tree in the family room and place the items in the tree. It worked like a charm no one messed with the items any longer and everyone liked selecting their items from the tree on New Years. The tree was topped off with one of the party hats it was so cute.
My weakness is everything christmas and yes that means trees. I love them big ones little ones not so much upside-down ones but you get the point. Well my 9-year-old got a new room this year so that ment a new tree was a must. She requested it be black and silver so she was so excited to find her yellow C and all the frames of her and her friends. Oh and the tree skirt from Target made her day.
