Ornament Swap and Decorating our Tree

I was so excited to participate in my first swap between bloggers and it didn't disappoint me.  I was lucky to be partnered with Alyssa from Wish You Were Here and she was so nice to "meet"!  After she saw my blog and saw that we recently had a new addition she was thoughtful and got a personalized ornament for us.  Here it is...

And because I need to show off the rest of our tree...I let Leo do most of the decorating.  And the hubby told me we need to get a new tree because it looks pretty cheap (in his words) and when I was getting it out and "fluffing" it up I kind of saw what he was talking about.  But it's only 2 years old and I want to get the most out of it.  And it's not too big which is good because we don't have a lot of room.  And seriously...Leo loved decorating it and that was enough for me. Plus he told me it looked beautiful when it was all lit up and we were standing in front of it in the dark.  That was good enough for me!

Yay! Glad it turned out well! I was nervous to send it without seeing the final product. :)
