Holiday Ornament Exchange

Hello my name is Beth and I have a Christmas tree problem.

It started out slowly, innocently. We had just moved into our new house. From the moment I knew we would have tall ceilings, I envisioned a BIG tree. So we bought a gorgeous 9 footer and to this day I still look at it and smile.  The following year I convinced Russ that the play room (now school room) would make the perfect place for smaller tree just for the girls. But what should I do with the old tree we still had up in our attic from years earlier?! Put it in our bedroom of course! What started out as 3 trees, which was already a lot for some most people, has now morphed into 6. I think they are multiplying in my attic. If I am being completely honest, sometimes I sneak a tree up there mid July. How many more do you think I can add before Russ notices? I’m guessing zero.

My love for trees translates to my love for Christmas decorations and ultimately my love for Christmas.

When Stephanie asked me to co-host a holiday ornament exchange I wondered how the lady with 6 Christmas trees could possible say no.

The idea is pretty simple and outlined above but I’ll break it down again.

    • Oh man :(. I wish you could too. It stinks that you miss out on so much of that stuff :(.

  • Lizzie Simantz

    6 trees?! Now that’s impressive! I was totally thinking about an ornament blogger exchange, I’m glad there is one and I will definitely participate 🙂

    • I’m so thankful you said impressive and not crazy :*. We would LOVE to have you friend.

  • Meghan Flinn

    Umm yeah, if you have 6 trees, you can’t say no to an ornament exchange!!!

    • I am pretty sure that is a rule or something.

  • Three boys and a girl blog

    oh yeah! this screams my name..I love any and all ornaments!

    • Oh me too. Collecting them through the years is always so special.

  • Yes!! I am SO excited about this ornament exchange! =)

    • I know, me to! It’s a simple one but it should be fun!

  • So fun! Can’t wait. I had a tree in the kids rooms but only Carly Jo seems to still be interested. I love having the lights on all over the house..it’s my fave.

    • The lights make everything feel so magical. It’s my favorite part too.

  • Ahhhh so fun! I’m heading over to sign up now!

  • OK, my decorating style for our tree could most be considered a hot mess. I love this idea. I really want to sign up, but my life gets so wonky I worry I will be a loser. I think I am going to try through 🙂

    • Lol! You could never be a loser Jen, your awesome :).

  • Desiree @ Macke Monologues

    Ornaments are one of my absolute most favorite things about decorating for Christmas! Count me in!!

  • Whitney Jordan

    I love your love of Christmas trees. When I was growing up my mom did one in every room – kitchen, guest bath, our bedrooms, etc. The house was magical at Christmas and it sounds like you aren’t too far away 🙂 I need to get a tree for Fletcher’s bedroom, Olive has one in her room and we always get a real tree for the family room. I can’t wait to decorate my house for Christmas and am excited to see all of your trees this year 🙂

    • YES! Your mom is my role model :P. I really want my girls to have such sweet memories. So they’ll either be the same way, or they’ll not decorate at all when they are older HA! I’ll never forget the look on Marissa’s face when she realized it wasn’t normal to have multiple Christmas trees. Silly girl.
