A view of our tree

When we decorated our tree on Saturday we put up ornaments that have never been used before.

When Mr. Potts and I were first married, we spent the first Christmas with his family. I've mentioned before that his Meme (Grandmother) is now mine.

When she asked what we'd like for Christmas I asked for a set of ornaments. Specifically, The Twelve Days of Christmas. I had in mind the Crate and Barrel 12 Days of Christmas ornament collection.

I'm so glad that is not what she chose.

Instead, she found The 12 Days of Christmas that put those I had picked out to shame.

When I opened the box on Saturday, my sweet niece oohed & ahhed. "Aunt Mrs. Potts!!! They're beoootifuuullllll!"

My precious nephew echoed the sentiment, "Boootifuuullll!"

Of course, they had to supervise where these went. I tried to capture some of the detail to share with you. I hope you can see them (I think the "5" showed up the best).

12 Pipers Piping

9 Ladies Dancing

8 Maids a Milking

7 Swans a Swimming

FIIIIIVVVEEEEE Golden RINNGGGGSSSS!

A few other faves on the tree.

Precious nephew loved the car.
One of my faves - the pretty kissy fishy! Without flash/with flash.

oh I love those 12 day of christmas ornaments, tell me you know where she got them!?!?! Our "tree" this year consisted of the little metal ornament tree from crate & barrel. We're in the process of preparing to move and are currently dealing with such a small place that there is no room for a tree. My favorite ones that we hung this year are a little nutcraker the hubs bought me our first Christmas together and a litle hockey stick with a glove & puck hanging off of it that I bought for hubs. :)

I LOVE my choo-choo train on a rainbow that I've had since I was four. I posted it here: http://notesfromthegrove-boise.blogspot.com/2009/12/seeing-things-in-whole-new-light.html

Every year it just makes me feel so good!
