O Christmas Tree

Needless to say, we've had alot of fun making and decorating Christmas trees this week!  Thanks to Jess @ Get Busy Living for the inspiration for the cluster of trees.  
A short cute story from our week of tree trimming...
I cut out Christmas trees of green construction paper for the boys to decorate with markers and glitter pens.  They then got to hang them around the school room.  Tim asked if I could make him an extra one.  He wanted a Christmas tree for his Snoopy and Woodstock friends.  So, now, behind our recliner is the Christmas tree leaning up against the wall with Snoopy, Woodstock, SpongeBob and some other "friends" gathered around it.  
Is that sweet or what!?!  


  1. I love the handprint tree. WE did the pinecone tree to.

  2. Love your cluster of trees!!! So cute! And I, too, have a limited number of fingerprints thanks to hot glue burns...ah, the life of a crafter!! Merry Christmas! :)

  3. Love all of them! That pinecone looks super simple and so cute! :)

  4. I love the handprint Christmas tree. I love to do craft projects that involve tracing the boys hands to see how much they have grown from year to year. I'll definitely be making that this year. And I actually just bought one of those ribbon trees from a friend that is making them this year. So cute!

  5. Thanks, everyone, for your time spent reading my randomness and for your sweet comments!

It's not about me at all, this wellness journey I am on to a healhier version of myself.
Not at all.
Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
