Angel Tree

I have a small Christmas tree. It's nothing really extravagant. Just a small, fiber optic tree from Dollar General but it sure lights up pretty. I'm a sucker for fiber optic lights and all the changing colors. Well, I decided that this tree would be my angel tree this year. I didn't get fancy at all in decorating it. Maybe next year. This year I just hung all of my angel ornaments on it. Next year it might be a good idea to get something with a little sturdier branches. I wonder if I could get one with fiber optic lights?

Here is a full view of this year's angel tree:

It's much prettier when the lights are on but it didn't really make for a good picture.

There were many this year that contributed to our angel tree and I send each of you my many thanks!

I received 2 ceramic ornaments (one for both Carleigh & Jordan) from April @ Our Broken Hearts, 2 gold angels engraved with Carleigh & Jordan's names from Sarita, a stocking for Carleigh from Ashley @ Missing Mackenzie, and 2 doilie ornaments made by Jess @ Peace Like a River, a Hallmark ornament from my coworker, Sharon, that I put Carleigh's picture in, a doilie angel from NMU for Jordan, a Reunion Heart from Celia @ Beauty From Pain that I made into an ornament, 2 bless this baby ornaments that I was able to get for both my babies thanks to Kristin @ Once A Mother, and I also hung up Carleigh's angel wings from Lea @ Nicholas' Touch.

I actually still have the angel tree up. All our decorations are still up. We'll prolly take them down this weekend. It sure was nice to be greeted by my angel tree every time I walked through our front door.

I love your angel tree! I am thinking I should take advantage of the after-Christmas sales and buy one. Maybe I'll do that tonight after work.
