My biggest concern with our tree this year was if Camden would try to knock it down or try to climb it....seriously. Ha! I honestly thought he would constantly be touching it or pulling ornaments off, but much to our surprise he leaves it alone for the most part, otherwise we just redirect him and tell him the ornaments stay on the tree.
It's going well so far and I think it helps that most of the ornaments are shatterproof anyways so I'm less worried about them (and the ones that aren't I just put at the top out of his reach...) Grayson loves to lay by it and look up at the lights, so of course I jump at every chance for a mini photoshoot of that. I've got to get all the pictures I can before he turns mobile!
Our tree looks small in these pictures for some reason and these are just quick iPhone shots, but thre tree is actually a really good size and I LOVE the flocked style! I decided to just do red and silver bulbs this year and I really love how it turned out.
Anyway, I wanted to share some of my favorite personalized ornaments because I got a bunch of questions on my snapchat about them...
I got these adorable silhoutte ornaments of the boys from my friend Julie's 3 Daughters Design Etsy Shop! You can also find her on facebook here or instagram here.
Julie creates the silhouttes herself so all you have to do is send her a side profile picture of your child and she does it all herself! These would make great gifts for your friends with kids, too! (Note: use the code KEEPCALM10 if you want 10% off! The last day for Christmas orders is Dec. 6th so if you're interested order before then)
On the back of Grayson's it says "1st Christmas 2016" and on the back of Camden's it says "2016". They stand out on our tree so well (you can get others color combo's too) and are SO cute!
And then...as I was trying to find an ornament to honor Rocky (ugh-we miss him so much), I found this 'In Our Hearts Forever' from Personal Creations online and decided I needed it. I also had to get this Baby Mitten ornament for Grayson from there, too...
They have a huge selection of personalized ornaments for the whole family and the personalization is included in the price. You can see all their personalized Christmas ornaments here...
Hope you all have a great weekend!
