Take two because we showed up at the cash only tree lot without cash and a barefoot baby.

Here is how we carted Winston home when we showed up with cash and shoes on the child.


Boyfriend rode in the front with Joey and I played with Leo in the back.

We chose to go with a small tabletop tree since Leo is a destroyer and the behemoth Higgins last year was intense.

Higgins 2011


Jenkins 2010


Why yes, all of our trees are butlers.

Here is Winston all gussied up and pretty.


Proudly displaying the DIY Snowball Ornaments I made.

We have a tradition of getting an ornament that symbolizes our year together.

This year I decided to make one and it turned out rather large.


Our initials and the year; huge because this was the year we became a family. I know Leo joined us late last year but we were all a hot mess. Trying to figure out how to keep the three of us alive is not what I would call great bonding time. 😉

2011 Ornament symbolizes our move to San Francisco said Captain Obvious.


2010 Ornament just states the year and is a bit cheap and tacky looking. Just like the apartment in Venice that we were living in.


We don’t have one from 2009 but I’m going to have one made at one of those custom websites. It hasn’t been a priority maybe today I will get around to it.

Other favorites:

Leo’s footprint from last Christmas; used my thumb for a size reference.
He was so tiny.


My first Christmas ornament.


My mom buys me a new ornament every year and this year I picked out my own. An owl of course and isn’t he fantabulous?!


Loving Winston! He is my favorite tree so far.

I want to see your trees!
