Christmas Tree Ornaments

These were some of my very favorite ornaments on our tree last year (they actually all belong to my mom, as I am but an ornament-less vagabond).

I love looking at this Santa--something about that plump little face!

Ingenious use of a walnut shell, don't you think?

And, the magnus opus ornament (I really love this one), which at about a foot tall was too big for our tree but was happy on a windowsill.

So, we've yet to put up a tree this year and I've been going back and forth on the idea. I love Christmas and love having a tree, but with the toddler and all part of me just doesn't want to mess with it. But really, that would be giving in way too easy I think. It's just that we have a nice, healthy live tree from last year sitting in a pot on our front porch, so naturally if we had a tree it would have to be that one. Now, I am not very good at math, but I'm pretty sure I know what Pot of dirt in house+Toddler equals. I'm thinking a very secure tree skirt is in order, and then maybe all will be well. Which means I have work to do. More work, that is. I know I just got finished bragging about how I had all my gift-giving business together this year, but then last night I looked at a calendar and thought about a deadline date for gifts that need to be mailed off, and, well, yikes! I need to get crackin'!
