Christmas Tree and Christmas Banner

 Here is the finishing touch to our Christmas Tree!  We have had this quirky (butt naked) fairy/angel, since we got our first tree as Growed she is a little precious to us!  And, since he has been tiny, Josh has always sat on Tony's shoulders to put the angel on the tree.  But not this year!  Yep, he is just toooooo big.

We have been joking that Tony will be sitting on Josh's shoulders next year!

 We have a special narrow tree (our house is not big so it fits in the fireplace really nicely).  Excuse the mess!  We buy a new ornament every year to add to our collection...getting a bit full now!  And yes, the cat is choosing which one to grab and run off with first! can see another of our traditions there...Pringles!  When we are decorating we always share a pack of pringles - hee hee, some traditions are great!

 ...and here we are in front of the tree!  Excuse the ratty hair and no makeup!  Our 10 year old looks so big!
This is the banner I made - have wanted to make one of these for a while...we put it in the other fireplace!  Excuse the "impaled" nativity - its not sacriligious - honest!  Josh "reorganises" it every day, so you never know quite what it will look like! 

In fact, this shot misses out the mysterious penguins who keep encroaching on the scene!

This banner meets the challenge over at Gingersnaps to use white glitter - there is white glitter all the way round the edge of the penants and around all the letters

Thanks for looking

What a lovely tree! Looks like your cat didn't want to miss anything either. Your family looks happy and beautiful!
Merry Christmas!
