Welcome to My Mommy Thoughts. I originally created this blog to document our lives hosting foreign exchange students in our home but I quickly discovered a passion for writing and blogging. This blog has become a little bit of everything.

So sit back, relax with a cup of coffee and enjoy!!

Home Tour Tuesday - Trim The Tree

 
 
So, I decided to try something new - and I am SO excited about it. My first blog hop is not that good because I am not prepared so I am going to do the best that I can!! So bear with me!!
 
This "Home Tour" is about trimming of the tree and my favorite Christmas ornament. I am not at home where I can take my pictures and put on the blog but I just so happened to have a couple of pictures on my phone. I'm sorry the quality is not the best and I definitely don't have a picture of my favorite ornament but I will do my best to make up for it later on!! :-)
 
 
Our Christmas Tree
(too bad you can't see the pretty Disney ornaments all over our tree)
 
Maggie's Ornament
I sadly realized that Maggie has been a part of our family since 2006
and she did not have her own ornament. What kind of Momma am I?
So here it is, Maggie's ornament - brand new this year. She is so proud of it!! 

Our new inflatable Mickey for the yard
Noah and Mommy had to test it out to see how it works
and how big it is. It's not as big as Noah and I would like but
it is still worth the $19.99 we paid for it. Maybe I'll invest in the
$60 inflatable Mickey for next year. Just couldn't bring myself to it this year!!


Here is our house all decorated!
We made the swap to LED colored lights this year and Keith
couldn't be any happier with the outcome. He and Papaw worked
hard on getting them up high! You can't see the inflatable Mickey
in the yard but you can see the Mickey outline in the wreath on
the door. We even changed his lights to colored LED and
he is much more defined now. I just heart him so much!!!

The family Christmas pictures in an earlier post showcase our mantel and Christmas stockings. If you can't tell, I am a DISNEY FANATIC!! I love Mickey Mouse and everything that goes along with Mickey. Keith and I went to Disney World on our honeymoon and bought Mickey and Minnie Christmas stockings. We went again in 2006, the first Christmas after getting Maggie and of course got her stocking while on our trip. We went again last year when Noah was 7 months old and it was only appropriate that we purchase his stocking while there. We couldn't find anything that just grabbed us so we got the traditional Mickey Mouse stocking. I love it even more because it looks like baby Mickey compared to Keith's Mickey stocking. 

I hope you enjoyed our impromptu Home Tour. I promise that I will prepare better for the next tour! LOL!!! Join in on the Home Tour with me by visiting Shannon at Webbisodes and Daphne from Flip Flops and Pearls.
