Three Down, One to Go!

I have three trees up and only have one left to go until I'm done!
The tree in our den is the "Hershey's Ornament Tree". It's my favorite I think! You can't tell by looking at this picture, but EVERY ornament on the tree is Hershey's. It took me about 2 years to get these ornaments off of Ebay and in stores when I saw them. My favorite is the little stuffed kiss that's on top. Big Daddy won it for me in one of those crane-type machines!
The next tree is the one in our living room. This is where we have all of our favorite ornaments from friends and former students along with our childhood ornments that our parents gave us. The angel at the top of the tree was given to us by Big Daddy's Nanny who passed away right at Christmas with liver cancer. She knew she wouldn't make it, and went that summer before she died and bought all of the grandkids an angel for the top of their tree to remind them how much she loved them. It's a very special ornament for us and we smile when we remember her every year during this season.

Beautiful trees!!! Christmas trees brighten my day!

Sorry about those pesky ear infections :( I have a friend who's daughter has the same problem. She's went through 3 rounds of antibiotics and is currently doing the shots. If this doesn't work they are going to give her tubes in her ears. Poor babes! I hope they both get better soon!
