Our Christmas Tree is Up

It feels that I have been away for ages! I have been busy with Poj, work, Christmas stuff and gadget issues. I'm happy to share that I'm still busy with Poj =) but my work assignment is back in track, Christmas gifts are all wrapped up & are happily sitting under the tree, Christmas party is now finished, my iMac is now fixed and I only have one gadget issue left - one that I'm too tired with that I don't even want to go there!

And now that my computer is back, I can update my blog and catch up on what I've been missing with my blogger friends.

One of the things we've been up to is finding our perfect Christmas tree for this year.

Erick & I have been together for a long time but never bothered putting up a Christmas tree. But we decided to change our ways and get one last year for Poj's 2nd Christmas. We enjoyed decorating it so much plus it made the house a lot more Christmassy.
This year, Poj knows a bit more about Christmas, we've started introducing it to him and I just found out that his nursery is doing the same.
We picked him up one night and he's been saying I want a Christmas tree!

It's handy that there's a small tree farm close to his nursery. We drove there in the morning and Poj helped choose our tree for this year. We opted fot a smaller tree which was not only cheaper but fits our  humble home much better. 

I decided on 'recycling' as the theme for this year. I used some of the lovely cards we received last year plus our some of our old baubles. This theme followed with all the Christmas gifts as well. We didn't buy any wrappers and used leftover from previous Christmasses.

We wish everyone a very merry and meaningful Christmas =)

  13. Very nice concept for a Christmas Tree my friend, and you are really resourceful for recycling some cards and other things to decorate the house with the theme! Advance merry Christmas to you my friend and I am so happy that everything seemed to be in order and you can blog again! I know all your blogger friends miss you :) Have a great day to you :)

  14. What a cute tree! I don't think I could ever have a small tree coz we got tons of ornaments to hang. LOL But a giant tree won't fit our living room. So, we do settle for something that fits the living room window's height. Nice family picture!
