O Christmas Tree ~ 2

 This is the tree that you see when you enter our home.  It's in the entry/living room and is full of blown glass ornaments.  This is the one I have to watch the grandchildren around!  I begin by filling the tree with poinsettias.  They add a great punch of red throughout.  Then I add the gold beads, which is my least favorite chore of tree decorating.  It is so hard to get those beads to drape the way I'd like.
 After that comes a few dozen red glass balls and then the ornaments.  They are all my favorites, so I am going to restrain myself and just show a few.

This was purchased for my grandson Jackson last year on his first Christmas.
 Granddaughter Elizabeth's
 Benjamin and Cooper are 5 weeks apart in age, so they both got these darling blue booties.  I always hang them near each other:-)

 This is where we have been.
 And this is where we are now!
 Thanks for stopping by to see our 2nd tree.  I'd better hurry up on the rest of them!

It's beautiful!! I love blown ornaments.
I also hate to put beads on the tree. In fact, I left them off of mine this year out of pure out laziness.

Your trees are always gorgeous. I really love the family one, too. I haven't seen it all finished! You always do a beautiful job with all your decorating, you need to come give me some lessons!!!
