Tree Topper Bow

I love Christmas! All the things you can do and you never seem to be able to go overboard. 
This year we have two trees in the house. Thanks to Andrew's parents, when Joe and Rose moved here they brought us a tree from Tim and Linda that they have kept for us so one day we could have it. Its a nice 7feet tall, fat, tree, and it has the big outdoor lights on it. Its not easy putting these lights on. I have scratches on my arms and there are 4 extension cords on the tree. I wanted to do this tree for Andrew so he could have the memories of being home with his mom and dad. So this tree has become Andrew's. Which is fine since I have my tree too.

Mine is a penguin fashion tree. All the ornaments on this tree are ones that my parents have given me through out the years, and everyone who has ever given me a penguin ornament. My mom even gave me a really nice set for entertaining that is silver and white penguins. (there is penguins all over our house at Christmas) I LOVE PENGUINS! There is just something about them that amaze me in many ways.

Rose and I laughed about this the other night, but as you can see it really GLOWS.... We call it the National Lampoon Tree. Chevy Chase I have the glow in our house. :)

Here is my bow, I thought I was getting carried away making it. But it actually fits the tree great, I just kept making loop after loop. The tails were added on after I made the bow. All twisted together.

I love our tree in the front room. if only I could keep the dogs from going behind it. They love to sit at the windows and watch outside. We don't have ornaments yet to fill the tree, but as the years go by I know this one will be covered!
