Christmas Tree for 2012

Still have to put my Angel topper on it and straighten out the skirt but it is done.  95% of my ornaments are homemade from my grandmother, my kids, sister, swaps or myself.

My new picture

I purchased a gift bag from Wal-Mart and a frame from Dollar General and we put this together. 
My mom used the back side and put hers in a white frame.  So 2 pictures from a $2.50 bag.

This is our dog Shorty (Shortcake) and a stray cat that appeared awhile back.  You would see the cat come up into the yard and eat Shortys food and now for the last few weeks you will see it come out of the dog house. It has a round spot to one side of where Shorty lays. The other a.m. I saw this and had to get a picture. They will sleep by each other.

Tree in backyard

This tree really has pretty color this year---even after our drought. The one picture is columbines that are starting up. We have roses blooming yet in this area. Not are norm.
