Its beginning to look like Christmas

It is beginning to look like Christmas at the Penzo house!

 It has been a family tradition of ours to have a real tree every year. 
Growing up in the military, we moved a lot so it was always easier to get a real tree and not store a fake one. 
This is one of my favorite family traditions and we are so excited to share this with A.

So, last week we ventured out to get our tree. We found the perfect one, Tall and skinny - exactly what we needed for our house!
After letting the limbs fall out, Brent put the lights on..
And the decorating began!!

After pouting(this is what Brent said I did) because I could not get my wire ribbon to stay on the tree haha ...
( If you get a real tree the limbs are flimsy and you never know how they will fall out)  
we put all the ornaments on and it looks perfect!
 Addison absolutely loves it and says "treeeee" every time she sees it.

 Sweet DeeGee ornament!

 This is another family tradition in our house.
 It is a German tradition- on Christmas Eve you hide the pickle and who ever finds it gets to open one present!

 Look at my sweet husband! :)
 Do you think A looks like me? :)

We love our very 1st Christmas tree as the Penzo family!

Christmas is my very favorite... can you tell?
What are some of your favorite Family traditions?
I would love some new ideas!

Merry Christmas!
The Penzo's


  1. I love the pickle ornament tradition! That is so neat! You have a lot of great traditions! We don't really have any; however, I think I will start collecting a theme of ornaments every year and one day give them to our kid/kids.

  2. I also have that hope ornament! I love it. I think all Delta Gamma girls should have one!

  3. Love your tree and all of your decor!!!

  4. I love your tree! So pretty! And Addison totally looks JUST like you!

  5. Courtney- we do that with Addison. She gets a few new ornaments every year so she will have some for her own tree on day!

    Sara- Wal-mart has great Hope stuff! I agree!

    Lea Liz- thank you!

    Savannah- Thank you! Its crazy to find pictures that look like her!
