Christmas Tree – First fake one EVER!

So as we decided to not get a real tree this year, but still wanted to have something here for the Christmas cheer/spirit.  We were fortunate to borrow and old one from a friend.  As it’s small, fake and truthfully not so appealing for the first time ever, I told them to decorate however they want.  I am going to leave off my “nice ornaments” completely this year.

It’s small & truthfully it is very ugly but the kids love it so that is all that matters.


Earlier in the day the kids went to a birthday party where there was a great face painter and then had a two hour play date with another friend.  So the tree was put up still in their face paint.

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
