Harlee is our third granddaughter, fifth grandchild, and second to the baby. She was originally due around the first of January, but came December 18th. Prettiest early Christmas present ever!
I got my first digital camera when she was 7 months old, so I have quite a few favorites of her.I took this one in my back yard. She was only 7 months old. Not really sitting well yet, so she fell over right after I took this shot, then screamed because she touched grass. Serious texture issues back then. =)
First Halloween. My little bumblebee.
Second Christmas, but only 1 year old. =)

The next three ornaments chronicle mine and Larry's first three married Christmases. We married in 1990, got pregnant in 1991, and had Shelbi 3 days after our second anniversary in 1992. Busy, busy years. =)
When we bought our house nine years ago, I did the living room in moss green, cream, and mauve. That's when we started doing two trees. All of my traditional ornaments really clashed, so I bought a lot of Victorian style ornaments in my color scheme and added some gold. I LOVE this tree, even though I threaten every year not to put it up. It takes forever to do the lights and get it decorated. This year, I skipped the balls.
Usually, my class trees have been big and covered with student made ornaments, but because of the number of children and lack of space I downsized and now just have my little "teacher tree." They're taking their ornaments home for their trees.
This concludes my tour of trees. Soon I'll be posting pictures of grandchildren ripping open their gifts. =) Merry Christmas!
