Too Much??

Okay, so I've never loved my star Christmas tree topper. It's cute, but it wasn't exactly what I wanted, but it's what we came home with after shopping for our first Christmas adornments as a married couple. I'm of the mindset that a tree should be topped with a star, symbolizing the star that led the wisemen to Jesus. But this year I was wanting to add a little more 'ummph' to the top of our skinny little tree. So after our tree had been up a few days, I went to Hobby Lobby during one of my lunch hours and purchased a few sprigs of fanciness. And now I think I may have gone over the top. I'm embarrassed that I am even showing you (all five of you who read this). What do you think?? The star is still there, you just can't really see it anymore. Oooh ,that sounds so metaphorical.

When Tom came home and saw it for the first time he said, "it looks like our tree is on fire." A few days later he said, "I know what that reminds me of! Kevin, the bird on Disney Pixar's UP!"
