Ta Da.....

Well we did it. We got our tree and it is finished! I might get a couple more little things here and there but this is what the main idea is. I tried something new and a little different this year. I added ribbon all down it and put in some sparkly, squiggly things in it as well.

Here it is:                                                             Before


This is my little one with her first Christmas tree experience!

On another note, if anyone wants the Kahlua recipe, here it is:) Enjoy

3c. sugar
3c. water
10 tsp. instant coffee (crystals)
2T. vanilla
1 fifth vodka (apprx. 4 c.)

Simmer sugar, water, and coffee for 1 hour. Add vanilla, cool partly, then add vodka. Cool. May drink immediately!! I store it in a Kahlua bottle:)

P.S. I don't like it as sweet, so I only use 2 cups of sugar:)
Thanks again for stopping by and all the wonderful comments!
