Birthday Tree

I love my multi purpose twig branch...I hang homemade ornaments on it according to the season/occasion.

I had a mini set of led lights on hand (left over from a science project) and they were just perfect, I loved how the tree glowed!

Here is the tree all dressed up for my daughters birthday.
