So the tree is down and the ornaments are packed away. As I packed them up (organized by color, ahem) I counted and tallied and added and figured up the grand total.

You could almost sing this to the tune of “12 Days of Christmas”:

  • 37 clear
  • 31 silver
  • 31 gold
  • 29 red
  • 20 paper (including the adornaments)
  • 17 blue
  • 14 white
  • 11 purple
  • 10 pink
  • 9 wood
  • 6 green
  • 4 multi-colored (nativity scenes)
  • and 2 porcelain ballerinas (Christmas Eve gifts from a close friend for the girls – couldn’t NOT let them hang them!)


THE WINNER: Jodi @ My Life As Mama Jodi who guessed 215!!

Oddly enough, Jodi had the highest guess – NOBODY guessed over!

Clearly, y’all underestimate my love for Christmas ornaments. And that’s NOT including the ornaments tucked inside my garland on the piano or the basket of ornaments serving as a centerpiece on my dining table. 😉

Congrats, Jodi, I’ll be contacting you about your Sonic giftcard! Thanks to everybody else for helping me get my tree taken down with a little bit of fun.

Hey, y’all! I’m Amber and I wear many hats. I drink a ton of coffee and I’m constantly sweeping crumbs off the floor. After 18 years of homeschooling, I’m getting close to graduating my third child and now we are starting over at preschool with our fourth, Lil Miss Mouse. She keeps us young and she’s the main reason for my excessive coffee consumption. Drink up!
