No Doubt

Just in case anyone isn't sure just how big of a nerd I am, I present our 2020 Christmas tree. And yes, we do have a giant Star Trek Enterprise on the top. And for the record, I love it and all its nerdy glory.

Our tree also has every single Star Trek ship ornament Hallmark has put out over the years.

My husband started collecting them back in 1992. He didn't have the first one - the Enterprise pictured below. When  we got married in 1996, I made sure to get the new one each year. I searched and searched for that Enterprise for years, but they were outrageous; over $100. A few years ago I was lucky enough to find a cheap one on Ebay, without the original box. I pounced on it. 

We had planned on adding the rest of our ornaments to the tree, but when the kids saw it, both of them suggested we leave it as-is this year. They got no complaints from me.

If you look closely, you may also find the one non-Trek ship in our collection. Friendship 7, in which John Glenn became the first American to orbit the earth (1962.) See, total nerd...
