Trimming the Tree Part II

Are you sure it's supposed to look like this?

Ohh, so that's what it's supposed to look like!

Um. Tell me again why you want to put a tree inside the house?...

…and then hang things on it?

These are a few of my favorite ornaments. We have some that commemorate particular years (Baby's First Christmas for example). Others are glass or acrylic to add sparkle. Some are animals and birds just because I love them. 

Some of them remind me of places we lived. Many cute ones were given to us when my mother was in the Hallmark Ornament Club.

Now you've gone too far!
Unless you meant this for a chew toy, that is.

In years past we would wake up our kids to see the tree after it was decorated (by Santa, naturally). There would be hot chocolate and candy canes. This year we didn't put candy canes on the tree. Our children are grown and the youngest is far away. But we did open a bottle of wine and sit in the glow of the lights. Every year Ted says the same thing: "We have the prettiest tree/prettiest house I ever saw at Christmas!" and he keeps saying it until I agree with him. I never have figured out why he thinks our tree is so impressive but it's been 34 years since the first time he made a big fuss about it. Now his admiration of the tree is one my favorite things at Christmas.

Obviously Toby doesn't feel the same way. Maybe we pushed our luck with the antlers!

your story about your husband and the tree is just beautiful!! I love it! I have to agree with him, there is a certain coziness about your home/tree and I love it!

Ah, the circle of life. I was once a child with wonderful care givers, now I'm reciprocating the love.
