Yesterday I took the day off to get my tree and decorations put up. My poor kids have been begging and begging so my husband and I dug out the stuff and set to work. And as usual, the boys (including husband) hung up about 15 ornaments, all in one area, close to the bottom, and then they were done:) Then it was my job to decorate the rest, and clean up. We have 2 trees, one in the family room where we hang all of the Rankin & Bass stuffed ornaments. The other one is in the living room. This one is supposed to be the more formal tree with all of my glass ornaments but it has turned into the Marvel Comic superhero, Sesame Street, Star Wars tree. I don't mind because I know there will be a day when I'm decorating the tree without my boys.....let me stop before I cry! I have ornaments that my mom made when she did ceramics in the 70's. I have blown glass balls that are probably from the 50's. One is a transparent blue with a little bit of lead tinsel inside. My husband hates anything old, so you can just imagine the sneaking I do to put them up. He swears I'm going to get lead poisoning!
Anyway, I am attaching a photo of my sister and I with Santa. I'm on the left. My brother was crying so he was booted from the shoot. Sissy !
Have a great day!
