our tree is FINALLY decorated! it took all of 5 or 10 minutes last night, but we got to do it TOGETHER. that’s what we kept waiting for…. those few moments when we could work together to decorate our tree. it’s filled with mostly ornaments from my childhood (my mom has a smaller, pre-decorated tree now, so i got all the ornaments)plus we have a few ornaments we’ve received since being married. so this is it…. and i like it!!
Tell me something special about your tree…. or what’s on it…. or what’s NOT on it….
Growing up, my mom was INSISTENT that even though we had an ARTIFICIAL tree, ALL (and oh boy, I do mean all) of the ornaments (strands of Christmas lights not included) had to be homemade. She tried to tell my Sunday school teachers one year that their little rosette/jingle bell ornament wasn’t "homemade enough" to be on our tree… that is, until one of my Sunday school teachers (the pastor’s wife, I believe) told her that she BURNT HER FINGER using the hot glue gun to make the ornaments! tee hee. I used to find GORGEOUS ornaments in the stores but I was never allowed to put them on our tree. Sigh. That was also so sad – so tragic – for me!
