Thanksgiving Weekend Part II

We finished decorating our tree today, Sunday, and it is so cozy and sparkly in our family room now; with a fire going in the fireplace it is the best room in the house.

Friday night we got the tree placed right where we wanted it; we released it from its wrapping, added lots of water to the stand, and then let it “rest” all night.  Actually, we needed to rest, not the tree.

We like our Christmas trees to be filled with all kinds of ornaments; each one holding a special memory or two.  There isn’t any room for garland or tinsel on our trees, and that’s okay with us.    It may look like a mass of ornaments to you, but it represents decades of wonderful memories to us.

I may be able to dress dolls, but I cannot dress a window if my life depended on it, so please don’t judge my windows.  They’ve been like this since we’ve moved in.  (How embarrassing!)  I think I should ask Santa to send me someone to help dress my windows.
