My favorite ornaments

 

Well I finally got our tree up last weekend…I know, only a week before Christmas. I am usually chomping at the bit to get the festive accessories up, but this year, as we are in the middle of a kitchen ceiling reno – the dust and furniture rearranging just didn’t make it possible. So last week I did some more rearranging and got the front room ready for the holiday!

Every year when I pull out my ornaments I get giddy with excitement. It’s like I forget which ornaments I have and seeing them all just brings it all back. I do have a box filled with ornaments from my childhood, but I don’t actually put those up (once all the renos are completely done I plan to have a kids tree for all those ones)….it’s mostly one I have purchased in the past few years that make me happy, with a few the kids have made at school. And of course there are a few I’ve collected over the years that are special. Wanna see what’s on my tree? It’s  no Martha Stewart Christmas Tree but seeing it all lit up and decorated just makes me smile. Last year I even considered keeping it up all year and just decorating it for each holiday. I may or may not be considering it again…
