Decorating the Tree

J and the boys picked up our Christmas tree from Lowe’s last weekend.  Wildman chose the family this year.  It might be a little squatty and it might shed its needles like mad but we think she’s a beaut!

We finally got around to decorating it on Tuesday evening.  We only had one ornament casualty.  The skiing Christmas bear’s skis were severed when he fell from a branch.  A little super glue fixed him right up though.

Wildman also insisted on a lighting pattern.  Red, green, green, red.  I love that he’s totally taking ownership of the tree this year 🙂

We made sure to honor J’s grandmother who passed away earlier this year by hanging some of her handmade beaded ornaments.  They bring a nice retro feel to our tree.  I really like them.

I took a little self portrait to prove that I was there, soggy hair and all!  J took a few pictures of me but they came out a bit blurry.

We had a nice time hanging all of our special ornaments right before the boys’ bed time.  I like to think that they will look back on these holiday traditions fondly.  J and I sure will!
