Getting There


The decorations go on my tree in layers. The lights. The popcorn, cranberry, and dried orange slice garlands. The natural, homemade ornaments–decorated cookies, twig stars, corn husk angels. Next, the antique and other homemade ornaments!

    Very cute! I wish I had that much patience to make things like that, but with two toddlers and three older boys they zap me of any remaining patience I might have had. 🙂

    That is just the style of decorations I like for a tree. Our trees were always the little Eastern red cedars that grow wild in this area. There is nothing like their fragrance, so it is worth it even if they do eat up my hands and arms while decorating. We haven’t been home for Christmas now for several years so no decorating, but I truly enjoy seeing what everyone else has done. This year we get to visit two new grandpuppies that we have never seen.
