I just got finished decorating the Christmas tree...Halle sat in her bouncy seat and watched me until she fell asleep. I just love decorating the tree...don't you? Aaron and I put the lights on together last night and I did the rest this evening. I remember as a kid decorating the tree and how my Mom liked to move the ornaments from the spot my sister and I had put them. She liked a nice tree...I do as well....like Mother like Daughter. We also both picked Noble Firs for our trees....of course, they are the most expensive. But, growing up we always had a Noble Fir and that's what I'm used to. As I was decorating the tree I was remembering....with each ornament. This snowflake I got at Kyle & Angela's wedding, I remember the bazaar where I got some of my first ornaments....these faith, family & friends ornaments I got from Candace the year my Dad died...these bells I got for a wedding gift...the snowflakes as well...Grandma Carla gave these Noah's Ark ornaments to me. We have guitar ornaments for Aaron, one my Mom got especially for him on a trip to Lincoln City, Oregon....we have many Smore's ornaments...a guitar one, a bbq one and this year...Baby's First Christmas for Halle. AND...another Baby's First Christmas from Auntie Gail & Uncle Gary for Halle. I do love that all my ornaments don't match...it's a country Christmas tree...right down to the raffia tied on it...and that's just fine by me! Tell me about your tree!!
