I always intend to take pictures of my Christmas trees so I'll remember what to do the next year, but I think this is the first time I've actually done it. Of course, I probably won't remember to look at the pictures next year, but I'm heading in the right direction.
I only decorate the top of the tree, and the kids (mainly Alex and Anna) decorate the bottom. The kids also have their own tree, but I hadn't taken a picture of it before my camera decided to quit. Maybe next year?
I love Christmas ornaments, and one of my fave things to do when we travel is collect ornaments. I especially love my Russian wooden soldiers and my Chinese cloisonne' ornaments. Another fave is the little glass jar filled with pink Bermuda sand. Oh, those were the carefree days!
