My tree is not what I would have wished, and not what I had planned. I wanted one of those crazy decked out trees you see in the Christmas shops. Unfortunately, that was cost prohibitive. I never was able to get the frou frou stuff to go in the top, or get that wonderful wide ribbon to go around and around it. And as small and inexpensive as it is, the poor thing might collapse under all that weight anyway. Still, it's not so bad and I did enjoy making several of the ornaments.
The birds, balls, peppermint candy and the odd peppermint striped ornaments. I really love to do something new each year. It seems to get me in the spirit. I may be a little under the weather and busy, but I'm still in the Christmas mood. I'm really looking forward to watching my loved ones open their gifts. I meant to cut down on my spending this year, but alas, that just didn't happen. And you know, I didn't even tell LeLe for the umpteenth time, that this was going to be a smaller Christmas. I've told her so many times, she just ignores it now.
Merry Christmas to All!!
May God Bless you and your family this holiday season.
