We decorated the tree this morning. This year, we were able to hang much more on our tree. Last year we had a different type of tree, so our decorations were minimal. The limbs couldn't support most of the ornaments. Eamon and Aine helped hang lights, while Benton worked on checking all the ornaments for breakability. Much delight was had as personal ornaments were lifted out of the box and hung on the tree.
We also hung up our stockings. It became painfully evident that the mismatched look is not working so well. Mama better get moving on those handknit stockings. The goal was this year, but perhaps 2011 is more realistic.
