Today was the day for decorating the Christmas tree! It’s imperative for me to set the mood for this task by playing Christmas music, so I put on a cd and pulled my Christmas tubs out of the storage closet.
I always forget how much I dislike putting on the lights – maybe because I like lots of them! My husband bought another box of lights for me at Lowe’s this morning, so there are six hundred of them on the tree – but I think it could still use some more!
I have never put ribbon on the tree in this way before, but had seen it done somewhere, so thought I would give it a try. My eight-year-old (who was lying on the couch watching me) said she wasn’t “too fond of the idea!”
Next came our daughters’ favorite part – hanging the ornaments! We have a system whereby they hand me an ornament, I put the hook on it and then tell them the general area on the tree where I would like it to be hung – front, back or sides. Now that they’re getting older, they can arrange the ornaments pretty well for me.
