Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

Well, we did get our little 4' tree, got it up, but have yet to decorate. Hubby hangs the lights, & he was too tired last night to do it. I hung them one year & he got sooo upset I "didn't do it right", so I no longer do it. That's his job while I supervise the girls on hanging the ornaments. The girls decided they really love all our old ornaments so we litterly dug the box of Christmas decorations out of storage. Both hubby & I have ornaments from when we were kids & I have some that were my mother's when she was much, much younger! The girls LOVE just to look at them each year. I saw an article in a magaine a couple years back about how collecting old ornaments has become the hot new trend, and after seeing some of their samples of them from the 30's to the 60's, I realized that some of the ones I have from the 40's are probably collectables. Not that I'd ever sell any, they have too much sentimental value!! Oh, I did get a paper chain made (I really enjoy making paper chains!! LOL) but the rest of the family didn't want one on the tree, although we will never fit all we have from storage on our little tree, they'd rather fill it with them. So my paper chain will go to work with me & decorate the front of my reception desk.
And, now on to part #17 ~ 2 tabs & a tag ~

Glad you got a tree.....and were able to get some of your ornaments to put on it! :) Love the older ornaments, they are beautiful!

LOL about the stringing of lights on the dh is the same way!

Thanks for the goodies!

haha My husband does both the lights AND the ornaments. I'm management. ;) No, he's the one with the artistic eye, so I figure he can decorate it better than I can. It must work--I've gotten lots of compliments on it.

Thanks for the cute tabs!
