For the past several years, I have been dressing our Christmas tree essentially the same way. Commenting on that fact to a co-worker who is also a very dear friend of mine, she responded, “Chris, that is what tradition is all about. ” And here I thought I was just being cheap. :D I mean all the current decorations are perfectly fine, buying new ones will mean having to choose among the gazillion choices available in the stores (just thinking of it hurts my brain), and most importantly, I’m making a tradition. :D Other than our standard decorations, we do have a few extra-special ones scattered around the tree – they were either bought by us to remember certain special occasions, made by Alex when he was little, or given to us by families and friends over the years. They will always have a special place on our tree and in our hearts. Here are photos of some of them…

  1. Lovely decorations, Chris. Something new, something old, something given, borrowed, whatever… these are really special, I can see. The straw reindeer is just genius :-D

    I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and looking forward to “de” turkey :-)

    1. Thanks, Isadora. The turkey is currently roasting in the oven and is driving all of us crazy (I think especially the four-legged one :D). Our dog, Cyber has parked himself in front of his bowl, expecting his dinner anytime now. Not sure how he’ll feel if he knows that dinner will still be a few hours away. Enjoy the rest of your time off! Wishing you and your family a blessed new year.


  2. I’m so glad you got the package. :D Please don’t feel guilty at all…and I know you will put those things to good use…enjoy, okay? (without the guilt). :D
