From setting up the tree, decorating the house takes few days. There’s always something here or there to be done. Something new. Something we’ve always done.
Memories of ornaments received.
Most of the ornaments we have are handmade. By us, by my nieces and nephews when they were young, by my beginning of sewing and crafting, by my mom, or Mark’s grandma or a good friend who is amazing at her ornaments, and we’ve ben lucky to receive them as presents since she started sewing them, more than 18 years ago.
Things to be moved around, put away for few weeks, to enjoy the decorations and decorating of Christmas.
The house is transformed, just for few weeks, and we love it. I do have to say, the tree at night is the best time of the day to watch it. It is our perfect tree. Every time.
And now, I have to go finish up some projects that I need to place under that tree in just few hours. If you celebrate Christmas, have a wonderful time. We are ready to celebrate in family and with some dear friends.
