The other night the boy and I received a wonderful gift from my parents. They gave us a lovely, new, pre-lit Christmas tree AND let us select some of the old ornaments that my family used to put up on our trees year after year, to display on our new little tree. It was so much fun going through all the funky old ornaments and remembering when we got them (or made them in several cases) and how we used to always get excited upon putting them up on the tree each year. I had so many Nutcracker ornaments it’s ridiculous!
Now our little apartment really looks nice and festive. And we had so much fun decorating, even if I had a bit of trouble with the lights! These are all the decorations in both the living room (which is a traditional red and green) and our bedroom (which I kept as a tiffany-blue color scheme.)
