I always promise myself that each year I’m going to get all the Christmas decorations and tree up the weekend of Christmas. Well I can say that half of the decorations were up and the trees were up but not decorated. However this past weekend we did get a chance to decorate the tree. We have two trees in our house, something we started last year in our new house.
First Christmas Tree
This Christmas tree is the first thing you see when you enter the house. It is in our living room which is really our “sports” room decorated in maroon and golds/yellows for Florida State and the Washington Redskins. For this reason this tree (thought it is hard to see) is decorated with maroon and gold decorations and is 9 feet tall.
Second Christmas Tree
This Christmas tree is in our family room where we spend most of our time. This tree has all the handmade and store bought ornaments from the time I was born until the current year. Each year when I was young my grandmother would give my sister and I an ornament and my mother has carried on the tradition. We have so many ornaments that we can’t fit them all on the tree. Guess we need a bigger tree!
