The first hurdle was trying to figure out what to do about the one strand of lights that went out IN THE CENTER of the PRE-LIT tree. Cool Breeze knew that I was really wishing for some colorful lights this year, so he added two long strands of colored lights! He's the best:) Can you see the starfish in the center of this photo?
Snow White then proceeded to hang the ornaments. It was SO much fun to reminisce about the origin of each ornament, and to listen to what SHE remembered about some of them. She remembered the pre-school teacher that taught her to make some of her first ornaments out of construction paper, glitter and pipe cleaners:) This beauty is about 14 years old.
CB's mother gave us this beautiful tree topper a number of years ago. She's top heavy,(the Angel, NOT CB's mother), and gave CB quite a fit when he was trying to put her on top of the tree. She finally settled down:)
I enjoy sitting on the sofa and just staring at the lights. My dog and cat enjoy it as well!
Can you tell we are Wolfpack fans?
Snow White also remembered that she and I made these lovely ornaments with a bunch of neighborhood kids one year. 1995, I believe. It snowed every Friday for about three months, and the kids were starting to go a little stir-crazy. Thank goodness I kept a ready supply of craft items on hand. These had ribbons and jingle bells on them! Oh, and, of course, GLITTER!
