We're into single digits now!
Like Mom's tree, mine is quite ecclectic. I've always admired the colour-coordinated trees, and Mom and I even tried it one year when I was a teenager. We went out and bought and made a whole bunch of pink, gold and Victorian themed ornaments, but in the end, we were just too attached to the grade school ornaments, the blown glass ones that reminded her of the ones her grandmother had, the ones we crafted together.... we are admittedly a sentimental bunch.
That's probably why, when I moved out and Dad gave me a small (2 ft) pre-lit tree, Mom gave me a bunch of special ornaments that I used to hang on her tree. (It also made room on hers for more ornaments from the girls...)
My tree may be little, but it's jam packed full of love. Just as it should be.
Do you have a favourite ornament on your tree?
