Christmas 2010

I wasn’t ready for Christmas this year.  

I got the tree decorated early.   We have a pre-lit tree with white lights but some of the lights wouldn’t  light this year so I added strings of multicolored lights.    I thought it was one of our prettiest trees ever.  


All of the ornaments on our tree have been collected over the years.  My Grandma made me this sled ornament when I was growing up.  It’s made with popsicle sticks. 


The shopping, baking and Christmas cards left undone gave me stress.

Even though I wasn’t ready for it, Christmas came.

I didn’t get some things done but it was alright.

Hi Merry Mary, Your tree was beautiful! You sound a bit blue..I didn't get everything done either..sometimes I think we expect too much of ourselves..and if we don't do everything perfectly it is not a perfect Christmas..but it all turns out OK anyway.. I am just glad it is over:)
