Decorating for Christmas.

Last weekend we put up the 'real tree'
So dad put it in the stand, and it went into the family room.
It's tradition to have one fake tree and one real tree.

The real tree also gets all the glass ornaments. the old fake tree gets all the
ornaments we've had for years and years, and ornaments sister
and my boy made way back when they were little kids.
here are the glass ones for the real tree:

Sister started bringing over her presents for the family too,
so that they don't have tons to carry on xmas day.
This is just one trip.
They have many more to make.

The first ornament to be hung on the tree this year was hung by
my grammy, and it's the new one this year.

This is a stocking sister bought dad one year for xmas.
we are yankee fans around here. Dad hangs this one by my stocking-
because it's too heavy for the mantel pieces.

Sister takes a shot of a red ball on the tree- you can see the room
behind it all decorated.
you can even see my bed in front of the fire place!

our center piece for the dining room table.
Mom makes it look real special.

... more to follow tomorrow.
