For so many years, 21 to be exact, our Christmas tree has been decorated with kid-made ornaments, ornaments in bright shades of red and green, and ornaments with faces of Sesame Street characters.
But now....my children are all grown up and it is time for a grown up tree! A tree decorated 'my' way! We haven't finished decorating yet, but it is turning out really great - lots of seashells to coordinate with my beach-themed house, shiny balls of gold and silver, and strings of pearls to represent pirate booty (that was Chip's idea!).
We will still have Santas and reindeer, and cute pictures with Santa from years past. But, for once, the tree is my creation!
