two more trees

I love decorating for Christmas…and I do a lot of it. Unfortunately, my own house still needs a little more attention, but with Thanksgiving and both boys playing in basketball tournaments all weekend…I just didn’t have the time to finish it.  I did however, manage to hit the road and head up to my parent’s place yesterday to fulfill my annual tree decorating duty at their house. I don’t know how many years I’ve been decorating their tree or sometimes trees…probably as long as I’ve lived back in Washington. But its fun to do and always feels good to share a little Christmas spirit.

Their tree never looks exactly the same from year to year, sometimes we add something new and other years I just decide to rearrange and try something different. I guess I don’t always have a plan, but just start hanging “this” and working in some of “that” until it feels done. They have some gorgeous ornaments, so making it beautiful doesn’t take too much effort on my part!

Here are some pictures of one of their trees this year…Unfortunately, the sun was shining brightly through the window and making it tough to get good shots without a lot of glare. But it was sunshine in late November, so I won’t complain!
