Today was the day! Finally the tree is up! I assembled the tree and the kids decorated it. I didn't put a single decoration. I sat on the couch and directed them, with the main direction being to balance things and not have them all clumped together. They did a great job! Now they're watching TV with all the lights turned out and just the tree lights on.
What a great time of year this is!
I have a couple of quilty type of ornaments. First are some hearts I made about 8 years ago...
Next is a cathedral window ornament my wonderful MIL made for my oldest son's first Christmas...HERE. Super fast and easy to make, and a great way to use up scraps!HERE. It's easier than it looks :)
That tree looks gorgeous. Christmas is such a special time of year. Love your ornaments...and those cute old buttons. I'm inspired to decorate the house, my kids are a bit older and I haven't done it for a couple of years I'm sorry to say. But I will this weekend. I love Christmas.
Merry Christmas Joanna :-)
Your tree looks beautiful and that first shot of the room and kids by the warm light of the tree -- just priceless!
I loved your handmade wool ornaments. You've got me thinking about doing a "primitive quilting" themed tree in the future.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas......
