Decorating the Tree

Girls are ready to eat.


We had a fun appetizer dinner downstairs on the night that we decorated. We had summer sausage and cheese on crackers, meatballs, deviled eggs and shrimp cocktail. High protein for my sake. It was simple but festive for the sake of getting the tree adorned.





This was our family ornament for the year. We visited the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse when we were at the Oregon Coast this summer.

This isn't a great picture of it, but William made this ornament for me and surprised me. He made it out of pipe cleaners and tin foil. It's actually very pretty, shiny and colorful. It looks beautiful hanging on the tree.



I just think this ornament is neat because it is made out of coal.

So much fun. The kids LOVE to get out the ornaments and remember them all from last year. Many are gifts from my mother and they cherish them. The decorating night is always a looked forward to evening.
