Christmas photos

Here are our 2 Christmas trees:

First, we have, "Chief" all decked out in festive red mini-balls and gold ball garland:

Then we have the "Real-Artificial Tree" downstairs:

This is the first time we have put our tree downstairs, because it's the first time the walls have been up and painted in the basement! It is also the first time that we decorated "Chief". By putting the tree downstairs, we could also enjoy the fireplace channel in HD...

This was the first year that I wasn't excited about decorating for Christmas. I didn't want to expend the energy required to unwrap ornaments, hang ornaments, and then put it all away again. I was going to be happy without a tree - displaying Christmas cards, and a glittery wire tree on the kitchen table, was enough for me.

But Jason insisted on the tree. And I'm glad he did. I love looking at our ornaments. There are the glass balls that belonged to my gramma, the fuzzy angel face that my mom passed on to me, the tin ornaments that Jason and I bought ourselves as part of our, "every year we will buy a few of our OWN ornaments" series, and there is Jason's dog face ball that he made as a kid.

As long as Jason helps me package up the ornaments - with great care - or I have a super-burst of energy when it's time to take the tree's all good.

aw, that's so sweet. my mom still has the first tree ornament that i made - a little bell made from a styrofoam egg carton, painted with red poster paint that is almost all flaked off, and hooked to the tree with a green pipe cleaner. lol sounds like you all had a cosy, warm christmas with your two "trees."

It's funny how the chore becomes something we're glad we did. LOL. I understand the "no enthusiasm" for decorating and then the "good idea" when we're done. The trees are simply lovely and the finished basement sounds wonderful.
