Reason #57 Why You Should Never Move Out of Mom’s House…

2006-1.JPGThis is the first year ever that we have our own Christmas tree, and it shows. 🙂 It’s not exactly the type you’ll find in Martha Stewart’s magazine, isn’t it? No collectible hand-painted glass balls from Europe, nor fancy crystal ornaments like the ones hanging in our moms’ trees. Our decorations consist of 3 garlands (all in contrasting colours, mind you) and about 15 silver balls. Oh, and we also made some gingerbread ornaments – just to mix it up a little bit.

In spite of our tree’s rather bare-looking state, I LOVE IT. I love it because it is our very2006-2.JPG own. And finally, after 2 long years of seeing other people’s trees through bay windows, we have started our own tradition. After New Year’s Day, I’m going to the mall to get some more ornaments. I am one of those people who will not buy anything Christmas-related until it is at least 85% off. 😉

Hopefully by next year, we’ll have some bells and be coordinated enough to decide on a motiff. For now, it’ll just have to be red, blue, gold and silver.
