Saturday evening was spent with the family (minus one, plus two), decorating the Christmas tree! Yay!! It was nice to go back home and be a part of that. My own tree is very small and still rather sparse in the ornament (and light) department. But our family's Christmas tree is packed with lights and ornaments and happiness!!
This year it was my turn to hang the Dancing Cow ornament, the treasure of our collection. It's a wooden cow with a pull-string that makes his arms and legs move, and was one of the first ornaments my parents got for their tree. There was also a hunt to find the paper fan angel with a photo of my brother's 8(?)-year-old face, another (slightly) more recent treasure.
