So I finally got the Christmas Tree and decorations up. I more or less let the kids go for it this year with the tree (I'm usually a colour co-ordinated control freak), because the old eye was giving me jip, and the thought of sticking my eye with an artificial pine tree branch made my toes curl. (I know it should be real, but a couple of years ago, I got this poor looking thing from the warehouse, and its sort of stuck around). Anyway I just handed it over to the Busy kids and told them to knock themselves out. I picked up these fairy baubles from Spotlight last year. Three boxes of 24 knocked down from $25.00 to just $1.00 a box. Totally doesn't go with the colour scheme, but this year it just didn't seem to matter. Christmas carols belting out, and the kids doing the tree without me taking over the whole show looks like it might be the way to go!
Pauline bought me this decoration. I just wish I looked as good!!
She would say, "Oh Elizabeth chuck her out and just go and get a new one."
But I can't. So she stays.
Then I had these sticks in a vase. (My sister Pauline sticks sticks in a vase and they look amazing. You should see her Christmas deco's. They are out of this world!)
