The Tree Hunt...
We parked, got out, walked around...there was the tree. And boom we were done.
I know some go for perfection, they stew about it, mull about it, take their time, but I am not like that.
I know life is imperfect. The tree is always going look a little wonky anyway, because the kids help me put the decorations on. And frankly, I like it that most of the balls, angels, and homemade ornaments are concentrated on the bottom half of the tree. I know that it makes them feel important and I see the pride on their faces whenever they walk by...like they are saying to themselves "that's my tree!"
We had some casualty ornaments...I lost it a little, not my proudest moment. Things break, again, that's life. So I put the decorating on hold and we came back to it. I didn't want their memories to be clouded by me getting upset. A few hours was all I needed to put it all behind me, and then we finished up...It's supposed to be fun right? I'll post a picture tomorrow.
