The Christmas Tree Goes Up
Our big splurge at Christmas here is buying a live Christmas tree. The high school students sell them as a fundraiser and they're delivered by Christmas-caroling teenagers once they arrive by barge. Sky is getting old enough to be excited about these sorts of things at Christmas time and she and Fire loved helping decorate the tree. Having a tree up in the window really makes it seem like Christmas to me, especially when it still feels like summer outside.

D, as an electrical engineer is in charge of the lights
and because he's an engineer, they look perfect!

I don't know about you but taking out the ornaments each year brings back so many memories for me. Each one is something special

I've had this ornament for years and never knew that it opened up- obviously, I think it's even cooler now!
All done but for the star. It's definitely Christmas time at our house now!
