We started with all the boys ornaments.
Q-tip has an amazing collection of Grinch ornaments from his Great Grandpa that he loves to put up and we all enjoy seeing. Considering that is one of Animals FAVORITE movies he liked saying "I saw that on TV" and would tell us how the scene played out.
My mum putting up some of the ornaments she has purchased me over the years.
After the ornaments comes the star. Animal being the youngest usually gets this privilege.
We acquired this star from our neighbors in Germany after purchasing this tree. I love the star so much I do not see myself ever replacing it. It is a lovely reminder of the great friends we have made over the years. Thank you Mrs Daisy!
Lit, decorated and topped. Adorable!
The stockings are hung by the chimney with care...and the watchful eye of S'mores. He LOVES sleeping right next to the fire. The warmest place in the house.
We still have the first tree J and I bought together in Oklahoma over 10 years ago. It adds a bit of Christmas charm to the dining room.
J and Q-tip also put up outdoor lights this year. I am so thankful I had no part in that. They look great! Festive and full of holiday charm. Now bring on those presents.
