i haven't had a tree the past few years because we've been gone on or around Christmas. i really enjoy getting out all of the ornaments- lots of memories. i think that some are from sears 30 or so years ago when i had my first Christmas alone.
then there are the ones from special occasions- like the year we were in yellowstone for my parent's 50th anniversary.childhood memories- the troll makes me smile
and a wreath carrying tyrannosaurus rex from the same (given to my grandmother). it's a very eclectic tree and it makes me happy. rest of the decorations will make their way up over the next few days.
