What a wonderful day it was...







Sometimes I think I miss the antics of cats ... but only sometimes..... lol....naaahhhhh ....













But, in reality I love when the tree stays the same for the whole few weeks it is up. And, it even stays up! Bonus.











There are so many beautiful cards. Love to get them... hate to throw them away. I recycle cards in several ways. Sometimes, when I get a particularly beautiful one ... I save the best part of it to use in a dark area in the tree .... or just to tuck in behind some lights and sparkly decorations to add a whole new dimension to the overall beauty of the tree. It is yet another tradition I suppose. And...I always know who sent it... often there is even some handwriting on the reverse. It is fun to see them each year when I unpack the decorations. Reminisce about the sender.... marvel at the art work.

Neat idea - the tree looks so pretty! Mine looks funny now that the giant heap of presents is gone from underneath ..
