Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

After six (or more) years of using red pepperberry garland on my tree, I decided it was time for a change.  This year, I've used poinsettias and a new topper that I made to replace the angel (her lights needed restringing).

Here's the "before" from last Christmas:


And here's the after:

Lol, nothing wrong with that! :) I was just curious. We are the type who ends up with a new tree and pick out our yearly colors. We have some important ornaments too but we just add them in with the colors we pick. I like the variety lol.

Love them both!! Why do you always stick with the same colors? Any reason?

Most of my enormous collection of ornaments are red and/or white.  I think I just tend to gravitate toward them.  (I wonder if it's got anything to do with my Crimson Tide fanhood.)

Most of those ornaments have their own story, too.  I couldn't ditch them and go with an entirely new color scheme.  Red and white it shall be!

I like that, too.  I think we've been together too long to have any that don't mean "SOMEthing".  This is a 20 year collection.  God, we're old.

Thank you.  :)  It's making me smile.
