We started decorating our tree last night and so far it's looking pretty ~ We have several more ornaments I've yet to find but should today.
Don't you love turning off all of the lights and looking at the tree? As a child that was so magical to me . . . I would also get on the floor, on my back and lay under the tree and look up through the branches! Christmas was a wonderful time in our home, beautiful music playing and looking at the gifts under the tree, trying to guess what's inside. As an adult, it's a little different now with the financial responsibilities of it all.
But sometimes, just for a moment, in the dark, gazing at the tree's soft glow
. . . it's magical again.
