I do have my tree up. On Saturday Jay helped me dig out the boxes from our storage room. Elijah helped me decorate for a couple of hours. It took the whole day, so he actually lasted quite a while. He loves getting out the ornaments and discovering them - once he's seen them all, he's outta there.
Last year I did Santa, so I did my Victorian theme this year. These decorations are stored in six totes and twice as many boxes. Not little ones, either. I used every last strand of gold and pearl bead garland that I had - and it was plenty, trust me. The floor is groaning under the weight of this baby. So far I haven't located the tree skirt I want to use...so I'm going to tease you with little snippets until I do. Here's one of my favorite decorations.
