25 Days of Crafts! Day 25: O, Christmas Tree!

Well, I made it to 25!! Yeah for me! I think the yearly Christmas tree is the quintessential family craft project. Here's ours. Everything three feet down is in a different spot than when I first decorated it. I tried to keep the boys away from it, but that turned out to be a losing battle. Putting a giant conifer in the living room, covering it with lights and sparkly ornaments, and then telling them not to touch it seemed cruel, anyway. After all, so many of our ornaments were made with their help. Those will be the ones I cherish most. I see this tree as perfectly reflecting my imperfect life, but it's the life I love. Merry Christmas!!
