Oh Tannenbaum, part 1
Sunday i went over to fTM Karen's house to help trim their tree. Her boyfriend Cricket (who works in the Exhibits Dept of our museum) had spent the morning attaching new pine cone shaped LED lights. I like 'em! There were about 900 ornaments that needed unboxed, unwrapped and hung. Okay, maybe it was only 300, but it was definitely a lot of ornaments. I love Christmas tree ornaments; each one tells some story and it is fun to hear other people's stories. Karen, Cricket's mom Nancy and I put on the ornaments and then covered every available spot with glass icicles. After which Cricket added the Highland Angel. Here is the final decorated tree with and without flash. Ready for presents.
