3rd Day of Yule: Trimming the Tree(s)
Part of the challenge of decorating this year is a toddler at the stage of 'what? don't touch THIS? Like THIS? What? You mean I'm not suppose to touch it ten seconds after you just said no? How about now? Now? You have to go to the bathroom sometime, Nana, and then watch out!!!" all said with a look that makes it impossible not to laugh.
I just have to show off a few of my current favorite ornaments - I put them all on the smaller tree as that just seemed to be where they needed to go.
The first just makes me grin every year when I pull it out - it's a plain glass ball with a very realistic lifesized little mouse perched up on the outside of it:
The other two I wanted to record specially are the newest additions - picked up last year and I WISH I could remember the company that made them - these are the first two ornaments Michael and I picked out together and they came in really stunningly decorated paper mache boxes. Aren't they pretty??
