One last look at Christmas

I did not even want to put up a tree this year. We have so much going on trying to get the boat ready, figuring out what to keep, what to sell, what to toss, keeping up with a now mobile baby etc. that it just seemed like yet another task. Maura took great offense at this. She felt very strongly that it wouldn't be Christmas without the tree.

Maura convinced Mark to allow her free reign over the Christmas decor. I came home to find the tree erected and decorated. Maura was thinking ahead and put only non-breakable plastic ornaments on the bottom 3 feet of the tree. All the pretty glass baubles were well out of baby's reach as were most of the lights. Well done Maura! Now if I can just get you to be so motivated to take the thing down...

I have to give Maura credit because the tree provided Kitty with much amusement. What could be more fun thatn endlessly removing the ornaments on the tree only to have your Mum replace them- over and over.

This is our last look at Christmas 2010. Here's hoping yours was merry and bright. Onward to 2011! And may the new year bring us all health, happiness and adventure.
