I had mixed feelings about decorating my house for Christmas this year. How could I look at the tree and not see my Harley curled up underneath watching me? :*( I miss him so much.
Earlier this past week, I decided I wanted to decorate. I brought the Christmas ornaments box upstairs. I was hoping my husband would bring the tree up. I had it sitting at the bottom of the basement steps for 3 days. He didn't take the hint though. :(
Today, I cleaned the house and then brought the tree container up. I scratched my arm in the process but I got the tree upstairs.
Here's a instacollage of some pics. The plaid is my tree skirt (still has some Harley hair b/c he always laid on it), the tree being assembled, lights, ornaments and the tree set up.
I got the lights on the tree and then I started going through the ornaments. I dropped one and pieces shattered. It was our glass pickle that our friend, Laura gave us years ago. :(
As I was going through the ornaments, I found one that made me cry. It's a salt dough ornament I made in 2012 with Harley's paw print. ;(
I put it on the tree. Harley might have passed away but he's still with me in my heart and with little reminders.
I have lots of tiny little baubles. I love baubles. Just the name bauble makes me smile. haha
Here's some ornaments that I like.
A clown I made in middle school.
Here's the ornament I got while we were in Ohio. It was a freebie for Nate's half marathon run.
This is one we already have. :)
The tree is all decorated and looking cute. :)
We normally put the tree in the corner of this room (to the right in picture) but I decided I wanted it in front of the windows this year. I like it here since it's such a big tree so it doesn't look so crowded in front of the windows.
