We hosted our third annual Christmas Tree Decorating Party last Friday. Of course, we Reetzs kicked it off with a toast, to Merry Christmas magic and dreams coming true and family of friends. After Maple hung the first five ornaments on the tree, we packed on the rest until the tree began to tip over. (Shocking? Not really. I guess 400+ ornaments adds a little extra weight to one side.) The cookie decorating contest got down and dirty this year. The Di Peitros added to the sweetness by sharing their Tom & Jerry secret. True to tradition, Reetz was awarded a riveting round of applause for skillfully cramming my Sunday School angel atop the tree. And always, we never forget to gather for the mandatory memorable group photo.
